Degtyaryov DP

(Redirected from DP-27)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

After the end of World War 1. In the design office of the Kovrov factory, under the leadership of Fedorov and his student Degtyarev, experimental work was carried out on the family of 6.5 mm automatic weapons.

Within this family, several variants of light, heavy, aircraft and tank machine guns with different barrel cooling and power supply schemes were developed. However, none of the Fedorov-Degtyaryov rifles were accepted for mass production.

Degtyarev at the end of 1923 began to develop his own model of a light machine gun. He took as a basis the design of his own automatic rifle, which he proposed in 1915. Then, combining known patterns, he obtained a compact system that received a positive review from Fedorov. On July 22, 1924, Degtyarev presented the first prototype of a disk magazine machine gun that he had developed for the Fedorov-Degtyaryov joint machine gun projects.

The magazine was designed for the 6.5 mm cartridge and had a capacity of 50 rounds. At this point in the project, it was decided to change the ammunition to 7.62x54R, but having already prepared the magazine diagram, it was decided to simply modernize it. Originally, the magazine held 49 rounds. Because the spring force was not enough to power the last cartridges, its capacity was changed to 47.

Degtyarev presented the next prototype in the fall of 1926. About five thousand shots were fired from two copies and it was found that the ejector and firing pin were not strong enough, and the weapon itself was sensitive to dust. In December, two more machine guns were tested in unfavorable shooting conditions, but they were also returned for inspection. At the same time, an improved Maxim-Tokarev model was tested, as well as the German Dreyse.

Degtyarev was superior to these structures, which then aroused great interest among the leadership of the Red Army. Despite this, Degtyarev had to make a number of changes to its design. Two modified Degtyarev machine guns were tested by the commission on January 17–21, 1927, and the machine guns were found to have "passed the test". On February 20, the same Commission, without waiting for the results of the improvements, decided to issue an order for 100 machine guns.

The first batch of 10 machine guns was presented for military acceptance on November 12, 1927. The army received the entire batch of 100 machine guns on January 3, 1928. On January 11, the Revolutionary Military Council ordered the transfer of 60 machine guns for military tests. Based on the results, it was recommended to add a flame arrester. In addition, a number of other comments were submitted. In August 1928, an improved model was tested. An order was placed for 2.5 thousand. Machine guns. At the end of 1928, a decision was made to discontinue the production of MT (Maxim-Tokarev) machine guns. As a result, the Degtyarev light machine gun ended up in the Red Army. The machine gun was adopted under the designation "7.62 mm light machine gun of the Degtyaryov system, model 1927". or DP-27 (Degtyarov Pekhotnyy 1927). The Degtyarev machine gun became the first mass-produced machine gun developed in the country.

Note 1: Different sources are may designate the DP as DP-27 or as DP-28; this confusion arose because the DP was accepted by the Russian military in 1927, but production started in 1928.

Degtyaryov DP-27

Degtyaryov DP - 7.62x54mm R

The "7.62 mm light machine gun of the Degtyaryov system, model 1927". or DP-27 (Degtyarov Pekhotnyy 1927). It was adopted by the Red Army as a basic light machine gun in 1927 and used with great success until the end of World War II. In Soviet sources, this rifle was most often marked DP without a year mark.

The DP rifle was a reliable weapon and easy to produce, but it was not without its flaws. The biggest mistake turned out to be placing the return spring under the barrel (the spring surrounded the gas piston shaft). In such intensively fired weapons, this caused the spring to heat up and lose its elastic properties. Also, the durability of some parts turned out to be lower than required.

During production, the weapon was modernized and adapted to new requirements many times. The result of this work were modifications to the box magazines and the belt feeding system.

Production continued continuously from 1927 to 1944, when a modernized machine gun was presented. Which was immediately accepted into service under the designation "7.62 mm light machine gun of the modernized Degtyaryov system, model 1944.". or DPM-44 (Degtyarev Pekhotnyy Modernizirovannyy 1944).

Degtyaryov DA-28

Degtyaryov DA - 7.62x54mm R
Degtyaryov DA-2 - 7.62x54mm R. Twin machine gun.

In 1926, before the DP entered production, variants had already been developed. Due to the demand for an aviation machine gun, it was decided to build an aviation version at that time. There were no major problems with this, especially since the Fedorov-Degtyaryov aircraft machine gun was in limited quantity in the army's equipment.

At the end of 1926, tests were carried out on the aviation version of the Degtyarev machine gun. In 1928, the turret machine gun was adopted by the Air Force as "7.62 mm aviation machine gun of the Degtyaryov system, model 1928". or DA-28 (Degtyarov Aviatsionnyy 1928). In Soviet sources, this rifle was most often marked DA without a year mark.

A new disk magazine with a capacity of 65 rounds was developed for the DA machine gun (for more reliable operation, its capacity was reduced to 63 rounds). The machine gun was also equipped with a pistol grip and new sights with a weather vane front sight.

A faceplate is screwed to the front of the body. Instead of a stock, a fluted wooden pistol grip and a rear grip were installed. A sleeve with a ring sight is attached to the upper part of the front. The magazine is equipped with a belt holder on the top, allowing for quick and easy replacement.

It was known from the very beginning that the DA rifle was a temporary solution. The military wanted to have a universal machine gun that could be mounted on turret positions, on aircraft wings and synchronized. During this period, new rifles meeting the specification had already begun to be designed. Due to the fact that both the DA and PV-1 machine guns have a similar rate of fire of approximately 600 shots/min. They wanted to replace them quickly.

However, compared to contemporary foreign models of aircraft machine guns, the rate of fire of which reached 700-900 rounds/min, the DA machine gun still looked weak. Therefore, in 1930, the twin-turret DA-2 entered service - its development based on the DA air machine gun was commissioned in 1927, when the DA had not yet entered service. A generic trigger hook was mounted on the pistol grip of the right machine gun in the additional trigger guard. Because the recoil of machine guns was very sensitive to the installation and the shooter, active muzzle brakes were installed on the machine guns. The muzzle brake had the shape of something like parachutes. Behind the muzzle brake there was a special shield that protected the shooter from the muzzle wave. Interestingly, DA and DA-2 were adopted by the Air Force Directorate without the consent of the authorities.

During the serial production of DA machine guns, which lasted until 1932, 12,914 - DA and 16,040 DA-2 were produced.

The already mentioned low rate of fire of 600 shots/min, inherited from the DP and magazine feed, did not allow the aviation version of the Degtyarev machine gun to be used as an offensive weapon. Of course, Degtyarev himself was fully aware that the issue of complete unification of weapons was not entirely acceptable in the case of aviation weapons.

Therefore, in the early 1930s, together with Georgy Semenovich Shpagin, he attempted to develop a deep modification of the machine gun, intended exclusively for aviation use.

In 1933, the experimental DAS (Degtyareva Aviatsionnyy Skorostrel'nyy) aviation machine gun was presented for testing, in which only the general principle of automation was retained. The design of the weapon has been significantly redesigned. Shpagin has developed a new system for loading loose metal tape. The rate of fire reached 1,200 shots/min, unlike previous models, a closed bolt firing scheme was used and a lever accelerator was introduced. Initially, the DAS machine gun was intended to serve not only as a turret, but also as a synchronous gun, and was equipped with a synchronized trigger mechanism. However, by the time the DAS machine gun appeared, the famous ShKAS had already been fully introduced into service, although it was heavier and more technologically complex, but with a rate of fire of 1,800 shots per minute, it was one and a half times better than the product of Degtyarev and Shpagin.

Degtyaryov DT-29

Degtyaryov DT - 7.62x54mm R

Developed together with G.S. Shpaginem in 1929, the 7.62 mm tank machine gun of the Degtyaryov system, model 1929. or DT-29 (Degtyarov Tankovyy 1929). In Soviet sources, this rifle was most often marked DT without a year mark. Was installed in most tanks and armored vehicles. The modification was created taking into account the installation of a machine gun in the tight fighting compartment of the tank. Instead of a wooden stock, a retractable metal one was installed. The standard single-row magazine was replaced with a three-row magazine holding 63 rounds. The machine gun was mounted on a ball mount developed by G.S. Shpagin, which made it possible to easily aim the machine gun in the horizontal and vertical planes. The machine gun was also equipped with a canvas shell catcher. The DT had a removable bipod, so it was used by crews of damaged armored vehicles as a light machine gun. The DT was also popular with airborne units due to its more compact size and lighter weight.

Degtyaryov DPM-44

Degtyaryov DPM - 7.62x54mm R

In 1944, under the leadership of Degtyarev, work was carried out at plant No. 2 on improving the DP machine gun, namely, increasing the reliability and controllability of the machine gun. The new modification received the designation 7.62 mm modernized light machine gun of the Degtyaryov system, model 1944. or DPM-44 (Degtyarov Pekhotnyy Modernizirovannyy 1944). In Soviet sources, this rifle was most often marked DPM without a year mark. The problem of overheating of the recoil spring was eliminated (it was mounted in a special tube in the trigger frame above the stock), the trigger mechanism was improved and it was possible to change the position of the barrel in the firing position. Moving the return spring to the trigger frame resulted in design changes in individual parts and mechanisms of the machine gun. A new pistol grip, a reshaped stock and a more stable integral bipod of a new design ensured greater comfort. In general, all combat, tactical and technical characteristics remained the same.

The DPM machine gun was not produced until 1945 and was soon replaced by the company's RP-46 machine gun, a belt-fed modification of the DPM.
