The textbook "Armament and equipment" is the second amended edition of the primary textbook "Armament and equipment", published in 2016. The authors, following the development of the means and equipment in the area treated by the textbook, offered knowledge in the form of supplements in the field of ammunition, non-lethal weapons and knowledge about the equipment that has been used in the last five years, but also equipment that would be used in the next period. The changes and amendements are in the scope and criteria determineted for a new edition.
The publication is an expected outcome of the authors raising from the experiences with the first edition of the textbook as well as from the many years of teaching at the first cycle of studies at the Faculty of Security in Skopje, as an unit of the St. Kliment Ohridski University from Bitola. This textbook is useful as a primary textbook for the discipline that holds the identical name “Weapons and Equipment” – part of the first study cycle at the Faculty of Security in Skopje, but it can also be used at any related faculties, dealing with the same or similar topic. Furthermore, it can be used as technical assistance at the Ministry of Interior as well as the Army of Republic of North Macedonia. Finally, its use extends to the people who deal with forensics, included in this textbook’s scope.
The material is presented in six parts. The first part deals with the terminology connected with internal ballistics, as a science that tries to explain the process of projectile movement within the barrel of a weapon. The second part dwells deeper into the introduction to ammunition and propellant (powder) as one of the elements of internal ballistics, as well as other explosive materials.
In the third section of the textbook different examples of weapons, used by the police force are discussed – in accordance with small arms’ classifications. The different types of weapons discussed here are: guns, automated weapons, semi-automatic rifles, automatic rifles, machine guns, different rocket launchers and mortars, as well as the non-leathal weapons.
The fourth part focuses on ballistic protection equipment, more specifically – hard and soft ballistic protection. The last (fifth) part deals with the most common special and multi-use equipment and devices, used during the daily activities of the police force, within the legal framework.
We would like to thank the reviewers, prof. d-r Stojce Deskovski and prof. d-r Jovan Naumoski for their invaluable help during the creation of this textbook. Also, M.Sc. Toni Trajkovski offered much needed help, along with the rest of the team.
Any comments and suggestions regarding the topics discussed in this textbook (adjusted to the applicable study programme) are welcomed. Any such improvement will be implemented in the next edition of this or any similar textbook.
