The current method of cleaning the barrel consists of several people with a steel brush at the end of a long pole which is manuallyinserted down the barrel repeatedly. Due to the linear movement of this manual method perfect cleaning could never be achievedespecially against the tilted formation inside the rifled barrels. Even this way does damage to barrel severely.
Many factors could influencethe quality of cleaning such as the available manpower and time constraints which will result in reduced accuracy and lifewhile increasing the risk for misfiring and explosions. Manual cleaning is also difficult to perform in environments such as practice, NBC, radioactive, night combat and heavy activity areas which could affect the performance of the barrel as proper cleaning is essentialto ensure the perfect working conditions.
The automatic bore cleaner from Soosung Defense Industries is the answer to these problems.
