"Msta-B" with accurate "Krasnopol" in Crimea will repel any landing operation


Towed 152-mm howitzers 2A65 "Msta-B" entered service with the 8th separate artillery regiment, stationed in Simferopol. They are supplied with laser-guided artillery ammunition "Krasnopol" and drones "Orlan-30", which carry out target designation. Now the defense of Crimea will become even more reliable, the newspaper writes "News", referring to his sources in the Russian Ministry of Defense.


A bunch of Msta-B, Krasnopol and Orlan-30 UAVs have proven their effectiveness in Syria in destroying militants. Now the Crimean artillerymen are mastering their use.

Guided missiles "Krasnopol" have a firing range of up to 25 km, and the use of UAVs makes it possible to deliver accurate strikes not only against ground targets, but also to reflect the landing operations of the alleged enemy, causing damage to his ships. In addition, the regiment received new KamAZ-63501AT armored multi-axle tractors for towing howitzers. This made it possible to increase the mobility and efficiency of artillery in the Crimea.

Military expert Dmitry Boltenkov explained to Izvestia that earlier there was a need to have a gunner near the target, which is not always possible, and it was practically impossible to “light up” the ship when it is far from the coast in principle. Now one "Krasnopol" can do what is difficult to achieve by releasing even dozens of conventional unguided ammunition.

We remind you that the 8th separate artillery regiment (military unit 87714) was formed on November 19, 2014. It was headed by Colonel Dmitry Kozachenko, former commander of the 406th Separate Brigade Artillery Group of Coastal Defense Forces of the Ukrainian Navy. Most of the gunners also expressed a desire to serve Russia. Currently, the regiment is part of the 22nd Army Corps of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

    "Msta-B" with accurate "Krasnopol" in Crimea will repel any landing operation

    -Absolute day before yesterday ... -this towed howitzer ... -And all the same 152 mm caliber ... -Low budget option ... -Yes, and it shoots at a not very long distance ... -even and "Krasnopol "... -The combat crew of the gun is completely unprotected ... -in the open air ... -The battery of these howitzers, while firing ... they can very easily detect a cheap UAV and very accurately report its coordinates ...
    -Well., At least its charging chamber and a barrel under the NATO caliber (155 mm) ... would have done; so that you can shoot with trophy shells ... -Yes, and if you export it ... -that only with this caliber ...- 155 mm ...
    -I hope ... -that it is at least not smooth-bore ... - and then recently one specialist in one topic was right behind the "smooth-bore" ...
    -This howitzer was late to be born ... about 60 years of commercials ... -That's when it just would come in handy ...

      To shoot "Krasnopol" further, just a "smoothbore" will not interfere, but a guided projectile does not care which barrel to fly from ... As for "detecting a cheap UAV": the tactics of using such artillery does not allow finding a position. They drove up, deployed the guns even from an open, even from a closed position, fired a shot - and drove off ...,. everything will take a few minutes. Maybe even the projectiles will not have time to reach the target (at an average projectile speed of 250-300 m / s at a distance of 15-20 km, 1-2 minutes will pass), and the cannons are already being towed away from the firing site. The coast of the peninsula stretches for hundreds of kilometers, the self-propelled guns will not be enough for everything, and so cheap and cheerful! Equipping a concealed position for a towed howitzer is easier than for an SPG. You don't have to carry howitzers everywhere, but, for example, equip several positions with guns in a threatened area, and bring only the calculation of the gun to the position ... But you never know how to protect the coast! As for the NATO caliber 155 mm: the unit was created to defend its own coastline, it is called to fight on its own land, and the use of trophies is not expected. For export, the weapons that the buyer chooses are supplied - maybe NATO members will need to switch to 152 mm, and not vice versa?

        To shoot "Krasnopol" further just "smoothbore" and does not hurt,

        -Is that you put a minus to me ???

        Maybe even the projectiles will not have time to reach the target (at an average projectile speed of 250 - 300 m / s at a distance of 15 - 20 km it will take 1 - 2 minutes), and the cannons are already being towed from the place of firing.

        -This cons, you can at least a hundred pieces, without thinking ... -Palat at least ten seconds ...
        - But personally to you ... personally, I advise for "1 - 2 minutes" to "roll up" all the guns and towed with them from the place of firing "... - even in slush and rain; and even in a severe frost, and even in the wind ... - on a good journey ...
        - Personally, I am very delighted with the heroic actions of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers ... -what difficulties they had to overcome at the front and what heroism to show ...
        -And today there is already an opportunity ... - to create more benign conditions for a simple soldier ...

          I don't play "+ -" games - the age is not the same! The standard for calculating such a howitzer to leave the position is 2.5 minutes. With a good workout, you can keep within 2.

          Personally, I am very delighted with the heroic actions of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers ... - what difficulties they had to overcome at the front and what heroism to show ...

          So my father told me how in the Second World War, after the evacuation from near Odessa, he was tasked with protecting the Crimean coast from possible enemy landings. For this, the old guns were allocated - with wooden wheels from the WWII times from some warehouses: they left their modern ones when they retreated from the state. borders and from outside Odessa. When Manstein's tank group broke through the front at Perekop, an order was received to urgently move with guns to the steppe part of the peninsula to tank-hazardous directions. The shells for the battle were only high-explosive fragmentation. As Daddy said: "it seemed like they hit the tank, smoke, sparks in all directions, everything seemed to be knocked out, but he (the tank) moves on!" When the armor-piercing shells were brought up, Hitler's tanks were already moving through the streets of the village, on the outskirts of which a battle began. To bring shells to the cannons, it was necessary to run across the street under the fire of enemy tank machine guns ... It was then that my father was wounded for the first time in this war. First blood in the battles for the Crimea - there he settled after the war, there he lived and was buried ...

            - Everything ... - enough already ...
            - Our great-grandfather was lucky only in that they fired from rifled barrels of guns .. - And only mortars were smooth-bore ...
            -Today, artillery simply does not have to be in the open ... -in rain and snow ...
            -That was (is) an excellent howitzer D-30 (with a rifled 122 mm barrel); which could (and can) shoot 360 degrees around itself (it can turn like this on its gun carriage) ... - So this D-30 has already been removed from service ... - In my opinion ... - absolutely in vain .. -And this "newest towed howitzer 152-mm 2A65" Msta-B "" ... does not even have such a sector of firing ... -Who will be constantly fiddling with its frames ??? - After all, you will have to manually install the bed and move it back and forth ... -We already do not have enough soldiers ... -and there is a calculation ... -8 people ...
            -Everything ... -and I don't want to hear anything else ... -My opinion (IMHO) is this ... -it's a tool ... -just yesterday ...

              You are overreacting somehow. There is no - and cannot be - TRUTH in the first instance in the comments. By exchanging views, you can learn something new that you did not even know about. Discontinued - that means there were reasons for that. You can try to find out the details about this, and then you will want to "hear" something else, and so on. Nothing is removed from service and production just like that!

              this "newest towed howitzer 152-mm 2A65" Msta-B ""

              Research and development work on the creation of a towed 152-mm howitzer "Msta-B" began in 1976. ... In 1986, the 152-mm howitzer "Msta-B" was adopted by the Ground Forces of the USSR Armed Forces.

                -No well:

                Towed 152-mm howitzers 2A65 "Msta-B" entered service with the 8th separate artillery regiment, stationed in Simferopol.

                -This is how to understand ??? - They were that ... - dragged back (like T-34 tanks) from Vietnam, Laos, Kampuchea; so that they went to the troops here ??? - Is that so ???
                - Nonsense ...

                  What's confusing? These howitzers have been in service for a long time. Wonderful guided missiles "Krasnopol" for them have been created. With laser illumination of a sea target (using UAVs, in particular), the gun becomes a convenient means of high-precision firing of coastal defense forces. Was created (or re-equipped) "8th separate artillery regiment" with such weapons. Everything ! Where is the nonsense?

                    -It's nonsense that ... is only in A.S. Pushkin:

                    - "The cannons are firing from the shore ... -the ship is ordered to dock"

                    With laser illumination of a sea target (using UAVs, in particular), the weapon becomes a convenient means of high-precision firing of coastal defense forces.

                    - Maybe these guns will also adapt to shoot at submarines ???
                    - Here they will watch for ... - when the submarines appear a little out of the water ... - so immediately they will start shooting at them ... - Hahah ...

        Already in the Russo-Japanese War, artillery did not fire from open positions.

        About "spotting a cheap UAV"

        The Americans began using low-orbit satellites for these purposes (something like those that Musk launches). Testing at the test site began today. They promise 20 seconds from target detection to shot.
