The most powerful Russian self-propelled guns "Pion" headed for the West


In the context of the pulling of weapons to the eastern borders of NATO, Russia is taking similar actions, defending its own borders. So, in social networks there are videos showing Russian self-propelled artillery units "Pion", moving along the railroad towards the West.


It is the most powerful self-propelled artillery weapon in the arsenal of the Russian army. The self-propelled gun barrel caliber is an impressive 203 mm.


However, Russia has the right to move its own weapons across its territory and not ask permission from other countries for this. Meanwhile, the North Atlantic Alliance, accusing Moscow of wanting to occupy Ukraine, as well as unleashing a migration crisis on the border between Poland and Belarus, is deploying armored vehicles to the east.

Thus, 155-mm NATO self-propelled guns Zuzana 2 moved from Poland to Latvia on their own. Eyewitnesses also report unloading of American M109A7 Paladin artillery mounts in Poland. All these weapons are supposed to be pulled to the Polish-Belarusian border under the pretext of resolving the migration crisis.

Meanwhile, commenting on NATO's accusations against Russia of provoking the conflict, the Russian Ministry of Defense draws attention to an increase in the activity of the Western bloc in the Black Sea. According to the military department of the Russian Federation, the alliance is trying to create a powerful grouping near the borders with Russia, the goal of which is the military development of Ukraine.

    Russian Railways will make good money on transporting these Peonies back and forth.
    In modern warfare, positional defense is a conditional thing. As far as I remember, at the end of the 80s, they paid attention to the concept of a support zone in every possible way, both in the offensive and on the defensive. In such cases, the range will not be enough to reach the field fortifications, and not that worthy targets for 203 mm (you need a high-explosive action from above). Well, except that the caves in the mountains to destroy.
    Special ammunition has long been no problem in 152 mm. Cassette - for reactive workers are an order of magnitude more effective.

    Moving the gun mounts, from both sides, is nothing more than a demonstration, they demonstrate, we answer. Neither command and control vehicles, nor support and supply vehicles, etc. are visible. And even more ammunition, I remember in the PChK, only one of the GRAU depots was sent daily in a train with artillery ammunition and this was for a counter-terrorist operation of medium intensity.
    And Malky, (and not Peonies, to be more precise) with their accuracy and rate of fire, are just more suitable for demonstration with their outwardly frightening appearance.
  3. The caliber is small! You need at least 250 mm!

      The rear will not be able to ensure the delivery of such shells within an acceptable time frame.

    Already in every response of the Kremlin, this phrase sounds like an incantation - "However, Russia has the right to move its own weapons across its territory and not ask permission from other countries." But as the neighbors do, howling in the Kremlin. By the way, Ukraine also has every right to carry out special operations on its land, and "kill in the outhouse" bandits on its own land.

    Something they can't get wet ... They are only capable of dastardly shelling of civilians. Ukrainians are so Ukrainians. Only from under the tishka, well, or a boiler as an option.
