How can Russia respond to the appearance of highly mobile 155-mm self-propelled guns in the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The next package of Western military assistance to Ukraine contains not only a large number of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers, but also various powerful self-propelled guns and howitzers. It is not surprising, since the special operation at this, Donbass, stage has long turned into a positional war, where the main role belongs to large-caliber artillery. How can Russia respond to this?

Wheel self-propelled guns

As we have already noted in article about wheeled tanks, the realities of the SVO look like this: a tank or self-propelled artillery system (self-propelled artillery mount) leaves for a position, fires 1-2 shots, and then hastily hides so as not to become a victim of a counter-battery fight. It is also extremely problematic to assemble a powerful artillery battery somewhere in one place of the RF Armed Forces and continuously demolish enemy fortifications, since the Armed Forces of Ukraine, thanks to the NATO satellite constellation, all see from above and can hit such significant military targets with pinpoint strikes from the HIMARS MLRS.

For effective counter-battery combat in such conditions, a competent combination of constant aerial reconnaissance with the help of UAVs, reliable secure communications and highly mobile large-caliber artillery is required. The new military assistance package for the Armed Forces of Ukraine includes 19 French Caesar self-propelled guns, 26-30 Czech Dana-M2 self-propelled guns and 12 Swedish Archer self-propelled guns. The most dangerous for the RF Armed Forces are the Archers, which should be discussed in more detail.

It should be borne in mind that self-propelled howitzers on a wheeled chassis, as cheaper and highly mobile versions of tracked self-propelled guns, are used in many countries of the world. France has its own CAESAR 155-mm self-propelled guns, the Czech Republic has a 152-mm Dana self-propelled gun, Israel has a 155-mm ATMOS 2000 self-propelled gun, Serbia has a 155-mm NORA B-52 self-propelled howitzer, China has a 155-mm self-propelled artillery installation SH1, USA - self-propelled guns with a 155-mm gun M776 Brutus, in South Africa - self-propelled guns G6 "Rhino" with a caliber of 155 mm. One of the most advanced is the Swedish-made FH77 BW L52 "Archer" self-propelled guns, which in the amount of 12 units will soon fall into the hands of the Ukrainian military.

This self-propelled guns was developed by Stockholm to replace towed howitzers in order to increase the mobility and maneuverability of Swedish artillery units. The result was very impressive. The self-propelled gun was originally created to move through the most difficult terrain at speeds up to 70 km / h, for which the chassis of a Volvo A30D car with a 6x6 wheel arrangement, which has a 340 horsepower diesel engine, was used. The self-propelled guns are capable of moving on complete impassability and snow up to a meter deep, it is protected from an explosion when hitting a mine. The crew of the Archer is housed in an armored cockpit that provides ballistic protection and is equipped with a system of protection against weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological and nuclear), as well as a number of means to reduce visibility. The armor protects it from small arms fire and shell fragments.

Firing from the 155mm howitzer is fully automated. Loading, stowage and firing are carried out from inside the armored cabin, providing maximum protection to its crew at all times, which consists of the ACS commander, gun operator and driver. If necessary, even one person can fire. The installation's ammunition load is 21 rounds, and the firing range reaches 40 km with conventional 155-mm ammunition and up to 60 km with Excalibur-type high-precision guided munitions. Archer is able to shoot within 30 seconds after stopping the movement, and how long will it take him to resume it after completing the task.

As you can see, the Swedish self-propelled guns have very serious performance characteristics and can create a lot of problems for the RF Armed Forces, especially when using precision-guided munitions. How could our military-industrial complex respond to such a challenge?

Don't we need Russian "Coast"?

In our country, there are two promising self-propelled guns on a wheelbase, which can be considered competitors to the Swedish "Archer".

First - this is a 152-mm self-propelled gun 2S43 "Malva", built on the basis of the BAZ-6010-027 all-terrain vehicle chassis with an 8 × 8 wheel formula, a load capacity of up to 19,5 tons and a maximum speed of up to 80 km / h, which can be developed by a 470-horsepower engine. From the side, the self-propelled guns resemble the Bastion DBK, but its weapons are not anti-ship missiles, but the 152-mm 2A64 rifled howitzer, borrowed from the self-propelled guns 2S19 Msta-S. Ammunition is designed for 30 shots, which can be fired at a speed of 7 per minute. The maximum firing range of a conventional projectile is 24,5 km. The ACS calculation is represented by 5 crew members.

The main advantage of "Malva" over "Msta-S" is considered to be its lower weight, greater speed and maneuverability, as well as lower cost during production and subsequent operation. The disadvantages are also obvious: a qualitatively lower security of the crew compared to a tracked self-propelled guns. This wheeled howitzer is positioned not as a replacement, but as an addition to the Msta-S.

The second - This is a wheeled version of the tracked self-propelled guns 2S35 "Coalition-SV" called 2S35-1 "Coalition-SV-KSh". The Coalition-SV was created on the basis of the T-90 tank and is capable of firing 152-mm projectiles at a speed of 10 to 16 rounds per minute at a maximum distance of 70-80 km with high-precision projectiles and up to 40 km with conventional ones. In the wheeled version, the gun is mounted on a reinforced KAMAZ-6560 truck chassis. The fighting compartment is uninhabited, the crew is accommodated in an armored cabin. The ACS deployment time is 1,5 minutes. On the basis of "Coalition-SV-KSh" it is planned to create an artillery complex for the Coast Guard of the Russian Navy.

Such promising self-propelled guns will be able to compete with Western models of artillery, which are increasingly falling into the hands of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, our fleet is armed with such large-caliber artillery mounts that could help the Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces to crush enemy positions right now.

Self-propelled coastal 130 mm artillery complex A-222 "Bereg" was developed in the USSR to destroy surface ships of small and medium displacement with speed characteristics up to 100 knots, with a detection radius of up to 35 kilometers and a range of up to 22 kilometers. He was supposed to act in conjunction with coastal missile systems, which have their own "blind" zones. The complex can operate both on sea and on land targets.

MAK "Bereg" uses the ship's gun mount AK-130, also known as "ZIF-94", and some elements from the 152 mm self-propelled howitzer type 2S-19 "Msta". The crew consists of six people: commander, gunner and four loaders. The BR-136 fire control system with optoelectronic and radar channels for detecting and conducting detected targets allows you to track up to 4 targets, provide firing with any self-propelled guns at 2 objects, after firing at one of the targets, instantly organize firing at the next accompanied by an object, both single shots and a burst of 4 to 12 shots per minute. Such a good mobile tool for artillery suppression of enemy positions.

    It is wrong to respond with the same means to the enemy, this leads to parity of fire (or worse, because it is less precise) and to large losses. Use other, more effective means, here the first is loitering ammunition of the Lancet type. With them, it will be faster and less expensive to destroy all self-propelled guns. The whole question is the development of sufficiently lethal (Lancet-5 warhead is too weak) and MASS production and supply to the troops. This is the first thing that needs to be done today, especially before the arrival of new batches of high-precision weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We already have enough reconnaissance UAVs (together, both Chinese civilians and part of the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation), the transition to attack UAVs has long been overripe, we need to catch up quickly. Through blood and losses, it reaches the brains and orders from responsible officials of the RF Ministry of Defense for the necessary weapons, it’s not time to toughen demand and rotation for such blunders, because such failures are systemic.

He obscenely spoke about "couch experts", and then said: T-72b3 (modification 2016) and T-90m, one of the most advanced tanks in the world, but there are few of them. Obsolete cars and outright rubbish prevail, such as the T-64.

          (TYPE 2) Each weapon has its own niche and application. That's the point. Even the old T-64s are very usable. Here the main application depends on the competence of commanders and officers. Over time and losses, there are more and more good "run-in" officers. Russia has not lost wars for its vital interests; in Ukraine, vital interests are clearly present in many respects.

          I also noticed that there is some kind of hatred towards the "sofa" experts! Sofa experts do not cause any material and patriotic damage to the country. The fact that 99% are not technically aware is not their fault, but the lack of specialists on the forums. and not the desire of couch experts to surf the Internet and read articles about our tanks. But this takes a lot of time. I haven’t read more than one serviceman in military equipment or working at a military enterprise out of 100 comments. They are practically absent everywhere. It is necessary to somehow distinguish couch "experts" from hired bots by the site owner. Hired bots have the text like a cape! They do not criticize, but praise! There is no analysis of what is happening. Bots always lead to another topic. They praise the story, vilify the aponents in the comments. They do not at least do some kind of investigation. How many critical articles from amateur specialists were about saving on DZ, about the lack of protection from the machine gunner on the turret, and many others from 2016. And only at the end of 22 they began to install DZ in all places of the T-72 BM3, and not only this one DZ, and much more began to be installed. Almost all information about the T-72 and T-90 tanks can be found on the wiki! As well as many articles on the modernization of these tanks,

        You can't fight and steal at the same time

        Rostec does not want to sell shells for $1000 when shells can be sold for $50000 each. Even if this is a revolution in artillery, even if it would reduce our losses tenfold, and increase the losses of the enemy by the same amount. How to cut money if the Ministry of Defense orders not 50-100 times more cheap high-precision projectiles. There are analogues of the M1156 PGK - a module from the Compass Design Bureau, developed as part of the Dynamics theme - noticeably cheaper than the Krasnopol, and intended to refine conventional artillery shells. These tips cost $1000 in 2011. This is nothing for precision weapons. And today they are even cheaper, because technology develops. Expensive and rare components in 2011 become cheap and common in 2021. The tests took place more than ten years ago, which is still unknown with serial production. fuse. It includes a combined fuse, a GLONASS signal receiver and control surfaces - aerodynamic rudders that unfold in flight and correct the trajectory of the projectile.
        None of the authors asks the question, What is Compass doing now? why no new developments?

        MKB "KOMPAS" is no more than 5 years old, and there were problems in the company a few years before that.

        MKB KOMPAS was located in the center of Moscow, a few years ago Compass was taken over by another enterprise with a not the closest profile, and the remnants of the employees were transferred to an industrial zone on the outskirts of Moscow (the production of Compass is also located there). Only the legal address remained in the center.

        Accordingly, during these events, a lot of employees involved in navigation were lost.

        I think it’s worth not only writing that “all the polymers have been pissed off”, i.e. a tip from Compass, but rather lost the team who developed it and could bring it to the desired characteristics.

        And another interesting moment - at the time of the development of this tip, the company was actually private, not state

    One gets the feeling that the Defense Ministry wants to substitute the skins of its soldiers, the civilian population for all the latest Western weapons. It is no secret that the leadership of North Korea promised, at the slightest twitch of the United States, to provide a nuclear response. So what? The US shut up and does not protrude in their direction. But in Russia? THE ARCHERS ARE GOING!!!! And what are the panic assurances of the entire top that Russia will never use nuclear weapons. What is the risk of the West throwing off all the weapons on the heads of the Russians???
    And who will believe that the leadership of the Russian Federation does not follow vile manuals (from letter to letter)? It's just that Biden, through his secretaries, gave the order and the fellows are ruining our boys, for the sake of testing the Western military-industrial complex. There can be no victory, conventional weapons and human resources of a plundered Russia, against the resources of the industrial West, without a nuclear response.

        Now let's look differently. In an endless war, with the unfolding military-industrial complex of the West, the entire male population of Russia, from young to old, is gradually knocked out, and if there are supplies of long-range weapons, then the entire population of Russia will know the fate of Donetsk. Roosevelt and Churchill proposed, after the victory over Germany, that all Germans, males, be castrated and women sanitized (for brothels), only Stalin was against it. If we assume that it is completely exhausted, Russia will be forced to capitulate - will there be another "Stalin" there? At the same time, the main organizers will be unharmed (they will only grow fat from unprecedented profits). What conventional weapon will you get them? Only frank fear, before imminent death, kept the world after the 2nd World War. Now our bosses are hysterically proving that there will be no use of nuclear weapons (only as a response).

    Good Europeans supply (in the future) their prodigies in drop dead quantities from 12 to 30.
    Caesars from France on 24.02.2022 there were already 76 pieces. 18 delivered to Ukraine. Run out. We have 58 left. We asked the manufacturer to restore the number. The firm replied "Yeah, sure, within 4 - 5 years". The French decided to send another 19. How many will remain? That's right, 39.
    Super dangerous archer. Sweden has 48 of them. They decided to give a quarter to Ukraine. Why? In figs, nobody needs them.
    The Norwegians wanted to buy 24 pieces. Not a single supply. In 2013 the order was cancelled.
    Croatia wanted to replace the old Soviet Acacias with Archers. As a result, it was replaced by German PzH 2000. Normal vehicles like Msta S. Tracked, turret, with circular guidance (which wheeled vehicles do not have). Yes, with its shortcomings, but it can be compared with Msta-S.
    Germany has PzH 2000 on 24.2022. - 120 pieces.
    Russia has self-propelled guns Msta-S at the beginning of 2021. - more than 850 pieces. 850, Carl! As they say, feel the difference.
    Tracked vehicles, with circular guidance, BK 45 - 50 shots (for wheeled vehicles 21-30). The crew is in a spacious cabin, protected from bullets, shrapnel, rain and wind.
    Why do we need this wheel exotic in Ukraine? In Syria, maybe.
    There is another word that the author does not seem to have heard. Or does not understand its meaning.
    These are infrastructure, support and management groups, spare parts, repairs, specialists, etc. How will it be provided? Where?
    I really want absolutely all the wheeled self-propelled guns listed by the author to be delivered to Ukraine. Then those people in the Armed Forces of Ukraine who are engaged in the rear will either desert or shoot themselves.
    About the price.
    In figs, how much do self-propelled guns Msta-S cost. We have them in stock. 850 pieces. But not only Msta-S, but also the old Hyacinth-S.
    Yes, he is also with an open gun, but on tracks. And there are 950 of them. 100 in troops, 850 in storage.
    This is a 152mm caliber.
    And there is also a veteran Acacia self-propelled guns. Yes, caliber 122 mm. But also not bad. And she tower and caterpillar.
    There are 1 of them. 800 in the troops, 800 in storage.
    Spent and time-tested machines. Them lot. Designed primarily for our conditions. They have everything.
    So why look for adventure on your ass? Few problems in SVO? Or is there nothing to write about?

      All this is already yesterday, it is necessary to establish large-scale production of self-propelled guns "Coalition SV" as soon as possible, at the moment only it is in no way inferior to the best Western artillery systems, and in some parameters it significantly surpasses them.

      Well, let's just say it's not all there. The proof of this is the fields pitted with funnels around the objects to be destroyed. Guidance systems, artillery fire control, for modern warfare, are outdated. Starting with UAVs, ending with communications with space intelligence. Even the Tsar Cannon can become the most accurate weapon if it is provided with the appropriate ammunition and high-precision fire control equipment. Well, the most painful thing, at all times, in Russia is communication, practically at all levels.

      850 pieces???
      You personally inspected, saw all these 850 pieces. ??
      It’s time to get used to the fact that on paper it’s one thing, but in fact it can easily be different.
      And then, even if their number is actually 850 pieces, then on the scale of the stretch and length of the borders of the Russian Federation, these 850 pieces. - a drop in the sea!!!

    By turning off NATO satellites, all this equipment will become a pile of metal in a short time, and if strategic bridges with railway nodes are destroyed, the equipment will not even reach the front line. But neither side seems to need it.

      Hymers is more of a nightmare for civilian objects! where there are no beeches and shells. The more beeches will be released for your own, the less hymers will be a nightmare. The same will apply to UAVs. We need a separate special anti-tank missile platoon so that they would be engaged in the destruction of exclusively armored vehicles and those who sit in shelters, in buildings

    Analogues are analogues, but these analogues are not available in the Russian army in the required quantity. Instead of sawing them out, the bunker with Kotyrili the stolen loot on egg capsules and offshore.
    The NATO satellite constellation - where is yours, and why has it not been created in 20 years ... ah, the "second army" ??!!

      But because everything was commercialized for volatility and profit from exports! All areas were used to launch foreign satellites, as well as the production of satellites under contracts with other countries. All for the sake of dough Getting profits below 200% for our elites is not profitable inside the country
      If the dollar exchange rate was 1 80, then what profit did the officials of Roscosmos have! How much did an foreign tourist fly into space? So they wanted to transport the entire space for space tourism! etc
      Karl Marx in Capital:

      Give capital a 10% profit and capital is ready for any use, at 20% it becomes lively, at 50% it is positively ready to break its head, at 100% it defies all human laws, at 300% there is no crime that it does not risk to go, at least under pain of the gallows

    the firing range reaches 40 km with conventional 155-mm ammunition and up to 60 km with Excalibur-type high-precision guided munitions.

    keep in mind that in addition to Excalibur, they also have a "nozzle" for precise targeting of conventional shells ...
    and given that the barrel length is 52 (8060 mm) calibers, then the projectile will fly just the same 50-60 km ...

    How can Russia respond?

    nothing ...
    we don’t have anything accurate and long-range ...
    some samples and projectors - not in mass production and in the troops
    a projectile with a range of 70 km for the Coalition was never brought to series ...
    but even if it were, given the stone age of our air and space intelligence, there is nothing to compete with the enemy ...
    everything that appears in the range of their artillery will be attacked much earlier ...

    For the APU-techies, these problems with logistics are DEEP TO THE BULB. the base is stupidly exported for major repairs abroad.
    About acacias, hyacinth and other barrel artillery, I’ll say it like an artillery gunner: from the point of view of modern systems, this is not even yesterday, but the day before yesterday and yesterday’s MSTA (and its main problem is not weak, by modern standards, shooting capabilities, but others), and from the point of view of a techie - RAVist - this is already almost quiet horror, especially with the fact that in long-term storage warehouses. And there, basically, with a condition of 25%, the maximum gun is good. With such an intensity of fire with this type of bd, barrel wear is colossal .
    It would be most correct to develop the Coalition complex. But this is not only self-propelled guns, but also ammunition for it, and this is not Krasnopol (whoever encountered them knows perfectly well what it is about and about problems, restrictions on its use, including), which is complete bullshit and does not stand next to modern Western models.
    And it mainly performs combat tasks of artillery of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation due to the greater mass character of the trunks, literally falling asleep everything and everything - maybe something will fall somewhere.

    MAK "Bereg" uses the ship's gun mount AK-130, it is also "ZIF-94", and some elements from the 152 mm howitzer self-propelled type 2S-19 "Msta"

    this is for just ignorant bust! This author often does this.
