Remotely controlled artillery in Syria

As part of the Syrian troops, a remote-controlled installation, mounted on an armored reconnaissance vehicle, was observed, it is a system, the basis of which is a twin 23-mm gun ZU-23-2, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


Remotely controlled artillery in Syria


This gun is used by the Syrians from the very beginning of the war. It was installed on the BMP and on cars of various types.

“Zushka” has rather high characteristics. The rate of fire is up to 2000 shots per minute. The range of destruction of targets - up to 2,5 km. The weight of the projectile is 190 grams, ”notes the author of the article, Lev Romanov.

Its main drawback was the open location of the calculation, not protected from bullets and fragments.



“Syrian craftsmen (perhaps with the help of foreign advisers) solved this problem by introducing elements of robotization. The result was the original remote-controlled combat module. The gunner, being behind the armor, carries out search and aiming with the help of a video camera, ”the author writes.

Another innovation - armored and more spacious boxes with ammunition.



So far, these modules are being mounted only on upgraded armored reconnaissance vehicles, however, it is possible that they will soon appear on other models of equipment.

      Definitely! By the way, a good option to upgrade old equipment turned out! It’s interesting, but our design bureaus of the memory option ZU 23-2 were considered at all ?!

        The location of the installation on the roof of the BRDM is, in my opinion, much more successful than in the back of a Toyota. So it has a circular sector of fire, the crew is located below and behind the armor. You can park the car so that the hull is hidden (behind ruins, in a trench, etc.), and only the trunks are visible.

          In fact, all this is not quite as effective as described.

          I’ll explain it simply.

          The installation is very high. This creates a long lever to apply recoil force after a shot as applied to the equipment chassis.

          Installation can shoot only in short bursts or single shots. Since it will swing greatly.

          At large distances, such swaying will lead to visual loss of the target. Since optics, the larger the zoom, the smaller the field of view. Plus buildup.

          In short, better than nothing.

          Although it may be for another reason. Worse than before.

          The safety of soldiers is primarily achieved by the correct tactical use of weapons.

      There is an excuse, right below the article rating is written:
      Opinion editorial "Military Review" may not coincide with the point of view of the authors of publications
      And editing it will already be a copyright violation wassat
      I wonder how it is induced, because there must be synchronized drives, and this is harder than attaching a camera.

      By the way, very similar. In the forehead, cases, even if it is not he, the Syrians fellows.
      In Iran, too, they have long been making a ZU-23-2 with remote control for installation on the BTR-60 and also installing it on various chassis in a variant with the calculation, but this is more likely because they simply can not yet make a normal remote-controlled module with a gun.

        The Syrians didn't have to do anything special - they took it off the gun carriage and put it in a "mess". Well, the boxes were increased because reloading in battle is a problem.
        The device itself initially has remote control and an automated guidance system with a thermal imager and a laser range finder.

          Clearly lucky the Syrians. Although they have recently begun to intensively upgrade something specifically the BRDM recently flashed their photos from the AGS-17 and in the grilles.

          In general, the modernized BRDM first "surfaced" here at the Palestinian militia Al-Quds.

          The Iranians themselves remade the ZU-23-2 into remotely controlled ones.

    Interesting business. Please note that on all the equipment are not artisanal, but factory anti-cumulative gratings. :) And this can not but rejoice.
    And about the memory ... here it is. The installation is cheap and efficient, and its robotization takes it to a different price niche in terms of the economics of war. For Syria, this is a great option to increase current technical specifications, but this option is more out of need and, unfortunately, is unlikely to be massive due to additional costs. Although the option is very good in terms of protecting fighters and the effectiveness of defensive combat. He stuck out a sting and a dolby without the risk of being shot down by a cunning spirit with SVD.

      The next ceasefire between the Hussites and Saudi Arabia was to begin on the eve of Yemen, however, both sides continue to wage war both on the battlefield and on television screens. So, in one of the latest propaganda videos, the operator captured a somewhat unusual technique for the 34st century - the Soviet tank of the Great Patriotic War T-XNUMX ....

          Apparently the tank is very old and they are just afraid that the gun might break and therefore they are afraid in the tower.

            Then it is more likely that the shells are "well-deserved". If the barrel just breaks, then it will be worse just for the one outside, and if the shell in the breech explodes, then the one inside.

              Well, so I meant the gun completely and not the gun barrel.
              Although what's the difference. By the way, shells for our 85-mm guns were made, and probably they are also made by the PRC and DPRK, they are armed with light tanks.
