    2С4 Tulip "- 240-mm self-propelled mortar developed by the Ural enterprise" Transmash "in Yekaterinburg.
    Is it new or removed from conservation?

      "Flower" from storage. The 2C4 self-propelled mortar is the only mortar in the world of this caliber.

        For this mortar, new actively reactive mines must be created, with a firing range of 30 kilometers.

    A tulip would be modernized and made up to date from modern materials with a computer for calculating amendments. With such ammunition and increased accuracy - a fairy tale is simple

      Yeah, to swell a bunch of headstock for development and refinement, despite the fact that this one, almost for free, puts mines weighing 2 pounds of explosives with firing accuracy - plus or minus five meters. To support the infantry in Syria, just the very thing. 2С4 "Tulip" is intended for the destruction of fortified buildings, fortifications, accumulations of manpower and armored vehicles of the enemy, as well as the destruction of objects and targets, the destruction of which is not available to other artillery guns.

      The main ammunition of the 2B8 mortar includes high-explosive mines 53-F-864 with a maximum firing range of 9,65 km, as well as 3F2 active-reactive mines with a maximum firing range of 19,69 km. In 1982, the armament was adopted 2C4 adjustable shell "Daredevil". In addition, for the 240-mm M-240 and 2C4 mortars, the following were developed: Sayda incendiary mines equipped with napalm and forming stable ignition centers on an area of ​​7850 m² around the center of the shell rupture, Nerpa cluster mines equipped with 3OF16 high-explosive fragmentation warheads , nuclear shells with a capacity of 2 kilotons in the usual and active-reactive version, as well as neutron shells "Resin" and "Fata". The maximum rate of fire at an elevation angle of 60 ° and the average position of the barrel - 1 shot in 62 seconds

        That's just the price of this "almost free" is very high. And the "Daredevils", which riveted under the USSR, are already ending.
        And when shooting with conventional accuracy is not very high. Plus a very low rate of fire.

        And what a lot of money to swell? There is a chassis (unless a new diesel is to be supplied), the same system for all artillery systems is the same, the trunk on modern machines and modern alloys can be done ... this is an upgrade rather. And in terms of power and accuracy, practically replacing aviation (taking into account the use of UAVs)

      Well, it’s very interesting - on which section of the “front” will this incredible power be concentrated? Who will fall under the "distribution of goodies"?

      And not only them. Also in the troops come self-propelled guns 2s7 "Peony" and 2s7m "Malka", 203 mm. There is also a "tricky" ammunition. yes

    Interestingly, ammunition for the "Tulip" still produce?
    Or units can be created to shoot the remaining ammunition and write off.
    Because it is clear that such things are now very vulnerable.

    If you perform the same, but on a larger scale, on a modern technological base and caliber, take that way under 300 mm with ammunition under 350 kg of RDX and break in on barmaley. recourse
    The stink of truth will rise about the "inhuman Russians." Although, on the other hand, are we not for us to cry for them?
    The main thing that the benefit was. yes

      Too much. Better do it in Iran. Take a 160 mm mortar and reduce barrel length to increase mobility

    It's time to test this product for its intended purpose. A 240 mm mine with one hit will unfold the dugout or roadblock, leaving no chance for the enemy to survive. 2C4 in combination with special ammunition can very quickly destroy a hostile fauna in a given square.

        What's so terrible? An active nuclear missile flies 18 km, which completely eliminates any risk to the crew. When fired at 9 km, only radioactive fallout is a danger, so the direction and speed of the wind must be taken into account. An explosion of 2 kt will destroy the enemy infantry within a radius of about 1,5 km, but the force of the explosion decreases in proportion to the cube of the distance from it, so at a distance of 6 km the excess pressure will drop 64 times.

      The maximum range of firing of HE by a mine on a “special” charge is 9700 meters. Scary nuclear ... 8)))

    The experience of the application was in the first Chechen. When from the old panel five-story houses made firing points. One shot of the “Daredevil” from a tulip piled the house with a voluminous detonation of ammunition from the basement.
