    The information is not fully disclosed, one moment is missing, namely:
    The Ural Transport Engineering Plant modernized a batch of 240-mm Tulip mortars capable of firing nuclear mines.
    After modernization, mortars received new communication, aiming and navigation systems. The exact number of upgraded mortars is not reported - this is a military secret.
    The 2C4 Tulip is a Soviet 240-mm self-propelled artillery mortar of the reserve of the Supreme High Command. "Tulips" established themselves during the war in Afghanistan, where their high-explosive mines easily destroyed adobe fortifications and fortresses of the enemy. In addition to conventional, the 2S4 ammunition includes 2 kiloton nuclear shells, Sayda incendiary mines with napalm, as well as Smola and Fata neutron shells.

          Exactly drinks Moreover, unlike aviation, navy and missiles, it’s very budget-friendly to use, however, 2 kilotons is not a trifle and repeated volleys are not forbidden according to the rate of fire laughing

      If they still stayed.
      “Tulip” is a niche thing, sharpened to support an attack on a defense that is technologically powerful. Well, or for fighting in settlements.
      And for vigorous enough and 152 caliber

        Remained, they did not fall under reductions and lay calmly in the warehouses of the army reserve, the shelf life was 50 years, then the regulations and another 20 years, I saw how this flower from 1 mine (high explosive) folded 3 entrances from 4 in a five-story building at the training ground.

          For this mortar you need a new guided rocket mine, with a firing range of 40 kilometers.

        I would not say ... Sometimes the "conditions of the game" change dramatically. The counter-battery has made a leap in recent decades, comparable to the transition to firing with closed OP.
        "Tulip" - for the spread of insurgency of all kinds. For a normal war, he has too low mobility and rate of fire. One shot per minute, from marching to combat in 5 minutes and back in 10 ... Not a tenant. Unless only after the complete suppression of enemy artillery and with complete dominance in the air. Which is unlikely

          When upgrading could not improve these parameters?

            Not. The point here is pure mechanics.
            But electronics should increase accuracy and reduce the possibility of errors. Which, for example, during the battles in the city is very, very important. In addition, it will greatly reduce the time for opening fire on unplanned targets of units already deployed on the firing position. Computerization of artillery is important.

            In short, a great but obsolete tool for "stabilization operations" like the one that is happening in Syria

      It’s good that they upgraded. I heard bad news about the Coalition, blinded for the parade, but the declared characteristics are not achieved and a lot of different little things, we will not see in the series soon.

    "Tulip" was created primarily for the use of nuclear weapons. As many have already noted. And it can stand anywhere. Well, about the restoration of production of ultra-small nuclear warheads, I hope we will not hear.

    228 ADBBM 1978-1980, 3rd and 4th divisions 2C4, 1st 2C7, 2nd so far B-4. The team is at the formation stage. But it is more developed than others (Transcarpathia and the Far East). It was assumed - one ADBBM per district. In an offensive with a special projectile, the battery for the division makes a hole in the enemy’s defense. Both 2С4 and 2С7, respectively, the active-reactive range was 20 and about 50 km. 2C4 has a 6-minute drum (like a revolver). At the Gorokhovetsky training ground, the 3rd division flopped along the road (so the roads go there). The 2nd batteries were buried all day long. An active-reactive mine is clearly visible when flying overhead with a wake. Better to blame, it sometimes breaks off the trajectory.
