Russia has no plans to supply X-NUMX-mm combat modules AU-57M to the United Arab Emirates, and pre-contract work is underway with other Middle Eastern countries that are interested in the module. This was reported at the Dubai Airshow 220 exhibition by the TASS press service of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.


Russia conducts pre-contract work on the supply of 57-mm combat module to the countries of the Middle East


Deliveries of the combat module in the UAE are currently not planned. Many countries in the region are interested in this military product. Pre-contract work is underway.
- Said the press service.

In 2015, Oleg Sienko, then the CEO of Uralvagonzavod, reported that the United Arab Emirates would receive several hundred Russian AU-220М combat modules for their own developed infantry fighting vehicles. The memorandum providing the opportunity to equip the Arabic Enigma armored vehicle with the AU-220М module was signed in February of the same year at the IDEX-2015 exhibition in Abu Dhabi.

AU-220M is an upgraded version of the A-220 marine unit, designed for tracked or wheeled chassis. The main armament is a gun of the 57 caliber mm, an additional one is a machine gun of the caliber 7,62 mm. The module was developed by the Petrel Research Institute, part of Uralvagonzavod.

        By landline hit, by moving like not. By the way, firing was conducted at a great range, judging by the angle of elevation of the gun.

    Well, Russia has no plans to deliver the AU-57M 220 mm combat modules to the United Arab Emirates, so when they plan to equip our equipment in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry

      It is likely that when Petrel convinces the Moscow Defense Ministry to buy their cannon, which they have been working on since the late 60s of the last century. For the AU-220M is the next version launched by the development in 1967 of the ship A-220. The frequency response, no matter how much the "petrels" try to shove their AU fleet, the Navy refused and refuses it, preferring the more powerful AK-176.
      And with the land option, it is still unclear where to put it and why it is better than the existing 100 + 30 pair.
      By the way, at the exhibitions the AU-220M is prudently demonstrated incompletely - without a store. Because with him about any compactness of speech no longer comes.

        what is it better than the existing spark 100 + 30.

        Offhand: ballistics, rate of fire, isolation from the airborne squad, automation, relative efficiency against air targets.

          But less powerful OFS.

          rate of fire

          Do not forget about the second gun paired with the "weaving" - 2A72.
          Quote: Uryukc
          relative effectiveness against air targets.

          Which can only be realized with a specialized anti-aircraft SUAO. smile
          Because the fire 2A72 can be adjusted "by eye" - on the "stream" of tracers.
          But with the 57-mm this will not work - with its rate of fire and BC, you already have to calculate the point of meeting of the projectile with an air target.

    A good device, But still, in my opinion, a 23-2 or 2-30 mm 2A42 is preferable.

      And therefore they sell that for our technology this trunk is not promising.
      It’s not like this, the rate of fire is not high, the ammunition’s power does not have enough power to armor the penetration of heavy equipment, and the high explosive area is not high.
      I consider not ice. In my mind, it loses significantly to two 30 mm, which was confirmed by the "terminator"

    Do we need it in the army? Ammunition is smaller, dimensions are larger, with whom to fight on our theater? We will do for one mobile brigade and hwa.

      And not only ... 57 mm ammunition has not been used in the ground forces since 86 years. It needs this hemorrhoids with the expansion of the range of ammunition ???
      There will be contracts abroad - they will create a line for the series. And he will not go to our troops.
      The documentation is saved, tested, the line is created (subject to production of the series), ..... the deployment of production (if necessary) is a matter of a month and a half.
      This is not even a "mobilization reserve." This is a cloth development.
