          4 fuselages of varying degrees of readiness have been gathering dust at the factory since the 90s, and now everyone takes turns on the wing.

            Something like that I supposed. So it’s premature to talk about the “new plane” ...

      Yes, they made a good specialized car for artillery. It is not unimportant that it is equipped with a boom-manipulator, which greatly facilitates the process of loading and unloading ammunition and other equipment.

        Well, the “other equipment” can be carried with one hand there, there is only a panorama, a sight, a collimator and a collimator tripod.
        But with the ammunition ... Something I do not observe a movable awning. Ours, as usual, do not finish anything

          This means that the calculation will have a new standard for the "sheathing-uncovering" of the body, or a convertible top with an awning. Goal for fiction is cunning.

          The awning is normal .. a condom type .. And you apparently weren’t confused at -20 to move the sliding roof mechanism, especially if there was a thaw, then it froze .. very fun .. I recommend ..
          a condom in any frost will be removed faster than you get to the mechanism of a movable roof .. This is me as a trucker whose car is awning .. I say ..

            Did not have to.
            But it was necessary at minus 32 boxes with shells for guns from the body to spread 8))). As, however, at higher temperatures. That is another task ...

    I only care about one aspect: why in Syria you can’t see the work of the Coalition-SV self-propelled guns? Was there really no job for her? Such performance characteristics and front passage on Red Square? Or are there no goals for artillerymen in Syria? what

      This is completely pointless at the moment.

      There is. But the use of even 2S19 in a war of this kind is an excessive pleasure.
      But if you add this option, 2A65 + armored tractor, a good system of automated fire control, from which the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for some reason kicks off with your hands and feet, you will get a great option for local wars.

        There is a wheeled version of the Coalition, and I don’t think that Tu-22m3 sorties are cheaper than volleys from this installation. And who said that the Syrians should shoot from it?

          It's not about the money. It’s just that at this stage it’s pointless. Shooting somewhere at the Luga firing range will provide much more information than military use in Syria.

    Personnel from the 227 art brigade of Maykop were sent to Syria. I hope this is not a military secret and they will not put me in jail.

    Finally, in artillery, they thought about the comfort of artillery guns. And then it’s not enough to ride in the winter in the back “with insulated arches” or to swallow dust in the summer! Yes, and there’s where to rest, hide from the rain, take food ...
