- declared the general

In the second army of the Central Military District, a new artillery division of high power was formed.


240-2 Tulip 4-mm self-propelled mortar is designed to destroy durable field-type facilities, command posts, artillery and rocket batteries and other military equipment inaccessible for flat fire. The firing range of the usual projectile to 10 km, active-reactive - to 20 km.

Also, the Major General reported that the CVO motorized rifle brigade, formed in December 2016 of the year near Samara, received the last batch of UAZ-Patriot vehicles, now they are in a brigade around 100 units.

The army has a motorized rifle battalion that is unique for the Russian Armed Forces. It was formed as part of a new motorized rifle brigade at the end of last year, using the experience of modern combat operations. Recently, the last batch of pickups that can carry not only Kalashnikov machine guns or AGS-17 automatic grenade launchers, but also anti-tank and missile systems

    Again, an occasion for "Veyshnorii" spit saliva. It’s scary to get 240mm on your head, and no missile defense will help here.

      the device is serious, but there is no perfect weapon ... the vulnerability of this unit in its firing range is 19 km ... the answer can fly even with a smaller caliber.

        Well, you understand that in the Central Military District he has nothing to destroy the dugout and meticulous laughing this is nuclear artillery and we are not waiting for return wassat the same went closer to the Chinese border

          Nuclear artillery with a range of 19 km? Well, I don’t know ... It will fit in the anti-Barmalean operation. She's good at home in the city. And so, in modern warfare it is not entirely clear why it is needed. In my opinion it is better to replace it with OCR.

            Do not replace, but supplement laughing TNW in fact from Iskander (range from 50 to 500 km), i.e. a tactical missile, to a nuclear mine, has its range from zero to 500 km, then the strategic nuclear forces begin. Therefore, from 0 to 20 km has its own niche for the destruction of the enemy. CVO has a common border with the PRC, in the Altai Republic, between Kazakhstan and Mongolia, i.e. just the numerous clusters of hunhus, easily turn into fry. Here is the interval from 20 to 50 km, they want to block the increase in the range of shells to 70 km (there was an article recently) by adding an engine. Although there is Tochka-U with a range of 15 to 70 (120) km, there are special units from 10 to 200 kilotons to it. But it is expensive when you can solve the problem with a conventional (not quite) artillery shell (mine), incl. with engine and correction.

              I mean, that a nuclear explosion at a distance of ka you write from 0 to 20 kilometers in my opinion is a very dubious pleasure for the shooter.
              If there is the possibility of using 152 mm shells, it is not clear why such a big babah is needed.
              Given the limitations on the number of nuclear weapons, including tactical ones, both from the side of the treaties and from the limited resources, it is not clear why nuclear shells are needed at all. Isn't it more efficient to attach a rocket engine and guidance system to each charge? In my opinion, nuclear shells were relevant in the absence of other means of delivery, with the current level of their development, I do not quite understand where they can be used.

                Low-powered charges do not have such a large radius and do not forget that self-propelled guns are on a tank base, and tanks are the most stable means on the battlefield from all the damaging factors.

                Price-quality, cheaper than the use of barrel artillery can not be found, again resistance to the means of the enemy in self-propelled guns that are armored vehicles. Ease of use, mobility, compactness and easier to mask. All rocket launchers are wheeled (less cross-country), dimensional, do not have a powerful reservation, a complex, high-tech device. They are not canceled, but sent to a distant frontier, it still matters - huge stockpiles of nuclear weapons from the USSR, which should work, not lie down and be disposed of.

        Missile defense position areas in Poland and Romania to cover. Special ammunition. Simultaneously with the start.
        Well, or brigades of any rabble on the Russian-Estonian border. Or to lay the Suvalki corridor.

      It was high time to do it. We need such a machine not in storage behind the Ural ridge, but specifically in Syria, Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib. The tulip hits with an accuracy of 130 meters and a charge of explosives in two-pood toys. And do not drive the aircraft. He will make a thermobaric mine and the spirits themselves will give up after a couple of shots.

      There is a counter-battery fight! Missile defense has nothing to do with it.

      the first construction of the personnel of the new division took place and the solemn transfer to them of the standard equipment, which entered service at the State Defense Order, took place.

      If the release on the wiki stopped in 1988, then one of two things:
      resumed production of the development machine in 1971
      repaired cars after long-term storage.

    Interestingly, are nuclear and neutron shells still being fired for it? Serious device.

      In warehouses enough of the USSR remained. They are not consumed quickly. laughing rather, they have not yet been used as intended smile

      With such a radius of destruction, using these charges is more expensive!

      Hehe hehe ... many good songs were in the Union. There was, for example, a song about the work of OMON and SOBR:
      Not all "bird cherry" yet
      Thrown into the window to you.

    But do they have an unlimited shelf life? Not much time has passed since the collapse of the USSR.
    I imagine a volley with such shells, for example, for brave lovers to take a picture against the background of Ivangorod.

      And most importantly, why, if there is then 155 mm of ammunition.
      Though. 16 installations for the entire army - maybe not so much, maybe where it will come in handy.

    an interesting question is how much special ammunition he has in Kilotons, because for a 152 mm 3BV3 shell - 2.5 Kt is usually indicated

    Previously, every army had art. brigade "high power", in my opinion. Once in the Altes Camp (GSVG) they ran into their warehouses - they were spiritually guarded. Again, there was an IBA regiment, also “carriers”, it was convenient for RTB-shniks - everything was stored in one place.
