In Syria, not yet fought "Carnation"


A photo with the image of a self-propelled 2C1 "Gvozdika" appeared on the Internet, which has not been exploited by the armed forces of the Arab Republic before.

The self-propelled 122-mm howitzer was captured in some large enclosed area together with the same "fresh" infantry fighting vehicle BMP-2.

As the newspaper notes, “over the years of the war, the once very numerous“ Gvozdik ”park thinned out and reinforcements in the form of, if not new, technology, under effective conditions, did not prevent it.”



"Carnations" were used in all the most important combat operations of the Syrian army. This installation, along with the more powerful 152 mm "Akatsii" are currently the basis of self-propelled artillery of the Armed Forces of Syria.



Recall 2C1 "Gvozdika" - Soviet 122-mm regimental self-propelled howitzer, developed by specialists of the Kharkov plant them. Ordzhonikidze. The self-propelled gun is designed to "suppress and destroy manpower, artillery and mortar batteries, as well as to destroy bunkers, to ensure passageways in minefields and field obstacles."

    Good thing ... As I understand it, it works beyond the reach of anti-tank weapons ...

      No, it works like a tank in an urban environment. Therefore, a lot of this technique is lost.

            Vryatlya, overpressure most likely killed the crew.

              It seemed to me (or not?), But the hatch on the tower was open. If yes. then perhaps the concussion escaped. request

              Again, tales of overpressure. At least they got a concussion, because the blast wave flew in through the open hatches.

        uh, it works like a tank in an urban environment.

        Is 15km direct fire in urban environments? This is a regimental howitzer, not PTSAU

      What are you brother, this is artillery. Although you can certainly roll out for direct fire, but this is not from a good life.

      The Syrian army received reinforcements in the form of another batch of armored vehicles, according to the Bulletin of Mordovia.

      Or maybe it's a refurbished self-propelled gun or from storage from Syrian warehouses. I would like to recall that in Syria, the forces of Russia restored several RemBats and one repair team in Hama. Even in the winter of 2016, a large number of equipment and spare parts for various techniques were brought there to bring specialists under a single command, training was organized. (On the network walked photos from this base, 131 Zily with kung type MTO, etc.).

      The decommissioned IS-2s in 1991 would be more efficient for the given database conditions .. There is no need to rush from this conclusion, everything will go to business ...

          It was IS-2 and wrote them off at 95m ..
          After the war, the IS-2s were modernized and were in service with the Soviet and Russian armies until 1995.

    To go nuts conclusion:
    The Syrian army received reinforcements in the form of another batch of armored vehicles,


    Or maybe it's a repair company. You can’t show it only, otherwise our American partners will be aroused and will ask our other partners to find Hezbollah’s warehouse there and bomb it from their paysolets.

    In capable hands, a very formidable weapon .. Syria is the first Crimea was for Russia! US plans -Israel failed in BV completely ..
    In Syria, we tested about 200 of the latest weapons! And how many flyers in a combat situation break in ..?

    I'm losing weight, dear edition:
    - A photo appeared on the Internet with the image of the 2C1 Gvozdika self-propelled gun, which had not yet been operated by the armed forces of the Arab Republic.
    - “Carnations” were used in all the most important military operations of the Syrian army. wassat

      Since there is not much time, I will briefly explain the obscenities)))
      We noticed a specific installation that looks clean and new, while its "sisters" have long been successfully fighting in Syria and bear the imprints of the database

        Not everyone reads articles CAREFULLY. Some are here just to criticize and express their SPECIAL opinion. Several times I noticed that the writing comments AT ALL did not read the article, or did not read to the end.
        In addition, it is necessary to read it not only carefully, but also at least have a little logical thinking ..

    BTRZ in Homs conducts a full cycle of repair work, including overhaul with modernization, not the fact that self-propelled guns from the "express". It looks like "Herald ...." a bunch of victims of the exam.
