In Syria, wheeled self-propelled guns with Soviet long-range cannons “lit up”

15
The Syrian army continues to use 130-mm self-propelled wheeled artillery mounts. For the first time these self-propelled guns, made on the chassis of four-axle German commercial trucks Mercedes Actros 4140, were spotted in March 2013, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




Sweat data from open sources, these self-propelled guns were developed in Syria before the outbreak of civil war. Their small-scale production began during the conflict.

Each new self-propelled gun out of the workshop with one or another improvement. For example, the cockpit armored protection was constantly upgraded. However, the artillery part remained unchanged - it is the 130-mm gun M-46.



“These guns still hold the title of the most long-range in the land forces of Syria. They can hit 33 27 m with a conventional 490-kilogram high-explosive fragmentation projectile. Active-rocket projectiles delivered by the People's Republic of China, capable of hitting targets at a distance of 44 000 m, are also in the ammunition, ”the publication says.

No major battle can do without 130-mm ACS. They are used as highly mobile artillery reserve - thanks to the wheelbase of the machine can quickly move from one front to another.

      A civilian truck was originally taken as a carrier.

    The title is what !!!! "The SPGs are shut ...." Homemade. I do not blame the Syrians, well done. In 1941, too, we had something horrible, if only the enemy was beaten. The same NI-1 (for fear). Questions to zhurnalyugami. But more practical than towed. May God grant to the benefit, and combat good luck to the SAA gunners.

      Have you ever seen them shoot? At the time of the shot, from enormous dynamic loads, the car’s frame twists almost into a “corkscrew”. The design of the car is not designed for such loads and for a long time it will not be enough.

        I saw a respected, but not homemade. And moreover, he shot 2C3 at the time. But fishlessness and cancer are fish. So your sarcasm is inappropriate. Artpolk Guards Tamanskaya.

          You dear read carefully, and here 2C3? The conversation is actually about the wheelbase. And not special, but self-made, based on a serial truck.

            Dear interlocutor, you asked if I saw the shooting, I answered. 130 mm from 152 mm stand nearby. And about homemade products, see my comments, everything is written there.

              Thinking and writing are two different things. Probably thought, but essentially forgot to write. For especially literate, I remind you that we are talking about

              not about your memories of artillery fire. Your opinion on the matter was limited to a meaningless phrase
              fishless and cancer

          I’m talking about the same thing, replacing a car is much easier than losing such a valuable weapon.

    Syrian "wheeled self-propelled guns" with the 130-mm M-46 gun have been known for more than a year .... what is there nothing more for journalists to write about?

        Yes, the Syrians hardly “push” into everything that moves! And 57-mm С-60, and 100-mm КС-19 ...

    All in business. While the barmalei helps to beat. The frame will break a new gelding will be found. And the artillery of the USSR will work for a long time. good
