Syrian howitzers "Acacia" hit the Islamists with direct fire

33
The fighting in the SAR, when the troops had to fight in difficult urban conditions, forced the command to resort to extraordinary solutions: the gunners had to put the powerful 152-mm self-propelled howitzer 2C3 "Acacia" to direct fire, writes Messenger of Mordovia.




“For people far from the Syrian realities, such use of relatively easily armored self-propelled guns seems suicidal. However, the Syrian gunners have already filled their hands on similar tactics of hostilities. They are trying to keep out of the areas of possible use of rocket launchers, ”the article says Dmitry Lemeshko.

In addition, the blocked militants began to have big problems with obtaining "sponsorship" - anti-tank complexes.

Therefore, self-propelled guns with almost impunity attack the fortifications of terrorists, literally sweeping them from the face of the earth with shells weighing more than 40 kg.

The author notes that the 2C3 with their relatively short gun barrels "turned out to be well adapted to assault operations in the conditions of the city."

Help publication: "Weight SAU" Acacia "- 27,5 T. Crew - 4 person. Armament - 152-mm howitzer 2А33. The firing range of a conventional high-explosive fragmentation projectile is up to 17, 4 km. Ammunition - 46 shots. The rate of fire is up to 4 shots per minute. Reservations - up to 30 mm. Engine power - 520 HP Maximum speed - up to 60 km / h. Power reserve - up to 500 km. "

      - it is very soft and warm! Because it is not durable. Not at all durable! The use of manpower and equipment as a cartridge is short-sighted.

      You have a strange opinion ... self-propelled guns to perform their tasks, "mobiles" for their own ... somehow they intersect a little

    I have long said and others say that I NEED AN ATTACK HEAVY-RESERVED SPG with a gun of at least 152 mm caliber, preferably a “St. John's wort” type with a rotating turret. And then it turns out ....

      Armata with a 152 mm gun will do?) KAZ Afghanit will allow you not to be afraid of RPGs, I think it's time to send it there for testing

        NO! The angle of elevation of the gun is small, and if you carefully work with the search engine in comparison, you need a howitzer, or better, the Bahcey version based on Vienna, of type 782. It's simple.

      It's like that. 152mm howitzer or 160mm mortar. With the ability to use ATGMs through the barrel. It's time to move from words to deeds. Street fighting is inevitable in any type of armed conflict and you need to be prepared for it fully armed.

          Sorry, but the self-propelled gun, which goes on the attack, holds the barrel as high as possible, so that God forbid what a stray fragment or bullet hit the fuse, since the stub simply did not protect it, in the present conditions it is not needed.

      I agree, but not by the type of "St. John's Wort", it is better by the type of "Uralmash"

    Well, 152 is a force ... here the cng-9 is even good ... A gun is a force. fast and accurate. but not far away. on the other hand, we were taught that 12 guns were needed for one modern tank. MT-12 "rapier" and if at least one beats a tank there will already be a benefit. Well, this is when tanks mass attack. a second shot is rarely given when it is done.

      Again, the bike is not a bike ... in Afghanistan. Afghan houses hit 122 shells full of holes. 152 smashed everything ... maybe a bike. yet 122 is also a beast.

    Interestingly, and based on this experience of the Syrians, it is possible to develop a BMPT-type machine based on the "Acacia" or upgrade them to a more secure level and designed to fight in the city?

      The Syrian experience will not help us in any way - a different climate, relief, enemy. Is it to break in their new products, no more. And the battle in the city in our BUSV was registered when Syria was not there yet laughing drinks

        And then the charter? I'm not talking about theoretical developments, but about technology. Are there many "Acacia" in warehouses? And not only our vast Motherland, but also the countries of the former Warsaw Pact and the CIS? There is a prospect of modernization potential, including export

    Yes, instead of a parade at the Communist Party, is it necessary to arrange a parade of terminators in Syria?

    After using the “Shilok” direct fire, this solution is already NORMAL.
    Extraordinary, it was the use of our 203 mm B-4 howitzers on the streets of Berlin

      Well, nevertheless, Berlin was a well-fortified strong point, and in all of Syria there is no building which cannot be destroyed from the 2C3 Acacia howitzer, it is more likely from hopelessness that they shoot with what is available.

          When shooting direct fire at a 1-2 km distance, a guided howitzer shell is not needed.
          Too expensive pleasure, and supplying them is not enough to beat anywhere.
          See a chronicle of street fighting in Syria. There, most of the shells go to suppress the activity of the defenders, and not to destroy manpower and equipment.

    It would be interesting to learn from our veterans of the Great Patriotic War, and in how many days they, then, with the weapons of 1944-1945, could now cope with ISIS.

      I don’t know about ISIS, but if you remember, at the beginning of the two thousandth Chechen detachment captured the Dagestan village. Our security forces there gathered some crowds of people and a breakthrough of equipment right up to the Grad and helicopters, after which they attacked for several days with storms. In the final, the terrorists left without much loss in Chechnya.
      My father fought in the second half of the Second World War as part of a combat engineer assault brigade. According to him, to solve the problem of taking the village and freeing the hostages, an assault battalion was enough for 4-6 hours. It was just necessary to act competently, decisively and quickly. And neither the first nor the second nor the third was observed in the actions of our security forces.

        Ridgway in Korea stormed 2 hills north of Kumhua for several weeks and came to the conclusion that an atomic bomb should be used on each hump. Skorzeny in his memoirs does not report successful battles with Soviet and Yugoslav partisans, Bandera resisted until 1953 and the war began to decline with the beginning of the thaw and a change in politics in the USSR, in 1993 decisive fighters were able to break through the cordon around the Supreme Council, All Al Qaeda lost her first battle to an Afghan machine gunner and successfully fought in the second battle with Soviet special forces with air support. It all depends on the determination, skill, experience and luck of the fighters.

    Long-range artillery in the city to drag, well done.
    Soon there will be frames with fire flowers from acacias after the next hit TOW
