SAU 2C7M "Malka". Old novelty for the army

According to the press service of the Central Military District, a few days ago one of the artillery units added to the fleet of its equipment. The army transferred the next batch of high-power self-propelled guns 2С7М "Malka". In the very near future, this technique, distinguished by the highest characteristics, will take part in its first training exercises with live firing. After that, she will continue to serve, and will make a significant contribution to the combat capability of the ground forces, ensuring that they can destroy various objects at great depths.


On the delivery of new technology, the press service of the Central Military District reported on Monday 25 June. According to the official report, one of the artillery units of the district, stationed in the Kemerovo region, received a divisional kit of new equipment. As part of the state defense order of the army, a batch of 12 self-propelled guns was transferred. Also, the report cited some technical data directly related to obtaining high combat effectiveness.



According to official information, recently transferred self-propelled guns in the very near future will go to the landfill for shooting. In July, a field camp of the Central Military District gunners will be held at the Yurginsky range (Kemerovo region). As part of this event, the Malok crews will have to reach the firing line and execute firing at training targets. However, the details of future exercises have not yet been clarified.

The recent delivery of a divisional set of self-propelled guns can have a noticeable effect on the potential of high-powered Russian artillery. According to available data, until recently, the artillery units of the Russian army had 60 combat vehicles of the 2C7M type. The supply of 12 units of such equipment is essential, both in terms of quantity and in terms of the resulting potential. In fact, now the army has even more tools for solving particularly complex and important tasks.

It should be recalled that the self-propelled gun 2С7М "Malka" is a modernized version of the older combat vehicle 2С7 "Peony". The latter was created in the early seventies, and in 1975-m entered the armament of separate battalions of artillery brigades of high-power artillery from the reserve of the High Command. To solve special combat missions, the Peonies could use 203-mm projectiles of various types, including two types of products with nuclear warheads. Depending on the type of projectile used, the firing range reached 45-47 km.

Almost immediately after the adoption of the Pion, the development of its improved version began. The result of this work was an order to start the production and operation of the 2C7М “Malka” self-propelled guns, which appeared in the 1986 year. Initially, the new SAU were to complement the existing equipment, and then gradually replace it. From the point of view of the organizational structure, the service of the new “Malka” did not differ from the operation of the “Pion”. At the same time there was a curious event. In the early nineties, in compliance with the terms of the Treaty on Conventional Arms in Europe, Russia was forced to transfer all high-power ACSs to the eastern regions, outside the European part of the country. There the technique remains to this day and regularly participates in combat training activities.

At the time of adoption, the 2C7 combat vehicle, in general, met the requirements of the time, but soon the military demanded that it be upgraded, resulting in an SAU 2C7M. First of all, in the new project provided for the replacement of the engine. The Mulco uses a multi-fuel B-84B engine with 840 horsepower. vs xnumx hp at "Peony". Were also finalized engine compartment and chassis. The chassis was equipped with routine control equipment that monitors the status of all major systems and components. All these changes have led to a significant increase in the resource of the motorcycle race.

The artillery part of the combat vehicle was notably refined. The 2А44 gun remained the same, but it was supplemented with several new devices and instruments. So, by optimizing the internal volumes of the corps, it was possible to double the payload. "Malka" carries 8 shots of separate loading with a propellant charge in the cards, although for a long shooting, like the "Peony", it needs to be supplied with ammunition by other transport. An improved loading mechanism appeared, which ensures that the projectile is loaded and charged into the chamber at any angle of elevation of the weapon. This allowed 1,6 to increase the rate of fire.

The most important innovation of the 2C7M Malka project has become new communication, control and monitoring devices. Instruments for receiving data from a senior battery officer appeared at the commander’s and gunner’s workplaces. Digital information is received and processed automatically, and then the consoles display the necessary data. The presence of such devices simplifies and accelerates the process of deployment to the position, and also allows you to quickly roll up and leave after the shooting. For aiming tools, as in the base sample, sector-type mechanisms with hydraulic and reserve manual drives are used.

“Malka” retained the 203-mm rifled gun of the type 2А44 with a barrel with a length of 55,3 caliber and a piston gate. With the help of a hydraulic brake recoil and a pair of pneumatic knurling the barrel is fixed on the swinging cradle. There is a pneumatic balancing mechanism. Due to the high power of the gun and the corresponding recoil, the chassis is equipped with a folding coulter that transmits a pulse to the ground.

The maximum rate of fire of the 2А44 gun on the 2С7М self-propelled gun is determined by the 2,5 shot per minute. Mode rate of fire - 50 shots per hour. The firing characteristics mainly depend on the type and parameters of the shot used. At the same time, regardless of the used projectile, "Malka" has significant advantages over other domestic self-propelled artillery installations.

Three types of high-explosive fragmentation projectiles are available for use with the 2А44. The 3OF34 "Albatross" weighs 110 kg and carries an 17,8 kg explosive. The 43-kg propellant type 4-3-2 is capable of sending it over a distance of more than 37 km. There is also an active-missile projectile 3OF44 "Burevesnik-2". With a mass of 102 kg, it carries 13,3 kg of explosives and is able to fly 47,5 km. It is also possible to use two types of shots with the ZONNNXX cluster projectile. Such 14 kg products carry 110 submunitions with 24-gram high-explosive charges. The firing range is 230 and 30 km, respectively.

The 3VOX34IN and 3VOX42IN shots with the 3OF43IN inert projectile and various charges are used to train the calculations. According to their characteristics, inert ammunition correspond to the main combat ones. Designed blank shot 4X47.

Even at the stage of drawing up the technical specifications of the ACS Pion and Malka, they were able to use artillery shells with a nuclear warhead. Later 203-mm projectiles of the “Castor”, “Sapling” and “Perforator” types were developed. The first two products entered service and went into a series, while the third did not go out of the stage of development work. According to different data, the shells for the Pion / Malki had a capacity of no more than a few kilotons. In this case, a similar tactical nuclear weapon could most seriously affect the results of the artillery strike and affect the course of the fighting.

In terms of technical and combat characteristics, the self-propelled 2C7М “Malka” is currently one of the most advanced models of its class both in our country and in the world. If the characteristics of mobility and mobility, this machine is almost no different from other self-propelled guns of the last decades, then in terms of combat qualities only a few samples from all over the world can compare with it.

SAU 2C7M "Malka". Old novelty for the army


Depending on the type of projectile used, the maximum firing range of the Malki reaches 45-47 km. At the same time very heavy shells with a powerful explosive charge are delivered to the target. The use of a new loading mechanism has led to a reduction in recharge time and a significant increase in the rate of fire in comparison with the base Peony.

According to the regulations, the calculation of a six-person 2X7 self-propelled gun must arrive in 7 minutes after arriving at the position. Self-propelled self-propelled ammunition consists of 8 shots, another 40 projectiles and charges are transported on a separate machine. The prepared calculation can make up to 50 shots per hour. The transition to the traveling position requires no more than 5 minutes.

It is easy to calculate that the deployment process, the use of available ammunition in the form of a single load of transport and departure from the position in the case of "Malka" take only 65-70 minutes. In this case, most of the time is spent precisely on shooting at the designated targets, including those located at a considerable distance. Using shells such as 3OF43 "Albatross", during this time the combat vehicle is able to bring down more than 850 kg of explosive on the enemy’s head, not counting several tons of metal fragments. Actively-reactive ammunition 3OF44 carry less charge, but in this case almost 640 kg of explosives will fall on the target in total.

Thus, in range 2С7М “Malka” surpasses all existing domestic guns. In terms of power, only a 240-Tulip 2-4 self-propelled 2-mm mortar can be compared to this machine, but it seriously loses in the firing range. As a result, self-propelled guns 7С2 "Peony" and 7СXNUMXМ "Malka" are the most powerful and effective samples of artillery weapons in the Russian army.

The Russian Armed Forces continue to operate several dozen self-propelled guns of high power, and are not going to abandon such systems yet. Moreover, from time to time the army gets new combat vehicles, as it was recently in one of the units of the Central Military District. In the event of a real collision with the enemy, such artillery systems will have to complement other self-propelled and towed guns. First of all, they must solve problems that are beyond the capabilities of other ACS.

Despite the limited number, 2C7М Malka self-propelled guns are of particular importance for the Russian ground forces. They are able to significantly increase the area of ​​responsibility of the barrel artillery, as well as bring a particularly powerful blow at the enemy, including with the use of special ammunition. This technique is in service for more than three decades and it will serve in the near future. There is no replacement for existing ACSs with 203-mm guns, and it’s not clear whether it will appear at all. This means that the "Peonies" and "Malki" will remain in the ranks and will continue to contribute to the country's defense.

    As I understand it, the most unacceptable is the time for the transition from marching to combat and vice versa, and rate of fire?

          It's all a bit more complicated.
          Firstly, for the vast majority of targets on the modern battlefield, even a 152-mm shell is somewhat redundant. So even without taking into account rate of fire, applying 203 instead of 152, we, to put it mildly, overpay.
          Secondly, the rate of fire not only directly affects the efficiency - for example, 6 152-mm shells are purely "weight" more than one 203 mm. This includes probability theory. Taking into account the dispersion and the errors in preparing the installations for firing, the probability of hitting a target with six shells is higher than with one, despite the somewhat larger reduced damage zone of the latter.

            I disagree, 152-155mm caliber artillery is a compromise between efficiency, mobility and logistics. What I see from video reports and eyewitness accounts, caliber 152 is not enough to work in cities and industrial zones. Reinforced concrete, brick and various monoliths are modern and not very buildings, well protect the defenders and attackers. And if these are underground communications and shelters fortified with reinforced concrete, then a 152-155mm clapper against them. I think we need a special siege barrel artillery, for example a self-propelled or towed mortar that can launch a concrete bomb or a land mine equivalent to a 1500-2000kg caliber bomb. I need a mortar Carl on a new element base. )))

        Oh, just look at it, look ...! And you do not want to! As Mkrtchyan said in Mimino: “I think so! bully "that the whole" hitch "with" Peonies / Malki "is that these guns have nuclear shells! The world began to smell of nuclear conflict, that's why the 203-mm guns were" reanimated ... Such Situation: 152-mm nuclear artillery shells have already “disappeared” somewhere, or they are small ... and nuclear 203-mm shells are also available in a larger number. Plus: 203-mm guns are fired much further ... here the military does not look at the flaws: insufficient rate of fire, a long deployment / collapse time; but at such advantages: the range and power of the 203-mm nuclear By the way, the range of the “Peony / Malki” is useful not only in that you can get a heap from afar, but also because it’s “farting vigorously” with a tray! And the Uragan, Smerch MLRS does have erases with nuclear warheads? what Something I don’t remember! request

          They are in the 152-mm caliber. And just as useless at the moment.
          If tactical nuclear weapons are to be used, then for the second echelons and other targets behind enemy lines. And for this there are Iskanders and aviation.
          But the powerful lines of defense, to overcome which it is advisable to use nuclear shells, it seems like it is not expected.

          Laughter with laughter, but the "mortar component", taking into account modern realities, needs to be seriously updated. After all, if you look at the wars in which the Russian Armed Forces participated, for some reason they have always been complex military theater, then mountains, then a city ...
          And it is on such theater of operations that mortars have serious advantages even over howitzers. In the latter, the mortar still has limitations.

          It is necessary to finish to mind a 240-mm mortar. I would never believe that with the modern development of hydraulics it is impossible to install it on an adequate wheeled chassis, while ensuring a quick transfer from marching to combat and vice versa.
          It is necessary to return the 160-mm caliber to the troops, and with doping. The Iranians were completely able to ensure compliance with modern realities, quick casting from combat to marching, and, more importantly, a quick change of the shooting sector. Albeit at the cost of reducing range due to the short barrel.
          Finally, it is necessary to bring the 120-mm caliber to the appropriate time. Aw, stick-keepers from the Moscow Region, it’s not 55 years in the yard, much less 38. And your mortar has not changed at all since then. But no, sorry, you shoved him a wheel drive with a resource of 500 km, which does not allow him to tow, just carry in the back of the car.
          It is necessary to tidy 82-mm caliber. Why should he increase the firing range, you can make it easier, especially since there are no restrictions on the CFE Treaty, therefore mortars in this caliber are not portable, but portable.

          And electronics, electronics, electronics. If it appeared in the self-propelled howitzer during the USSR, then in the mortar it is absent as a class. And this time, this is pace, this is accuracy, this is, if not an exception, then minimizing errors. That for mortars of any caliber, more often than others directly supporting the infantry and working on targets in the immediate vicinity of their troops, it is very, very important.

          In short, there is something to do. And they "Malki" drag in the troops. Gigantomania, you see, tortured. More gold embroidery on uniforms, more trunks, more calibers .... Damn, Russia seems to be like not a Latin American country ...

            And here with the help of a pair of buckets of kerosene, rags and soldiers - conscripts, modernization and delivery of such powerful equipment to the troops was carried out.

            No need to increase the range? Well, that's how to say it! In fact, not so long ago they tried to develop the concept of "long mortars"; i.e. mortars of small (small) caliber, but with elongated (compared to the "old" samples ...) barrels and elongated ammunition (!) ... As a result of this, the fragmentation and high-explosive "new" mines were higher than old "ammunition ... often, the firing range also increased (to one degree or another ...) Prototypes and" intermediate "calibers such as the" company-battalion 73-mm mortar "were created ... the Israelis offered 60-mm mortars "extending" barrel nozzles ....

            Well, why exactly 240-mm? Here, for example, there was such a "structure":

            535-mm D-80. But the "alternative" option in 280 mm was also considered ...
            Why not "imagine" a mortar with a caliber in 300 mm of such a system? The Germans in the 2MV produced high-explosive 280-mm and 320-mm incendiary rocket mines, but then developed rocket mines in a single caliber-300 mm ... "It begs" such an idea: maybe “big” mortars, and get hold of rocket mines, for example, with an 300 mm caliber like 2MM ammunition, but adjusted with a new (more powerful ...) “engine”?

              The question is the price of increasing this range. And the price is to increase weight. What is unacceptably absolute for a portable mortar.
              If this is a portable option, then there is absolutely no difference between 82 and 120 in the tactics of use. But at the same time 120 and shoots further, and more power.

                In your answer, I “see” a misunderstanding of my arguments. Take the same idea of ​​"company-battalion" mortars ... Why "emphasize" the problem of increasing the weight of weapons and ammunition, when this problem may not exist ?! In the "company" version - a short barrel, small weight of the weapon, the "old" / "short" ammunition with less weight and with less charges ... in the "battalion" version - the "same" mortar, but with an elongated barrel with a slightly larger weight, increased firing range (with a larger charge), with "long" ammunition of increased high-explosive fragmentation ... It is not "forbidden" (!) in the "battalion" version to use the "old" light mine, but in the "company" - " new "heavier ... but with less charge at a short range ...

            82 mm - why a wearable mortar? Do you want to transfer it to the platoon level? Or do you propose the option of 41 years, when you managed to save only what you can drag on yourself? Well, carry a mortar, but there are a lot of mines, are they also on hand?
            120 mm - Nona, Vienna, or not?
            160 mm - can it be better than cutting, implementing a mortar on a tank highway? All the same that you described without reducing range.
            Are you sure that the electronics will greatly help the mortar: the howitzer shell is fast and heavy, the mine is light (except for clinical cases, such as Tulip) and slow, it flies nearby and the flight altitude varies greatly, and there can be different winds at different heights?

      Not even the rate of fire, but the time of the transition from combat to marching. She will cover it several times during this time

        Well, for towed guns, the time is clearly higher and they definitely won’t be covered. lol

          You will laugh, but yes.
          The towed 2A65 Msta-B collapses three times faster.

            On paper, it certainly looks good until it comes to real hostilities

              And?
              In real combat, will time only change for towed ones?

                In real combat, it’s good if there is a tug for towing)

                  He will be found for sure. But with the "Malka" ... It breaks down, unless the tank pulls away.

    Are these systems necessary or not needed? .. Like any weapon: depending on what conditions, for what situation. Looking at what kind of war they will fall. Mb not useful at all if the database lasts a few days. Mb - for individual specific places and activities - several units or batteries.
    How do you guess? Now everything is mobile, fast-flowing, and unpredictable.

    If you apply all the innovations applied to the 203mm Coalition to a 152mm barrel, you can get an interesting system with a GLONNAS projectile of about 100 km.

      For this howitzer, even ordinary shells are not fired, starting in the late 80s. What they shoot will be incomprehensible.

            So 203mm in reserve ... the gunners do not care what to shoot from. The calculations are the same, but deploying, collapsing and digging-digging out shells are not needed ... They were mainly based in the GDR and were designed for special equipment. Just from the 80s on the cliffs and stand.

    I read an article that "Peonies" were designed for a projectile with a nuclear charge, the engineers were not able to stuff a nuclear device into a 152mm projectile, the minimum that was possible was 203mm, so I had to create a gun for the projectile.

      In the German Democratic Republic and in Hyacinth, 152 mm was NJF and 203 mm was NJD, and now, if a 203 mm +2 meter projectile hits, then NJ is not needed.

    MLRS would be preferable, and no acoustics are detected. True smoke is enough.

      The projectile is more delicate and less damage to the target’s surroundings. At such a range, 300mm will fly or 240mm, and there is a serious warhead.

        For MLRS choose the appropriate caliber will be much easier than for guns.

    Great gun! And if the projectile can still be controlled, but sub-caliber-lightweight, with DGG or ramjet, then 100+ km of range are achievable. Well, on-board means of topographic location, navigation, etc., to modernize (although everything seems to be done here, GLONASS terminal, etc.)

    In the early nineties, fulfilling the terms of the Treaty on Conventional Arms in Europe, Russia was forced to transfer all self-propelled guns of high power to the eastern regions, outside the European part of the country

    Since the configuration of the aircraft in Europe has changed due to the collapse of the Warsaw Treaty, I think it makes no sense to comply with this Treaty more. So it's time to return to the normal arrangement of these artillery systems. What if you need it? what
