Next May 120-mm self-propelled artillery guns (SAO) 2С42 “Lotos” will be held on Red Square for the first time in May, according to News.


For the first time, IJSC Loos will take part in the Victory Parade


The newest artillery system can fire from closed positions, like an ordinary howitzer, and destroy targets with mounted fire, like a mortar.

According to the newspaper, "Lotosy" will be held on Red Square as part of the airborne vehicles. It is assumed that the new self-propelled gun in the amphibious troops and marines will replace the entire outdated line of installations, such as "Nona-S", "Nona-SM", "Sviristelka."

The tool is developed in "TsNIItochmash." The company confirmed that a prototype of the CAO is currently being assembled and debugged. When developing the car, a complex of extraordinary engineering solutions was implemented, which made it possible to improve its combat and driving performance, as well as to increase survivability.

The SAO uses the 2X25 “Sprut-SD” undercarriage, its speed is up to 70 km / h, and the power reserve is 500 km. The machine is able to independently swim at speeds up to 10 km / h. The caliber of the gun is 120 mm, the firing range is up to 13 km. Crew - 4 person.



The hull is made of steel and special aluminum alloys, ensuring the protection of the crew from small weapons. The machine is equipped with an automated fighting compartment and a digital fire control system. The system automatically calculates the installations required for firing, as well as the amount of ammunition that is required to destroy the target.

The CAO meets the basic requirement of the Airborne Forces, imposed on all artillery systems, this is air mobility. The installation can be transferred by air and delivered to the specified area by landing method.

      It is proposedthat a new self-propelled gun will replace in the landing troops and marines .......
      The number of intentions at times exceeds the real yields! All to the parade! The electorate applauds! How long?
      I would be more comfortable with such an article title:
      "The supply of a new one to the troops has begun ..."

        All to the parade!
        And how many new equipment are in the troops? Upgraded mainly.
        Take the same tanks: on the t-14 parade, in the t-76 troops. The technique is being modernized, but the new one is a penny.

      That is, they will lose their specialization and turn into a kind of elite infantry, with tanks and self-propelled guns.

    CAO meets the basic requirement of the Airborne Forces presented to all artillery systems - this is air mobility. Installation can be flown over the air and delivered to a given area by the landing method.
    Decide SAO Cannon or SPG Installation.

      It would not hurt to decide how she shoots. The mortar also shoots from closed positions, and also lol mounted fire

        Experimental gun D-80 (topic: "atomic" artillery ...). It was developed in 2 versions: 1. "mortar" and 2. "recoilless gun".

    That is, the octopus is an anti-tank module on the BMP chassis, and the lotus is the gun mount module? So?

      between the gun and the howitzer the difference in the angles of raising the trunk. the fact that one gun is a different cannon, and that another cannon that knows a howitzer .. exactly the same, and here Octopus is a cannon ... and Lotus is already a howitzer. because it can fire almost vertically raising the barrel to +85 degrees, with a mortar. so it turns out that one anti-tank gun, and the second light howitzer. you can’t shoot from Octopus through the mound. And from Lotus you can send a gift through the mound. moreover, with a standard mortar mine 120 mm ... even NATO. no one else has such a weapon. everyone has limitations on ammunition. I don’t care for Lotus ... let’s have anyone, if only there would be 120 mm, and there the French or Italian or Russian shell is not important.

        Quote: parkello
        ..a Lotus is already a howitzer.

        And here is the nuance. The designers of "Nona" also wrinkled their minds about the specification of the device - what did they do after all. And, deciding not to bother too much, they called the product simply and without fancy: "tool". yes It certainly would have been a howitzer, but mortar mines ...

          NATO created "something similar", but "smooth-bore-breech-loading" ... they called it - "mortar gun"! We had proposals to introduce a name: "a single tool" ... even a suggestion of the name "unicorn" flashed across ... they say, they were in the 18th century. the famous unicorn cannons, which turned out to be "the world's first howitzers (howitzers)!"

            Vladimir and Alexadr, thank you both, it was nice to chat. You know. You will often meet sincere and open people on the net. especially here in VO, here some subjects began to appear, who did not finish school and also behave extremely aggressively. Well, about that. What did the designers finally get, I am more inclined to see howitzer coming out. moreover, it’s well thought out, and it doesn’t matter what they call it a gun or mortar. the main thing is that this model exists and it’s quite ready for combat readiness and has the potential for further development. in principle, as Alexander said, this dilemma began with Nona. but in addition to artillery systems. take for example RPG-7. like a grenade launcher, like an anti-tank .da? and the presence of anti-personnel grenades for it makes it not only anti-tank. request and if you attach a 82 mm mine to it, it seems that it’s not a grenade launcher at all laughing and a multifunctional, grenade-mortar complex. As you can see, dear sirs, that neither the product of the Russian military-industrial complex is another dilemma what and I’d like to say, oh my mother is my queen, who’s shy. belay

    Good news. Artillery is what you can safely spend money on. New technology may make a tank or aircraft obsolete, but not a sau. If Stalin in the thirties launched mass production not of light tanks, but of light self-propelled guns, it would have been much harder for the Germans.
