It became known about the completion of the modernization of the 2С7М "Malka" and 2С4 "Tulip"

In Russia, modernization work is being completed as part of the 2X7M Malka self-propelled gun upgrade project. This 203-mm self-propelled gun is in service with the Russian Ground Forces. The first modification - 2С7 "Peony" - has been in operation since 1975 of the year. The upgraded version - 2С7М - from 1986 of the year.


It became known about the completion of the modernization of the 2С7М "Malka" and 2С4 "Tulip"


Referring to the press service of UVZ, RIA News reports that the Malka self-propelled gun is changing the transmission, as well as distribution mechanisms and power supply units. As a modernization, communications, instrumentation complex of anti-nuclear protection, information processing equipment are being replaced.

By state order, modernization of the 240-mm self-propelled mortar 2С4 "Tulip" is also provided. The Uraltransmash company, which is part of Rostec’s structure, is at the final stage of this work. Tulip receives the latest surveillance tools, a radio station, and communication systems that allow 2С4 to operate in a single tactical link system.

Large-caliber self-propelled guns at one time were developed as a means of possible tactical nuclear strike. In the USSR, the 2A3 self-propelled gun and the 2X1 self-propelled mortar, which were armed with tactical nuclear munitions, were once developed in the USSR.

For reference: the combat mass 2С7М “Malka” in the previous layout was 46,5 tons, the crew was 6 people, the P-173 radio station was used, the transported ammunition was 8 shells, and the self-propelled gun was put into combat position for 7 minutes.

In the new modification, the self-propelled gun is capable of operating on the battlefield with the ability to aim at the target with the Orlan drone.

      I wonder what the firing range and the mass of the shell at self-propelled guns.

    Chic trunk and reliable chassis. There is nothing to throw about such remarkable achievements. And electronics and transmission are a completely different matter. But what a powerful gun! She would have adjustable ammunition. And watch out, enemy! Although how much do we know, maybe already?

      If this gun is not rifled, that is, the experience of turning ordinary large-caliber ammunition into correctable - the fuse was replaced with a combined system with controlled planes.
      True, a particularly large inaccuracy cannot be corrected - within a dozen or two meters. But already something.

        It is actively reactive, so the mass of explosives will decrease.

    It seems that they forgot to indicate such an important point as the integration of new ammunition - planning corrected high-precision long-range shells.

    Not a specialist and I will not go into details, the main thing is that the opponent was across the throat. To hiccup and fart continuously.

      Alas, the enemy looks at these systems as a target - too low rate of fire, too long coagulation time.
      At the end of the 80s, it was believed that if the self-propelled gun battery wants to survive, that it can give no more than three or four volleys with one OP, then curl up in 2-3 minutes and quickly leave for the next OP. For in five minutes the enemy’s shells / missiles will be dancing at the OP.
      2C7M coagulation time is twice the maximum time spent on the OP. And the rate of fire is such that from one position it can give only one or two shots.

        This standard applies to 152mm howitzers ... 203 mm con battery fighting and work on the rear and infrastructure .... and special warheads

          203 mm kontr battery struggle and work on the rear and infrastructure

          That is, in counter-battery fighting, one does not need to take into account the possibility of enemy retaliatory fire? Remember Leningrad - there, according to the counter-battery firing batteries, the enemy began to work 10-15 minutes after they opened fire.
          Do not hope for superiority in range and work because of the effective Loladin radius - the Yankees have something to get there, with the same M270. Plus, do not forget about the pan-howitzers with their 52-caliber barrels.

            For these purposes, we had the TochkaU ... and if the battery battle is conducted with 152mm guns, then yes. And Malka was supposed to shoot 155 mm howitzers of the enemy. There were another 130mm guns.

          There is nothing to do with the air defense there - all kinds of pan-howitzers and MLRS / HIMARS will work on 2C7M positions.

    Watch the video about the new sao of the enemy. On the move, the car stops and starts firing and dumps. The time of preparation and departure from the position is not more than 0,5-1,5 minutes (different types). We have 7 minutes! 10 times to destroy

    Clotting time, deployment time .. Do you really think that these systems will be used against an adversary who can detect and destroy them even on the approaches to the position?
    In the second Chechen, it seems, ours was used on a problem high-rise apartment building Tulip. They managed to reach a direct hit from the first shot; as a result, the high-rise building turned out to be like a house of cards. Then the Dudaevites began to yell on all the airs that the Russian Federation had used nuclear weapons.
