In Novosibirsk, developed a new high-explosive fragmentation shell caliber 122 mm

Russian artillerymen can get into service a new high-explosive fragmentation shell. The new ammunition was developed by specialists of the Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU). This was reported by the university press service.


The new 122-mm high-explosive fragmentation shell is reportedly intended for the D-30 howitzer and the 2X1 Gvozdika self-propelled artillery. The development of ammunition was carried out for three years, the tests were carried out at the test site of the Novosibirsk Scientific Research Institute of Measuring Instruments.

This is a high-explosive fragmentation shell of increased accuracy and power. Its flight range is 15 km and mass is 21,76 kg

- said in a statement.

The developers of the new ammunition do not give details, but declare that, due to the new design, the balance of the projectile has significantly improved, which has led to an increase in the accuracy of hitting at 30% compared to the standard ammunition 122-mm for the D-30 and self-propelled guns "Carnation". One of the innovations in the design is called the modified lead belt, which is now made uniform with the shell of the projectile, as in previous versions of the ammunition it was a separate part.

According to a press release, the new high-precision high-explosive fragmentation projectile is designed to suppress and destroy enemy weapons and equipment at concentration sites and strongholds, and to destroy field-type defenses and observation posts.

      That's a great question.
      A course has been taken for complete removal from service. So far, the problem is only with the Airborne D-30. Replacements are not observed.
      And in ground artillery it is easily replaced by 152.

      D-30s go to Roshydromet (it seems that they have D-30s already more than those of Moscow Region)
      2C1 should be sawn into "Hosts".

      There is also a niche of the Russian Guard, but it seems like they want to replace it with "Phlox"

          It hurts to keep so many calibers.
          Only on barrel artillery
          - 203 mm
          - 152 mm for 2С5 / 2А36,
          - 152 mm for 2С3,
          - 152 mm for 2С19 / 2А65,
          - 122 mm for 2C1 / D-30,
          - 122 mm with ready-made lugs for grooves for "Nona" and her descendants
          And plus a promising 152-mm for the "Coalition"
          Horror ....

          Ideally, two should remain. 152 with modular charges and 122 with ready-made protrusions

              In fact, there is no replacement either.
              Nona-shaped ones still have a small range for the brigade level.
              Although they can replace 2S9 with "Host" or "Vienna" or "Lotus", and give 152-mm to the howitzer division.

And, after all, once "Carnations" were pushed by our land according to the principle "Take, god of the sea, that we, the green ones, are worthless." yes Well, while they serve. Here, in connection with the topic of 122 mm., I have a question for you, if, of course, you own the info: did the MO have any "kulak cutoffs" in storage by chance? Well, if a new projectile has been developed for this caliber ...

                    Quite a logical move. There - the very thing, in the company of ZiS-2, ZiS-3 and D-1. In Donbass, "cut-offs" did not flicker - there D-30 and 2S1 are used in the buildings of the LPNR.

            For troops of constant readiness, definitely. But in the mobilization version of 122 mm, the D-30 is indispensable. Keep in storage, upgrade both shots and the system (make it self-propelled, with orientation and anchoring capabilities). Simpler and better systems for this role, because no.

            Scary ...

            It was scary when in 1990 Gorbachev signed a treaty on conventional armed forces in Europe, the so-called CFE Treaty. Then NATO and the VD assumed obligations to limit conventional weapons in Europe, restrictions were introduced on the number of tanks, armored vehicles, combat aircraft and helicopters, and, attention, artillery systems of caliber more than 100 mm. So, literally a few months after signing up for the ammunition storage base in the Belorussian Military District, where I served then, there arrived a railway transport consisting of 10 wagons with artillery shots to 76 mm ZIS-3, new straight from the factory, still hot as pies. ZIS-3 were only at the storage bases in the canned form and ammunition began to arrive. There was talk that all unnecessary artillery systems with a caliber of 122 and 152 mm falling under the quota would be replaced by a 76 mm ZIS-3. Well, then the collapse of the Union. Seichvas my former colleagues say that Lukashenko sold most of these new ammunition to Africa, they were selling like hot cakes, but there were new ones. Eh, you remember, horror.

              This is for substitute tools. We ourselves shot at the school for two seasons with the ZiS-3, with new ammunition. One season with D-44. With shells killed in zero. almost a quarter is "forbidden to shoot"
              Well, in the troops we had "kulak sawn-off shotguns" as substitutes. Standard - 152 mm caliber, 2S3 and 2S19

              It's just that all officers perform fire missions in live firing. Semiannually. And in order not to shoot the barrels under this, there are substitute weapons. And with "regular" commanders of batteries and battalions shoot

                There were no artillery schools in Belarus, and there were also no substitutes in the artillery brigade located near the storage base, we went to combat training exercises as part of a 2C3 combat training group, and fired with a standard projectile. Maybe due to the fact that this brigade was not fully deployed, one division was deployed, the rest were of a reduced composition, so it was possible to keep the trunks.

                    Colleague, I will not argue, I just say what I knew and saw. This artillery brigade received all the ammunition only from us, and they took only PF 2S3 shots for training and never others. They did not even have their own ammunition depot, everything lay with us, for the war they received mob.units, their ZNSH came to us every year and looked at their stacks that they had to load, drew entrance diagrams, how many cars could be put under loading. As for the RS BM-13, I also had them, but they were received by anti-aircraft gunners on the Tunguska from the tank division, they used them as targets in their exercises, but I don’t know how they were launched, somehow I didn’t think to ask.

                        But about poor combat training, not everything depended on the brigade commander, remember that time just before the collapse of the Union, the tops no longer thought about the army, although Khachaturov probably also saw himself in Armenia.

The stack also could not be folded if one side of the box was heavy and the other light, they just fell apart under the weight of the heavy side. Eh youth, and hello to you Lopatov, you really have the best comments on artillery hi

            Well, this is not so bad. There are still problems with logistics. They brought us 2-mm shells into the 3s152 division somehow, it turned out to be from some other system. One shell even got into an ammunition stack, so the crew then calmly loaded it and shot them.

              The shells there are about the same. At least for howitzers. But the charges, for example, for 2C3 / D-20 and 2C19 / 2A65 are different. Because shots from one to another do not fit.

                Why 152 mm troops? Well, you know how "convenient" the system (and shells) in such a caliber is., Here the D-30 is too heavy (well, you are a paratrooper). And the tasks for the Airborne Forces are not to tear the echelon, but to crush the guard, and then keep basic approach. They rushed along the example of the Americans (777), and then look who we will sell to.

              Here I just disagree. The trunk is single, but it is easier to produce than other systems and it became "stillborn" only because it was "born" at the wrong time, in the 90s. The state did not need it, and the foreign customer was not interested in 152-mm caliber, he was interested in 155-mm.

                152 mm for troops of constant readiness (regiment and higher) - definitely self-propelled guns.
                Towed, this is already in the mobile version. This system is heavy; most 122 mm problems are solved faster (even though the flow rate is 1/3 more). Even to make PAT-B self-propelled, with a device for facilitating loading, it still makes no sense to have it below the division link.

      As shown by the experience of the Great Patriotic War, 122mm, it was the main caliber of howitzer artillery. And while the barrel artillery was not abolished, the caliber is very necessary, and by many estimates, optimal.

    So what? There is no profit in such information. Maybe it's whole like a cast-iron core.
    One of the innovations in the design is called the modified lead belt, which is now made uniform with the shell of the projectile, as in previous versions of the ammunition it was a separate part.

    I’ve wang that they made it wider, and it was embedded in the shell of the projectile because the area of ​​contact with the rifling increased and a separate, nothing planted, part could collapse. It remains only to understand what will happen to the trunk.

    I’m just stupidly interested, under the ZiS-3 “In the battles of 1941, the ZiS-3 showed its advantage over the heavy and uncomfortable for the gunner F-22USV. As a result, this allowed V.G. Grabin to personally introduce the ZiS-3 to I.V. Stalin and obtain official permission for the production of guns, which by that time had already been produced by the plant and was actively used in the army. In early February 1942, official tests were carried out, which were rather a formality and lasted only five days. According to their results, the ZiS-3 was put into service on February 12, 1942 with the official name "76-mm divisional gun mod. 1942. "
    What were the resources of these people? Head, Whatman and Karadash. Everything.

      Progress cannot be stopped ... the accuracy of machine tools that stick out shells is growing. The smaller and more uniform the gaps between the outfit and the trunk, the higher the accuracy and speed. Somewhere because of the new alloys, you can make the wall of the projectile thinner and put more cc, cc itself may be new. Etc.

    this is not the matter, but in the scatter of resources and capacities, or whether it is riveting a single 152 mm shell and riveting a bunch of different ammunition of different caliber and power. but we have, as always, the same rake in the aircraft, in the tanks and in the artillery. a lot of different things and no unification
