100 km and more. New shells are created for Russian self-propelled guns

As it became known, Russian industry is working to create promising ultra-long-range artillery systems. Their basis will be the latest 2S35 Coalition-SV self-propelled gun, and the required characteristics will be provided with special shells. According to the domestic press, new types of ammunition will be able to hit targets at ranges of more than 100 km.

Special shells


Izvestia reported on work on creating new artillery ammunition on March 5, citing unnamed sources in the defense industry. Some technical details and main features of the projects are given. At the same time, the completion dates and the receipt of shells for service are not specified.

It is alleged that the industry is developing several shells of extended range with different features. While it is a question of design work, but soon it is planned to conduct the first tests of experimental products.

New shells are carried out in caliber 152 mm, which will allow them to be used together with modern artillery pieces. They will be able to use promising self-propelled guns 2S35 “Coalition-SV”, serial self-propelled guns 2S19 “Msta-S” and towed guns 2A65 “Msta-B”. It is alleged that due to such ammunition the firing range will be increased to 100 km or more.

For comparison, the maximum tabular firing range 2C19, depending on the type of shot, reaches 25-30 km. For 2C35, approximately twice as large numbers were called. The possibility of reaching the level of 70-80 km was also mentioned.

Technical details


Some technical information is provided. One of the ultra-long-range shot projects involves the creation of a telescopic munition with a ramjet engine. Moreover, such a product in its design as a whole does not meet the generally accepted definition of a telescopic projectile.

Telescopic, i.e. the ammunition body is sliding - during flight it must open and increase its size. A ramjet is placed in such a case. The telescopic design of the munition allows you to improve the basic characteristics of the engine in comparison with other layouts, which improves flight performance. To ensure the required accuracy, the projectile is equipped with an unnamed type control system.

How other ultra-long-range shells are built and look is not reported. It can be assumed that several designs are being worked out at once, which allow one or another advantage to be obtained. How soon such details of the project become known is unknown.

Against the background of analogues


It is known that several foreign countries are also working on the issue of increasing the range of barrel artillery systems. Various ideas and solutions are proposed and tested in practice, which ensure the desired growth of characteristics. Through the use of several approaches, it has already been possible to exceed a range of 70 km, and in the near future shooting at 100 km is expected.

So, in the USA, the towed and self-propelled guns of the ERCA family (Extended Range Cannon Artillery) are successfully tested. In this project, an increase in firing range is provided by an increase in barrel length and the use of an active-rocket projectile. ERCA ammunition is compatible with existing self-propelled guns of the M109 family. In their case, a significant increase in range is also achieved.

Different countries are developing various designs of promising ammunition that can contribute to increasing the firing range. First of all, a search is being made for more advanced designs of an active rocket. Ammunition of the "traditional" type and equipped with ramjet are offered. A part of such products has already been brought to testing and confirms the calculated characteristics.

It is expected that over the next few years, new projects will increase the characteristics of the barrel artillery. So, the U.S. Army should get a new modification of the M109 self-propelled guns with a firing range of 40 km, and in the future, fundamentally new systems are expected to hit targets 80-100 km or further.

Domestic specifics


According to recent reports, Russian and foreign gunsmiths use different approaches. In foreign projects, maximum characteristics are planned to be obtained due to the special development of a full-fledged artillery complex, including a new type of gun and shell. Promising Russian projects include the use of ready-made guns, possibly with minimal modifications, and fundamentally new ammunition.

Both approaches have their strengths and weaknesses, but allow you to get the desired results. The Russian approach has an important advantage in the form of the absence of the need to develop a new gun and / or self-propelled gun. A promising projectile is created taking into account the requirements of existing weapons. This can lead to some difficulties or limitations, but overall provides significant savings in design, production and operation.

Obvious advantages


The complex in the form of an existing weapon, initially capable of using a wide range of 152 mm ammunition for various purposes, and a new ultra-long-range projectile should show high combat qualities and flexibility in solving all basic problems. He must maintain the positive features of artillery systems and gain new opportunities due to increased firing range.

The replenishment of the Msta or Coalition-SV ammunition with a new ultra-long-range projectile will lead to an obvious increase in their combat potential. Divisional artillery will be able to hit targets at a greater depth of the enemy’s defense or work from a greater distance from the line of contact, outside the zone of responsibility of enemy guns. In this regard, modernized self-propelled guns will be a good addition to operational-tactical missile systems.

Loss in the power of ammunition at the same time compensate for other advantages. Despite a significant increase in range, the new projectile will be much cheaper than a rocket, the deployment of artillery at a position will still be quick, and the flight time of the projectile will remain at the required level. In addition, the enemy will not be able to repel the strike, intercepting flying projectiles - the technology required for this is not yet available.

Timing issue


According to the latest news, domestic projects of ultra-long-range artillery shells are still in their early stages, but in the near future it is expected to transfer prototypes for testing. Checking and comparing several designs, as well as selecting and fine-tuning the most successful one, will take some time. Probably, this process will stretch for several years.

It can be assumed that in the absence of serious difficulties, the new ammunition will reach adoption by the middle of the decade. By this time, army artillery will be ready to accept and use them.

The systems of the Msta family are already in service. Supplementing their ammunition nomenclature is unlikely to be difficult and time consuming. In fact, the use of new shells will require only some refinement of the fire control system. After such an upgrade, towed and self-propelled guns will be able to use the potential of fundamentally new ammunition.

Not so long ago, the readiness of a new batch of self-propelled guns 2S35 "Coalition-SV", intended for military trials, was reported. These events will last until 2022, after which it is expected to launch mass production. By the mid-twenties, the army will receive sufficient quantities of new equipment. Apparently, ensuring the compatibility of 2C35 and new ammunition will also not be particularly difficult and will not slow down the introduction of new technologies.

Thus, in the future, the Russian army will be able to get not only promising self-propelled artillery mounts with modern weapons and equipment, but also ammunition with enhanced characteristics. The introduction of all these products will be carried out gradually and over time, but the outcome of such measures is already clear. However, to obtain the desired results, it is necessary to carry out all the required stages of work. So far, the immediate plans of the industry are the first tests, which means that much remains to be done.

      Shells are created for specific tasks. At such a range, the ammunition must be adjustable. It will be useful for destroying ammunition depots in tactical depth.

    He served on 2C5, they gave us data on the maximum range with an active-missile projectile of 32 km. 2С19, in principle, I think about the same thing, I observed their firing during the exercises, as their division was in a neighboring position. We really shot at 12 km and pulled out the gun constantly from the charge.

        You want to say that in 2C5 it is possible and in 2C19 it is impossible to push the same shells? On 2C5 it’s possible, I was so taught in the army when I served on them. I won’t argue about 2C19 because I don’t know for sure.

            It’s clear that I didn’t deeply deal with this issue, just about the technology on which they served us, they hammered into the head all the characteristics and stuff. But somehow I was not interested in this issue later. After the army, I have been working in aviation for 25 years (now in the design bureau) and I have a carriage and a small cart in this area. Although at work I came across artillery, only 30 mm caliber, but the rate of fire is impressive. But 2 years in the sun still did not go in vain :-)

    Probably they can shoot. But get in? 30 km is a line of sight from a height of 30 meters (for perfectly smooth land), i.e. the ability to adjust hits from the place of the shot. 100 km will require external target designation. The advantage of an artillery shell over a rocket of equal combat effectiveness is relative cheapness. To fuss for the dubious results?

        The LRLAP guided projectile consists of the projectile itself and the engine compartment. The length of the projectile is 2,24 m, the mass is 102 kg, the mass of the explosive is 11 kg. In the bow of the projectile there are 4 control wings, in the tail of the 8-blade stabilizer. Inertial projectile control system using GPS. The CWO of the projectile is 20–50 m. ... the cost of such a projectile, taking into account the specific share of development costs, reaches 800 thousand dollars.

          They do not shoot high-precision shells for a couple of days. They shoot exclusively by piece. Because the probability of hitting a point target in the MTC today is 0,8-0,9. "A couple of days" shoots ordinary art at area targets. For example: the consumption rate for suppressing an unobservable battery of towed guns for an artillery of 152-203 mm is 180 shells. Krasnopoli would require 3-4 maximum. I don’t think that the artillery battery should be extinguished using a military-technical cooperation, but control centers, communication centers and other point targets are quite suitable.

      We fired at Dauria for the hills for 12 km and naturally didn’t see anything, only according to the gunners we adjusted the fire. On average, after my calculations (how can I not praise myself :-)) for the first sighting there, various shortcomings or to the left or right were within 50-200 m (I still don’t know what the gunners put on the guns, I think my data). Well, and then when the battery (better division) fugitive begins to throw, I think there accuracy is not particularly needed. Without a gunner (you can take a drone), I think I can only hit there with guided projectiles (any television at least). The cost of such a projectile is accordingly different. The only unification of the 1st stage (charge) will throw this thing at its 27 km maximum, and then in any case the projectile itself will work (I think it will still be more a rocket than just the projectile I came across). Well, the unification of the existing equipment is also not necessary, you do not need to create anything new, to buy. And well, even if it is a vigorous tactical shell, then the game can and is worth the candle. How many carriers immediately appear. At least 2C5 provides for the possibility of such a gasp, but they did not give us :-)

      here it is debatable.
      Firstly, both the projectile and the artillery gun experience significantly greater loads when fired. Those. the gun itself is more expensive (high-quality steel, thick walls, heat treatment, coating of the barrel bore), and a shell filled with electronics that can withstand overloads of 1000g is not so cheap
      PU rockets are primitive - just a pipe with a spiral guide. The rocket starts with relatively small overloads, and therefore there is no need for an ultra-expensive elemental base of electronic devices.
      The rocket is easier to stabilize on the trajectory and directs at the target

    Nuuuuu .....! What is there to say? what As Comrade said Saakhov: “All this is right and true ... but you can look at it from a different point of view!” ... But why and for what artillery needs artillery shells with “range” of St. 100 km? As, once, they said: "To God the God; to Caesar the Caesarean!" Artillery shows its effectiveness at certain distances ... well, let it go! Artillery - weapons battlefield ... tactical combat weapon! And on the "far outskirts" ... so, for this, tactical missile systems were invented ... and OTR, by the way, is ... Not invented today! So why complicate the life of the gunners? As before, they simply lived (!) ... the artillery was regimental, divisional, corps ... so why also the "strategic" artillery, or the "tactical" artillery? Shaw ... "burn your money" and nowhere to put it? Well, after all, you can add to existing systems of barrel artillery ... for example, special MLRS with adjustable, guided missiles with a range of 100-120 km or more ...! You can, if you wish, and with armor protection (in the likeness of "Sunshine" and others ...) to bungle! Managed (correctable) RSs will be easier to develop, faster ... their efficiency may be higher (more powerful warheads ...), BCs - with you ... "I’ll carry everything with me" in a "package"; . in the "guides"! Of course, they will try to object to me that artillery guns are more "multifunctional"! That is, he likes a cheap "free-falling" shell ... he likes a more expensive artillery projectile with a solid propellant rocket; Yes, here’s a “hitch” (!) ... dreaming is not harmful, but in real life it doesn’t always happen! There is no, like Kostya Saprykin, "evidence" that "expensive" shells will be at the right time, in the right place, at the right gun! And it says that "the road is the spoon for dinner!" TRK, on ​​the other hand, is always “registered and on the mind”! And you can appoint responsible! And you’ll have to worry less that "they don’t fight in a single-breasted now ..."! And that is (it was), for example, a good howitzer "PAT", but rejected .. they say, range is not enough! We must take an example from NATO (!) ... they have gun barrels in fellow how many calibers are long! Range ... go crazy! fool And why these show-offs, if next to one organizational structure, there will be a special multi-barrel missile launcher of the type (!) MLRS with guided (correctable) ... or simply, with ANN, but long-range missiles? Let the missiles be 2-stage (like the “Shell”, “Hermes” missiles ...) ... after separating the rocket engine, the ballistics of the projectile are close to the ballistics of the fired artillery shell ... it is possible to use the principle of a turbojet projectile with engine separation. .. Units are equipped with the appropriate ACS (BIUS) ... What else is needed for the "happiness of the gunner"? what

      Exactly.
      Up to 80-90% of the firing tasks of field artillery (122 mm, 152-155 mm) are stacked at distances of up to 20-25 km. And there are a lot of such fire tasks; the solution of which (effective and timely) will require many tools. That is, the guns will therefore be busy solving problems at ranges up to 25 km, developing their own resources on them. And at longer ranges, work is foreseen, first of all, long-range MLRS! A 600-kg semi-NURS (adjustable NURS) fired from a multiple rocket launcher with the same control system as the shell from the gun will deliver to the enemy a much more significant warhead, including and cassette, and with SPBE, and thermobaric ... than 152 mm.

      Yes of course. Instead of 42kg of cast iron and explosives, a kilogram of 10-15 maximum flies to the target. Plus a drop in speed. The target shifted 10 meters to the side, and even if it is an armored personnel carrier, he does not give a damn about the fragments.

      Well, the price of the rocket in the case, which must withstand overload when fired. Surely cheaper shots will come out for the Zamvoltovsky gun, where the projectile costs more than a tomahawk?

          That's always the case. We have weapons and we are on the alert. And the enemy is fighting the spears and thumping soundly.
          The projectile flies 100km for a minute and a half or two. If there are counter-battery radars, then such small shells do not even need to be shot down. It’s easier to move aside 100 meters, time allows. And any bunker can easily survive the hit of an 85mm shell.
          A projectile is easier to shoot down than a missile. The planes for maneuvering are scanty. Mortar mines are already being knocked down almost from a smartphone with small things.

    The power of such a projectile will be scanty, since the weight of the projectile being thrown will be comparable to the weight of the explosive of a 57-mm projectile, the rest will be spent on the engine and fuel. It will only be possible to shoot such a projectile at FIXED objects, since a flight per 100 km will take more than 10 minutes. The cost of firing such a projectile will be at least comparable to the cost of launching the Smerch rocket, divided by the number of homing ammunition in the cartridge. It will be very easy to bring down such a missile defense / missile defense projectile, since it flies along a simple ballistic trajectory, and at its peak reaches the stratosphere. Well, for what purpose should such a shell be used?

    Make a range of up to 35 km for firing with a conventional projectile with acceptable dispersion (depth of the task of the day of the division with a margin). Up to 45-50 km AR is adjustable. Leave the rest to rocket artillery. To hit shells in the center of the operational zone is a perversion.

    I don’t know who to believe directly what . Our standard 152mm OFS ZOF45 with a weight of 43,56 kg has an explosive charge of 7,65 kg. This is with a maximum distance of 24,5 km and an initial speed of 810 m / s. What kind of mass-dimensional characteristics of the projectile and TTX guns should be in order to give out three times the long range and, moreover, with more explosives? I would like to look at the price tag of such a shell and compare it with ZOF45.

    If I am not mistaken, the United States has already fired test shots from the new XM1299 cannon or howitzer. Caliber 155 mm. Barrel - 58 calibers. They write that they hit the "point" target at a distance of 70+ km. I didn’t dig deeper, because I'm interested in the accuracy of hitting at such distances. It needs either Global Navigation, or a gunner, somewhere, not very far from the target. In the event of a conflict, not with the Papuans, but with a technically advanced enemy, both of these components are under attack. Global navigation can either be jammed, in a wide area from the object, or change the accuracy of tuning navigation systems over the protected area. And gunners are detected by passive means of interception and surveillance. Important objects will be guarded, and the concentration of troops will already be more likely to be dispersed over large areas - all with motors, however, when they need to, they will have time to catch up. But just shooting at the area is not it either. Of course - intelligence, and anti-intelligence is not what it used to be.

    1. The long-range unguided projectile is extremely inaccurate and pointless.
    2. A guided missile is more expensive and carries a smaller warhead than a guided missile.

    Long-range shells are stupid and / or drank.

      It seems that in direct-flow engines there is an element that is a long pipe after the combustion chamber (or swirlers, rather) and to the actual jet nozzle in which the flow parameters are stabilized (mainly) along the diameter of the flow part and afterburning of fuel.

      It seems that this telescopic effect is needed to ensure good ramjet operation while reducing ammunition dimensions.

        In the well-known designs of active rockets equipped with ramjet, nothing is pushed apart and not put forward.

        There are projects of active shells with a retractable aerodynamic needle to increase the ballistic coefficient, but in their design there is no ramjet that would obscure the shock wave from the needle.

          Such an element is present in the design of liquid ramjet engines and in jet engines with an afterburner, it also does not extend anywhere, but is necessary for a "smooth" outflow of the jet (apparently for the sake of using liquid fuel, which has more energy).

            The ramjet consists of an air intake, a diffuser, a combustion chamber and a jet nozzle.

            In the ARS, a circular air intake surrounds the diffuser - the warhead of the projectile. The combustion chamber is a conventional rocket engine with a slit charge of solid fuel, which does not include an oxidizing agent (its role is played by air), and a Laval nozzle. The charge fills the entire volume of the combustion chamber - the warhead in the folded state cannot fit there.

            Therefore, the question of the telescopic design of the projectile remains.

    Probably they can shoot. But get in? 30 km is a line of sight from a height of 30 meters (for perfectly smooth land), i.e. the ability to adjust hits from the place of the shot. 100 km will require external target designation. The advantage of an artillery shell over a rocket of equal combat effectiveness is relative cheapness. To fuss for the dubious results?

    Let me ask you a question: why such a concept can not be implemented for rockets MLRS?
    Here, there is less acceleration in the barrel (there is no need to develop electronic circuits and ramjet components that can withstand overload during acceleration in the barrel), and the shape of the projectile is aerodynamic, and at the same time, a monetary gain is possible due to the low cost of the installation, the adaptability of production to such products, etc. P.
