The party of advanced self-propelled guns Msta-S entered the 49th Army of the Southern Military District

A batch of advanced 152 mm self-propelled artillery mounts (self-propelled guns) 2S19M2 Msta-S entered the artillery units of the 49th combined arms army of the Southern Military District as part of the re-equipment program. This was reported by the press service of the Southern Military District.


According to a widespread press release, two artillery batteries from the 49th combined arms army were re-equipped with new self-propelled guns capable of firing with Krasnopol high-precision guided munitions.

As the press service explained, the advanced MSTA-S self-propelled guns have significant design differences from the previous modification of the artillery installation: they have a new automated fire control system that can significantly increase the rate of fire, there is the possibility of using digital electronic maps, which significantly speeds up orientation on the ground.

152-mm ACS "Msta-S" is equipped with a programmable charging complex. The maximum firing range is 29 km. Ammunition - 50 shells. Speed ​​- up to 60 km / h, power reserve - more than 600 km. Upgraded SAUs can fire with high-explosive, active-rocket jamming projectiles, as well as Krasnopole precision-guided munitions.

The 152-mm howitzer Msta-S was put into service in 1989. It was created by the OKB-3 team under the leadership of the chief designer Yuri Tomashov. Its creation was awarded the Lenin and State Prizes of the USSR. Designed for the destruction of manpower, tactical nuclear weapons, artillery batteries, armored vehicles, anti-tank and air defense systems, as well as for the destruction of field fortifications and enemy control posts. Fire can be conducted on observable and unobservable targets from closed positions and direct fire. When firing, both ammunition shots and those fed from the ground are used.

              In secret, but you don’t tell anyone!
              “In order to stabilize on the trajectory, the projectile rotates in flight. To obtain the required roll speed (6-10 r / s) when the projectile leaves the gun’s barrel and to prevent the breakthrough of gases forward when it moves in the barrel, a sliding (turning) shutter is used. Necessary "the angular velocity of rotation of the projectile on the trajectory is supported by stabilizers made in a cross-shaped pattern and installed at an angle relative to the longitudinal axis of the projectile in its tail."

                  Well, we’ll check the box and that I’m familiarized with the "non-disclosure" list.
                  Thought for yourself "google."
                  On the old version of the projectile (collapsible), the leading "plastic belt" was clearly visible. The new one is also visible - but in color.
                  ps sometimes they make the block of uncontrolled stabilizers rotate itself in flight.

          Ammunition can be fired from a rifled gun so that it does not rotate. But from the smoothbore, on the contrary, it will not work.
          In general, you should spend money on modernization if you need to rivet 2s35, and these podshamanit to Syria. Old SPGs it's time to change! In Turks up to 50km their scandal pounds.

            So with 2S19M2 "over 40 kilometers." And there are still reserves. Why for some reason change the excellent modern self-propelled guns, which can be safely put on a par with the K-9 and Pzh-2000

          The principle is as follows. The projectile before the shot is assembled in two parts: The projectile itself and the propulsion system. That the shell would not rotate on its body the leading belt (see wiki) sliding i.e. the shell does not spin. Before firing, the area of ​​the alleged appearance of targets is divided into sections of approximately 400 by 400 m at a distance of 3 km from the front edge and beyond. The centers of these sites produce data. The product is used at the very beginning of the battle, until smoke from burning equipment, grass and buildings has risen, otherwise it will be difficult for the laser to give target designation. The lower edge of the clouds should not be lower than 400m, otherwise the optical element will not have time to detect the illuminated target and the projectile will fly into milk. When enemy tanks appear in the area of ​​prepared areas, the operator determines which area the tanks are approaching and reports to the firing position. At the firing position, 1-2 guns are pointing at this site. On shells with a special key, the settings are set corresponding to the firing range. These settings determine whether all propellant in the propulsion system will burn out or some. On the projectile set the time of firing the ballistic tip. The projectile (which is two times longer than a conventional projectile) is charged manually (MSTA-S automatic loading), then the charge. When the selected tank approaches a point close to the center of the site, the operator gives a command to the firing position Fire! and launches a rangefinder-designator with a set deceleration for flight time. After the shot, the projectile flies out of the barrel and releases stabilizing wings and rudders from the body. The propulsion system fulfills the set time. The projectile starts the battery and the control unit. At the set time, the ballistic tip is shot back and the optical element begins to scan the area for lighting. Having seen the target, the OE gives a command to the control unit, and that one to the steering wings. The projectile flies slightly spinning and as if floating. When approaching the target, the projectile makes a "slide" and hits the target 4 m behind the spotlight ie to where the tank’s engine is. Each projectile and rangefinder has its own code installed where necessary. Therefore, the "alien" projectile will not fly up to highlight this rangefinder. If necessary, you can shoot two shells at once in one gulp at a particularly important target (with the same code).

      Threaded. Krasnopol to such a caliber and systems was created, so it works fine - if only people were prepared. But the fact that only two batteries are needed is for the armed men to tear off piers. Only to the division. And only with the appropriate control machines. Otherwise, there is no sense in these self-propelled guns and in these economic costs.

      Next year, state tests of the Coalition self-propelled guns should be completed. That would be to launch it in mass production.

      In terms of firing a conventional projectile, which reaches 40 km, our self-propelled guns significantly outperformed the long-range German Panzerhaubitze 2000, which hit 30 km. The pride of the United States M109A7 "Paladin" and does shoot at only 22 km. Today, only the French Caesar self-propelled guns, capable of hitting targets at a distance of 42 km, can be compared with the Russian Coalition, but not with conventional, but with active-rocket shells.

        I agree, I was interested in the news that the Coalition will be adopted on the basis of the 90th. So, there will be a massive purchase of 90M, Armata, cars on its chassis, while they arrive in small batches.

          "Coalition" on its own, separately developed base. Like all other Russian and Soviet post-war self-propelled guns.

              This is a brand new chassis with bulletproof armor. Created using components and assemblies of tanks.

                Everything inside the hull is re-planned, the crew is in a “capsule” as in “Armata”. The frontal armor is lightened, but in essence it is the same 90A as the Msta at 72m. You could say that the Coalition’s chassis is based on 90A. But the 90th is the 90th. And yes, I’ll supplement it. Recently I read an interview with the general director for the assembly of the Coalition, which stated in plain text, the first copies were assembled on the 90A chassis, and further production is planned on this chassis. The base of T14 is considered in the future. They want to achieve unification with tanks of the 90s family.

        The PzH 2000 is capable of firing three shells in nine seconds or ten in 56 seconds at a range of up to 30 km. The howitzer holds a world record - at a firing range in South Africa, she fired 56 km with a V-LAP (active-rocket projectile with improved aerodynamics).
        In terms of indicators, the PzH 2000 is considered the most advanced serial self-propelled gun in the world.

          And 6 trunks (up to 152 mm) seem to be optimal for the battery, all the same more often we work as divisions.

          They want a coalition from a division and higher, and the MSTA to a brigade (regiment).
          The coalition is a promising reality, the MSTA is a real prospect.

            Dispersed.
            In the "heavy" brigade 3 batteries of 6 self-propelled guns
            The Stryker brigade has 3 batteries of 6 M777 each
            in the "light" two batteries of 6 105 mm M119 and one battery M777
            At the level of the division of the artillery barrels left, only HIMARS / M270

            If intended for military use in the mountains, reduced to four-equipment. Like in 58 a

              Well, in the mountains, not only the state, there should be specialized weapons (82 mm mortars, 107 mm guns)

                The mortars were just 82 mm. Two platoons of "Trays" and a platoon of "Cornflowers"

    The 152-mm self-propelled artillery system Msta-S is equipped with a programmable loading system. Maximum firing range - 29 km. Ammunition - 50 shells. Speed ​​- up to 60 km / h, power reserve - more than 600 km. Upgraded self-propelled guns can fire high-explosive, active-reactive jamming shells, as well as high-precision guided ammunition Krasnopol.

    This is what our artillery in the army should be like.
    You can forget about the old, towed, not capable of moving artillery on your own. She is not a tenant on the battlefield. In modern warfare - artillery mobility is the key to its survival.

    . The projectile starts the battery and the control unit. At the set time, the ballistic tip is shot back and the optical element begins to scan the area for lighting. Having seen the target, the OE gives a command to the control unit, and that one to the steering wings. The projectile flies slightly spinning and as if floating. When approaching the target, the projectile makes a "slide" and hits the target 4 m behind the spotlight ie to where the tank’s engine is.

    If the backlight works all the time, then the aerosol is shot back by the irradiation sensor.
    The whole ficus picus is that the laser rangefinder-target indicator transmits the coordinates of the target in passive mode to the self-propelled guns. the system calculates the time of approach to the target. Between the scout with the range finder and self-propelled guns - two-way radio communication (packet short-pulse to avoid opening the system by the reb) after readiness, a shot is fired at the coordinates. When approaching a projectile in 1,5 sec. the backlight turns on. On the descending section of the trajectory, the projectile maneuvers and hits the reflected beam.

    Krasnopol showed a very high accuracy hit. In real combat conditions, very often a shell gets into the body of an illuminated tank. Even if the projectile hits 1-2 m from the side, the penetration of the side is almost guaranteed. In the buildings and say nothing. the Americans were very unpleasantly surprised by the performance of Krasnopol according to the results of the mess near Ilovaisk and the results of work in Syria on proud homeless people. In Idlib, it looks like the M60 and M113 also flew somewhat.

    The most interesting thing is that Krasnopol began to be stamped in the late 80s and then made a big pile. The shell was like a Lada - i.e. approximately 10K greens. If the price is now comparable, then our Krasnopole costs an order of magnitude less than Amer's Escalibur.

    Ahhhh, where would there be hundreds of units of the Coalition NE? They just said for a long time what will go into service?)))
    On March 11, 2016, Colonel Igor Muginov, on behalf of the Western Military District, announced that before the end of 2016 the first batch of self-propelled guns 2S35 “Coalition-SV” will be put into service.

    Interspecies artillery complex "Coalition-SV" will begin to enter the troops in series.

    - explained the Chief of the Missile Forces and Artillery of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Matveevsky, talking about plans for the year before 2020.
