The first modernized self-propelled gun 2S7M Malka went to the troops

The first modernized 2S7M Malka self-propelled gun was handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defense. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.


As previously reported, the modernization of Malki was carried out at Uraltransmash (part of UVZ). At the self-propelled guns, work was carried out to replace the gearbox, distribution mechanisms and power supply units. Surveillance devices and guidance system, intercom equipment and radio station were replaced. Updated anti-nuclear defense complex. There was a possibility of aiming at the target with the help of UAVs.

The upgraded machine passed all the required tests, the first updated model of self-propelled guns was ready to be sent to the troops in early April of this year. The company declares its readiness for serial modernization of the existing fleet of self-propelled guns "Malka".

It is worth noting that the 2S7M Malka, having a 2 mm gun caliber (44A203), is capable of firing various types of ammunition, including active-reactive and special ammunition with a nuclear warhead.

Large-caliber self-propelled guns at one time were developed as a means of possible tactical nuclear strike. The first modification - 2C7 "Peony" - has been in operation since 1975, the upgraded version - 2C7M - since 1986.

For reference: the 2S7M Malka combat mass in the previous layout was 46,5 tons, the crew was 6 people, the R-173 radio station was used, the transported ammunition was 8 rounds, and the self-propelled gun was put into combat position for 7 minutes.

    Beauty, you can’t say otherwise. That would be to experience modernization on the enemies in Syria.

      What is so limited is possible on banderlogs in the Donbass. They should like it.

        They just use 203mm for the DNI and LC.

            To do this, you need to enter them there .... but you can’t hide them, especially since they do not shoot their opponents.

        The fact is that the Armed Forces of Ukraine already used “Peonies” in the Donbass ... By the way, there was a video on the Internet where you could see 3 “Peonies” “rolling” along city streets in a city controlled by militias (!) ... "voice-over" comments that these "Peonies" are "squeezed" from the APU! It is possible that this was during the "Debaltsev events"!

          Thanks to these Peonies, and finally managed to take the Donetsk airport. Their powerful shells literally pierced through the floors of the terminal and other buildings, eventually destroying them completely. So, they have already contributed to that war.

            I'm afraid this is impossible.
            "Malka" is a gun. The trajectory will not allow.

            Have you accidentally mixed up with Tulip? Here he is "punching floors" is quite capable.

    and special nuclear warhead munitions.

    If placed in the Kaliningrad region, NATO will say that Russia started the war.

      Why say so? They already showed satellite images with bases for storing nuclear weapons in the Kaliningrad region, so we already started the war with their words.

      They will not say that the CFE Treaty has been suspended on our part, until its implementation by NATO countries.

      Nah ... but what? request "They're not fighting in single-breasted now!" no Here is another, maybe, wait for the promised corrected (guided) artillery shells, so finally ...: "Malbrook was going on a campaign ..."! fellow

        A direct weapon cannot work with UAVs. Because it is useless.

        The only possible option is firing UAS (CAS) Then under "The ability to aim at a target using UAVs“we could understand the installation of synchronization equipment on the gun. It sends a“ shot ”command to the UAV to count the delay in turning on the target’s backlight

        But only in the 203 mm caliber do we have neither UAS nor CAS

          So I “commented”, in the sense that the “link” would be most effective: UAV reconnaissance and guidance + guided (correctable) artillery shells! But....! UAVs and tepericha will be “useful” ... so far without UAS! And why did you decide "suddenly" that not? Indeed, now, for example, "live" art.fire spotters are used! And the UAV, "adapted" for the remote transmission of target designations, is quite an analogue of the artillery corrector!

            No. The most effective UAV operation in the firing unit. The size of not less than a fire platoon. A better division

      Why such a smiley face? Malkam, like the Orlans, is a dowry for intelligence. Or does it not work?

        Not the "little ones." And to artillery units.
        Accordingly, no changes in the Malki hardware can be made so that "The ability to aim at a target using UAVs"

        To do this, it is enough for the UAV operator to be in touch with the commander of the artillery unit, the fire control center of the division or SOB.

          Well, I did not mean separate guns but units. My eyes, dear. Which are always there and are not distracted by something more, according to the command, important. With which I worked out in exercises. This is good.

                  Malki as a complex. There you get a modern topographic location, communications, your own intelligence. There was infa that his Zoo will be. But this seems to be only in Kalininrad. Or they will start from Kaliningrad, but everyone will. Infa sketchy but write quite often. I hope not only write but also do. I think for a counter-battery they will look for targets at the zoo, and with the eagles they will specify the result of the fire and look for those who managed to leave.

    In my opinion it is very healthy and effective.

    Is there a precision projectile for this self-propelled gun?
