“The main barrel of Russian artillery”: Polish media on the modernization of “Akatsiy”


Russia began the next phase of modernization of the 2S3M Akatsiya self-propelled howitzers during the overhaul of this type of guns. These events are part of a program to upgrade old artillery pieces.


As the contractor of the Ministry of Defense explains, improved howitzers will receive, in particular, a new communication system, foreign components will be replaced with Russian counterparts with better characteristics, a new chassis, created on the current base, is provided.

According to the Polish edition of Defense24, 2C3, Acacia was developed by Soviet engineers at the turn of the 1960s - 1970s. She supplemented the “Carnations” available in the artillery units of 2C1. In the late 1970s, these systems underwent modernization to the standard 2C3M, and then 2C3M1, in the framework of which they received a new communication and fire control system, which made it possible, in particular, to increase the rate of fire.

In 2004-2009, part of the "Acacia" was improved to the level of 2C3M2. The mass of the modernized system is 27 tons, and the effective fire range is from 17 to 20 km, depending on the type of ammunition.

According to Defense24, at present, despite the expiration of almost half a century since the start of production, the 2C3 Acacia, along with the 2C1 Gvozdika, is still the main receiver artillery system in service with the Russian army. Despite plans to introduce 2C35 Coalition-SV and Msta-SM2 self-propelled products, these systems are currently undergoing systematic modernization aimed at maximizing their technical qualities and adapting to the requirements of modern combat.

These measures allow you to combine quality with quantity, as well as maintain the resource of artillery systems.

    The potential of Acacia, of course, is not unlimited, and I think it is already coming to an end.
    Installation did its job. The next step is a gradual replacement with the above new systems.

        I agree. Especially when you consider the fact that
        not modernized "Acacia" and "Carnations"

          the Poles wrote everything correctly, 800 Acacia we have less than 700 self-propelled howitzers in the caliber 152/203 mm, so in fact there is no escape from Acacia, and according to the logic of artillery there is always something to hit at a distance of 20 km .. It was optimal to deal with the withdrawal of towed artillery for the state in favor of a self-propelled tracked or wheeled ..

The acacia needs to be thrown out because it is "out of date", and the suicides who cannon ride the truck need to be left .. they have the same "purpose" .. and what purpose? Yes the same thing! Shoot the enemy, before Beshki were because it’s cheap and angrily, And now what is the problem to replace?

                Stupid question. Why throw it away? But in the line units and formations of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, it does not belong to her; Akacia ceased to arrange in the 70s, so Msta-S was developed in the 80s to replace it, the collapse of the Union prevented rearmament ....

                I won’t write anything about the difference between self-propelled and towed barreled field artillery. this discussion will not apply to this article, but there will be a reason for stupid idle talk and insults .... try to keep within the framework of the topic of the article under discussion and not go into flood and trolling ...

                  this is not a flood — it is a fact — in addition to several narrow-profile places — towed artillery is a set of a truck + a gun + a suicide squad who will die when they meet an enemy who heard about counter-battery combat. Regarding the "take and replace", it sounds very nice when you write on the Internet, But in reality, replacing 2 guns is an unrealistic task for a short period of time, that's why the modernization potential of self-propelled guns is used, it's like upgrading a BMP-000m to someone it like, but it’s better than the holy "no dick on"

            20 km is all. The firing position area for Acacia is 6-8 km from the front edge. 20 - 8 = 12 km. But it’s in a straight line, and with a twist clean 8-10 km from the front edge.

                The problem including The Msta-S that was created in the early 80s (!) To replace the Acacia itself is already outdated (therefore, it developed the Coalition to replace all 155th self-propelled guns), the problem including “Acacia” is no longer being produced, and the number of “Msta-S” has been sufficiently produced only for peacetime connections, if you need to form new connections they will have to be equipped with old “Acacias” in storage ...

      At the training grounds for familiarization with conscripts it is just more expedient to use and tackle Acacia in order to preserve the resource of new systems. And already on the "Mstu" transplanted with some experience.

      You are right, time and change is moving fast and fast (especially in military affairs) ... To dream, (it is not harmful to dream): using artillery in the new conditions of reconnaissance and counter-battery and other battles, new requirements REQUIRED for victory are emerging. Firstly, mobility and secrecy, that is, to use all possibilities, from thermal and visual masking (right up to chameleons being thermally insulated from pinpointing to inflatable "warmed-luminous" self-propelled distracting layouts, etc. Secondly, combat use without a crew version. - get to the position (for the pilot crew), and automated loading and guidance of battery guns by target designation (there is already a complex with UAVs, air, satellite and other assistants in the network centric version). Processing targets with multi-burst simultaneously covering the target with HIGH-Precision ammunition and confirming the completion of the task. Further, "hands to feet" and separation from camouflaged positions. Precision, time of action, camouflage and mobility become the main criteria ... As for crewlessness, so the crews are present at a distance during combat use, first the closest, then everything moves away ... New weapons and capabilities are always a significant part of victory ...

                  Take, for example, a standard target, a platoon stronghold. Now it’s enough to determine the coordinates of at least two point targets, and after one and a half to two minutes open fire.
                  You suggest that you slowly obtain the coordinates of dozens of individual targets, followed by defeat. That is, the time spent will increase by orders of magnitude. And the safety of their infantry is the other way around.

            The tasks are different. In war conditions, the defeat of the exit strongholds requires a certain amount of ammunition ... at least some. And you will spend them anyway. Counter-battery struggle is another matter. And the use of UAVs dramatically increases the accuracy of conventional shells

      I’m not an artilleryman, but again we are looking at the West - maybe it’s not worthwhile to “lengthen”

        Yes of course. And the dispersion is higher. And the projectile’s flight time to the target becomes very long.
        If the target moves, how can it be without using the projectile guidance system with the target’s illumination? Well, the wear of a long barrel with a high initial velocity of the projectile, I add, an expensive barrel, is great. Friction ... there's no getting anywhere ... tongue

          If the barrel is longer, then at the same range the dispersion will be less. Accuracy is higher.

            I'm generally talking about wear. And accuracy ... you prepare data on long-range shooting, they give you "meteo-average", and there winds at different heights of different strengths and in different directions, air temperature (and density too) ... Then you cook for 15 km - a hundred meters scatter can happen. No adjustment and don’t dream of getting there! And at 30? There the height of the projectile trajectory is even higher. I'll tell you a secret, even the temperature of the charge matters, as well as the number of shells fired from the barrel and the rate of fire! The trunk warms up, and expands. A very complex and exact science is artillery. Even barrel wear must be considered!

Even the shell and charge in the MSTA-S are put on a special conveyor from the ground, and not like on Acacia through the door in the stern. In the meantime, the loader himself puts the shell on the tray and the charge is semi-automatic loading. And the conversation is over. Your constructive part is ZERO.

      The trunks will change, chassis, control system, automatic loader.

      About the fact that the trunks will change a word in the article, but this is important ... but meanwhile:
      The design and manufacture of the first prototypes of the artillery unit of the 152-mm self-propelled howitzer 2C3 “Acacia” took place in Sverdlovsk, in OKB-9 plant them. M.I. Kalinina, and the chassis - at the Uraltransmash plant. The artillery unit of the self-propelled gun was developed on the basis of the 152-mm towed gun-howitzer D-20.

      https://topwar.ru/4415-akaciya-152-mm-samohodnaya-gaubica.html
      This 152-mm howitzer was developed after the end of the Second World War (1941-1945)., but the industrial production of gun-howitzers began only in the early 1950s, and the gun was first shown in the 55th

      https://topwar.ru/17653-152-millimetrovaya-pushka-gaubica-d-20-52-p-546.html
      Well, and with whom will Acacia compete in the European theater, except that with the British AS-90 (so they are already moving to update their self-propelled artillery, provided that their presence on the mainland, unlike the XB, is minimal) ...
      Meanwhile:
      At the beginning of the 80's GRAU issued led L.I. Gorlitsky Design Bureau of the Ural Transport Engineering Plant (UZTM) in Sverdlovsk new requirements for a 152 mm self-propelled howitzer for replacement in the troops of the howitzer 2S3 "Acacia". In 1989 year new self-propelled gun was adopted artillery regiments of motorized rifle and tank divisions of the Soviet army

      https://topwar.ru/4127-152-mm-samoxodnaya-gaubica-2s19-msta-s.html
      The USSR collapsed, so the rearmament did not work ...
      According to the Wiki, the Russian Federation’s armament is worth 500 Msta-S and 800 Akatsia, the proportion of the former will apparently gradually increase, due to the storage of the latter, and not due to the modernization of the former and production of "Coalition"
      Regarding the Coalition
      "We expect that after choosing a platform The Coalition will become the main artillery system, displacing the Mstu-S, Akatsiya and other 152 mm caliber installations- said the representative of Petrel. Coalition-SV installations will undergo production tests in 2013, and state tests in 2014. Wherein installation "Msta-S", which are now rearming the army, by 2020 morally obsolete.

      https://topwar.ru/28168-sau-koaliciya-sv-koaliciya-sv-ksh-logicheskie-vyvody.html
      Article 2013
      Firstly, somewhere we already read it, secondly why now I’m modernizing Acacia without changing the trunk (which is almost 70 years old), even if Msta-S, which is being replaced by it, is morally obsolete today?
      About the "Carnation":
      Serial production of the 122 mm 2C1 self-propelled howitzer continues. 2C1 "Carnation" at one time entered service with all the armies of the Warsaw Pact countries (except Romania). After the unification of Germany, the 374 2C1 received the Bundeswehr. "Carnation" is in service with the CIS armies today, including in the Belarusian army. This type of machine is in service with the ground forces of Algeria, Angola, Bulgaria, Hungary, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Poland, Russia, Syria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Ethiopia and the former Yugoslavia.

      https://topwar.ru/4396-samohodnaya-gvozdika.html
      According to the Wiki, in service with the SV (probably there are a lot of them as part of the Airborne Forces, MP and ROSGVARDII) in total - 150 units
      She has developed a 120-mm Hosta self-propelled gun-howitzer-mortar 2S34 to replace it ... however, a full replacement did not work ...

      https://topwar.ru/78922-samohodnoe-artilleriyskoe-orudie-2s34-hosta.html
      ... in service with the RF NE - 50 units. and there will be no more, and here's why:
      According to the domestic press, a new self-propelled gun during the tests showed insufficient stability and rate of fire. So, due to the use of the old chassis, which was developed without taking into account the features of the new weapon, the Khosta Joint-Stock Company was swinging during firing with high elevation angles, which affected the accuracy of the fire. Similar problems were mainly observed when shooting in the “mortar” mode, since the recoil in this case is higher and has its own specifics of distribution over the machine’s units.
      The lack of stability of the chassis also affected the rate of fire. Due to the need to make new amendments and difficulties with loading the guns in a swinging machine during the tests, it was possible to fire at a rate of no more than 3-4 rounds per minute. For comparison, the towed 120 mm 2C12 Sani mortar, due to a more correct distribution of the recoil momentum, is capable of producing up to 10-12 rounds per minute. It was reported that due to identified problems the Ministry of Defense does not plan to purchase new self-propelled guns 2S34.

      https://topwar.ru/78922-samohodnoe-artilleriyskoe-orudie-2s34-hosta.html
      And what about them (having "Carnations" in service):
      ..... the Finnish army is armed with Soviet self-propelled guns 2S1 Gvozdika in the amount of about 36 units. And it was these models that were decided to be replaced by more modern ones, which will be the South Korean K9 Thunder, manufactured by Samsung Techwin.
      Of course, the difference between the devices is significant. “Clove” has a caliber of 122 mm, “Thunder” - 155 mm. South Korean howitzer hits a distance of 50 km and uses high-precision Excalibur shells according to the classification "run away horseradish." In addition, the K-9 will be modernized, after which a crew of only 2 people will be needed to service them.

          "Carnation" is air transportable, that is, it can be transported by air An-12, IL-76, An-124. To reduce the height of self-propelled guns, track rollers from second to seventh during transportation can be lifted and secured using special devices.

    In our 131 msd in the artillery regiment, such "main trunks" were back in the 80s. I would like to know the opinion of those who participated in modern combat. Does the Soviet development of the 70s meet the requirements of modern combat?
    This continuous modernization of Soviet artillery systems, aircraft, ships, tanks, casts a shadow of doubt on the words:

    How many “galoshes” can be modernized? Here you either need to present your modern "boots-walkers" to the world, or pay tribute to Soviet science, engineering and production ...
    Cabbage, of course, is a good thing, but you need to keep meat snacks in the house! 24 km is great. But the “coalition” 80 km with “a system of automated control of the processes of guiding the guns, target selection, navigation and positioning self-propelled guns” is much more pleasant for modern combat.

        .these systems are currently undergoing systematic modernizationaimed at maximizing their technical qualities and adaptation to the requirements of modern combat.

        I don’t even know if it’s worthwhile to develop a sniper rifle with a range of 7 km for the conditions of modern combat or to rely on a bayonet? request
        All of these posts, praising the half-century-long quality of the installation, smack of hypocrisy. I understand when commanders of artillery units and subunits talk about this. At one time, the Tsar Cannon inspired fear in the adversary. As for the tactics of modern combat, I venture to suggest that not everyone dares to conduct artillery preparation, knowing that a minute after the first volley, return fire will "cover" him.
        That is why the increased range of the new self-propelled guns allows them to leave their firing positions and makes it difficult to detect guns (batteries, installations) ...
        None of them run in bast shoes or sneakers, sneakers prefer. And then the praises of eternal modernization are sung.

          I think it’s not worth exaggerating, the option "in a minute" is too optimistic, I would even suggest it is fantastic / cowardly. The probability in 2-3 minutes is 2-3%, in 5 minutes 10-20%, and so on. Moreover, after 1-2 retaliatory strikes there will be a hunt for reconnaissance stations art. fire and batteries in response. And I think in this area they will disappear for a long time, no matter what opponent confronts. Of course I’m a jacket, but I understand that the proposal is to switch to new self-propelled guns / tanks / planes ... it also sounds naive as "And let's all transfer to new Mercs / Audi / Aurus ...".

        24 km is great. But the “coalition” 80 km

        There are tasks for Acacia, while the “coalition 80 km” have their own.

        You are not aware that, for example, "Msta-S" was created to replacerather than reinforcing Acacia ....
        The "coalition" was supposed to replace all 152 mm self-propelled guns ....

      Does the Soviet development of the 70s meet the requirements of modern combat?

      No.
      Even then they lagged behind the adversary primarily in terms of controllability. An analogue of the NATO "Takfaer" in the USSR was never done.
      That is, in a real clash, we would lose a lot of artillery in the counter-battery.

      Well, the Amerov’s paladin is also in the 60s and they’re using nothing, haven’t replaced it yet, at least a couple of times they tried but the garbage came out, or are you those who, if we have something, fu is bad, lagged, etc., and if they have something else , you need to understand this, I hope not so

    If the barrel is longer, then at the same range the dispersion will be less. Accuracy is higher.

    Yes? How is this related?

    Acacia - manual loading, Msta - automatic machine the size of a barn.

    Both this and that - the last century. MLRS with controlled RS - our everything.

    Guys, of course, this is not a question for you, but why can’t you change the trunk to a longer one? Of course, this will lead to the processing of the entire receiver group and recoil devices, but it is much cheaper than making and producing new self-propelled guns from scratch. The States are doing just that with their M109. For the umpteenth time, lengthen the barrel and divide the automatic loading system and the new FCS ...

      As well as the weight distribution of the tower, the modernization of the rotary mechanism, the increase in the load on the chassis during the shot (greater recoil) with its subsequent modernization. The internal habitable volume will also change and it will be necessary to process it. An increase in the internal inhabited volume will require an increase in the weight of the reservation ... All of the above will increase the weight of the machine, which will require processing of the engine and transmission. And so in a circle.

    1-2 guns are sufficient with up to 10-15 rounds being used for simultaneously identified targets (as with a rifle one, quick shooting of clips and leaving) ... Today, one or two guns are always preferable to 4-6 or more without high-precision ammunition in action .. .

    And you some new word in military affairs. Let me have 6 guns, and you have 2 and we will fight.
    Modern artillery combat is primarily a massive application in a short time. so that the answer does not have time to fly. Therefore 8 will always be better than 4

    To drag such a "fool" into the mountains is also a "special pleasure"

    There are tasks for artillery, there are tasks for missile forces, there are tasks for aviation. In any case, the commander must make such a decision that provides the most optimal result with minimal losses.

    No, no optimization is being done. There is no particular choice. A decision is made that ensures the fulfillment of the task with cash. They don’t think about losses. As you have to. With a normal task and normal luck, the losses should not be too much.

    In our 131 msd in the artillery regiment, such "main trunks" were back in the 80s. I would like to know the opinion of those who participated in modern combat. Does the Soviet development of the 70s meet the requirements of modern combat?
    This continuous modernization of Soviet artillery systems, aircraft, ships, tanks, casts a shadow of doubt on the words:

    How many “galoshes” can be modernized? Here you either need to present your modern "boots-walkers" to the world, or pay tribute to Soviet science, engineering and production ...
    Cabbage, of course, is a good thing, but you need to keep meat snacks in the house! 24 km is great. But the “coalition” 80 km with “a system of automated control of the processes of guiding the guns, target selection, navigation and positioning self-propelled guns” is much more pleasant for modern combat.
    hi

    Why do divisional trunks 80 km? What are his tasks at such a depth? Let the karmarm take care of this. He has aviation and heavy artillery regiments. A division commander and 13 km is enough. Positions 3-5 km from the front line, so his artillery at a depth of 8-10 will be able to work, in the depths of the opposing division. Why does he need 80 km?

      Please do not forbid! This site is very interesting to me, I’ve been reading "from cover to cover" for several years now! Especially about artillery. The artilleryman himself, the captain of the reserve. Only now I dared to make a few comments, if I mixed something up, so the first time, I’ll fix it! Greetings

    "Here Ostap suffered" ... The usual battery artillery unit, with precision, adjusting fire and rate of fire, 1-2 guns are sufficient with up to 10-15 shots at targets simultaneously identified (as with a rifle - quick firing of clips and leaving). .. Today, one or two guns are always preferable to 4-6 or more without high-precision ammunition in action ... The artillery method of delivering ammunition to the target is distinguished by its low cost, with the introduction of adjustable ammunition, a "golden" combination of price and quality of fire impact is created - a high-precision ammunition and creates such a combination. According to this, ALL artillery weapons should switch to high-precision ammunition ...

    And who will shoot at flat targets? And the shaft in front of his infantry (over another's counterattack), who will set? Which systems do not have high precision? Everyone has it. Even sometimes they find goals for them :) Well, for example, someone else's NP. Further - from 1/4 to 2 ammunition, runaway, on company and platoon points, on areas of concentration, advancement, on other people's AOP. Hundreds of boxes, dozens of tons ... On hand, for a combat day :)

    howitzers 2S3M "Acacia" during the overhaul of guns of this type

    gun or howitzer ??

    Roman, hello, before the USSR, the USSR had guns and howitzers before 1991, but the bottom line ... Maybe it’s just economically squeezing liberoids? And then ideologically (to prohibit the adoption of Russian children to all liberals, to prohibit surrogate motherhood)
