The timing of the start of state tests of the ACS 2S43 "Malva"

The newest self-propelled artillery gun (SAO) 2S43 "Malva" will enter the state testing stage next year, 2022. Reported by "RIA News"with reference to a source in the military-industrial complex.


According to the source, in 2021, the prototype of the CAO will undergo acceptance tests, during which the compliance of the weapon with the requirements of the technical task will be confirmed. State tests are scheduled for 2022.

Acceptance tests will take place in 2021 (...) in case of a positive result, the CAO will be admitted to state tests, the beginning of which is tentatively scheduled for the first quarter of 2022

- said the source.

As part of acceptance tests, which will begin in the spring or summer of this year, "Malva" must shoot a certain number of shells, as well as undergo tests of the chassis on various soils. Factory tests of the CAO were completed at the end of 2020.

SAO 2S43 "Malva" is being developed by the Central Research Institute "Burevestnik" within the framework of the ROC "Sketch". For the first time, the howitzer was presented in 2019 behind closed doors, details of the development are not provided.

It is known that the 152-mm 2A64 cannon used in the Msta-S self-propelled guns is used as a firing component at Malva. It is possible to install an upgraded version of this gun, but the data is missing due to the secrecy of the development. The transportable ammunition load of the howitzer is 30 rounds, the weight of the CAO is 32 tons. The chassis of the "Malva" is the BAZ-6010-027 all-terrain vehicle with an 8x8 wheel arrangement manufactured by the Bryansk Automobile Plant.

As previously reported, in the framework of the R&D project “Sketch” a whole flower garden is being developed, which, in addition to “Mallow”, includes 120-mm Flook SAO on the Ural-VV chassis, 120 mm Arctic Magnolia self-propelled guns on the chassis of a two-link tractor DT-30MP and 82-mm mortar "Drok" on the chassis "Typhoon-VDV".

            Local nicknames do not always permeate the "neighbors". For example, the An-24 has at least 3 nicknames and some of them have a strictly local distribution.

        And Malva fell in love with the evil Buratina. And after nine months they had a son. Affectionate to those who shoot from him, hateful to those who throw sand at his friends. His parents called him Buratinoid. That's the end of the fairy tale, who read to the end the fellow. drinks

      Yes, the barrel is long, but they could not place it above the cockpit. It can be seen that the gun was placed as low as possible, apparently they considered that it was cheaper to make a long base than the higher the gun was placed.

          Yes, it is unlikely that a maximum of half a meter will not be a plus to fit into the overall dimensions, to the eye the ACS will be lower than the "Thor".

            The picture shows the "Malva" with the 2A64 cannon, which differs from the 2A65 only in the presence of an ejector (information from Vicki). But she does not need an ejector in this configuration, and it is possible that it will go into the series with the 2A65 barrel, and at the moment it is being made 53 caliber long, in contrast to the MSTA-S barrel, which is 47 calibers long.
            PS
            I came across information that when upgrading to the ACS "MSTA-S" they began to put the same on 53 caliber.

        The thing is not in height, but in the maximum displacement to the outriggers, so that during the shots there is no load on the chassis, and there is no problem to make stamping in the cockpit.

          Only this on Malva for some reason is not. And in the photo in your comment, the gun is too high, and the supports are much more powerful and longer, which means more expensive, and the firing sector will obviously be smaller. Mallow looks more optimal.

            They are all plus or minus the same, the nuances in the loading system, what it is in the mallow, is not yet clear

          This, apparently, hit the barrel of the "Coalition" ..... And the loading system there is usual, with the supply of a projectile and charge. Otherwise, the tower would have been erected, like on a KAMAZ ... but here everything is in the open air.

        Archer has a 52 caliber gun, self-loading, with an uninhabited tower behind. Malva, this is an outdated 42 caliber gun, without any mechanization of the loading process, but in size (and probably weight) they are really similar. Archer's chassis is a two-link vehicle that is much more maneuverable.
        Malva is rather an analogue of the French Caesar self-propelled gun, but it is much more compact and its cannon is 52 hummingbirds.

        Mallow is the perfect example of how you don't need to design cars. IMHO

              Artillery is very conservative. And the old proven weapons are still relevant now, they have been working perfectly for many decades - maybe more than planes, tanks and ships. Therefore, putting an old cannon on a new chassis is not a sin at all, but new capabilities of the artillery system.

              Hmm? Since the transition of NATO to the standard "155/52 caliber / 23 liters of volume of the charging chamber", the caliber (still imperial) in 6 "(152,4 mm) has turned into a pumpkin. Even during the design of Msta, voices sounded in the normalization of the caliber to 155-160 mm and a departure from the only remaining inch, but ran into stocks of shells / charges, saved. When designing the Coalition stepped on the same rake, unifying with old charges, clowns in uniform. As a result, the export potential is zero, systems even with a barrel length of 52 caliber inferior to the same in the firing range of 20% on average (firing range of a standard HE without a bottom gas generator is 24,5 km Msta and 30 km of the NATO art / standard

              P.S. the situation is one-on-one with the Grabinsky gun f-22, when, at the request of the GRAU, it was supposed to shoot at the planes, and work from closed positions, and be anti-tank, and all this with the old shell for the regimental gun of 1902. As a result, the Germans used the trophy with a bored charging chamber, a modernized gun carriage and rejoiced, we were on the mountain.

                  I will quote
                  From a scientific and technical point of view, the replacement of the 152,4 mm caliber with the 155 mm caliber reflects the widespread trend of the transition of weapons from outdated inch to metric with a corresponding change in tolerances and measuring instrument systems. In the domestic artillery, this tendency was clearly traced both during the Great Patriotic War and in the post-war period. All the newly introduced calibers of field and tank artillery, as well as mortars, were metric - 45, 85, 100, 115, 120, 125, 130, 140, 160, 180 and 240 mm.

                  The trend is to streamline the sizes of equipment objects by bringing them to normal series of linear sizes, whose members represent a geometric progression. The main calibers of domestic artillery 82, 100, 122, 125, 130, 203 and 240 mm are grouped around members of the normal Ra10 series according to GOST 6636-69 (the denominator of the progression is 1,2589) with a deviation not exceeding 4%. Caliber 152,4 mm is the only exception (5% deviation). When switching to 155 mm caliber, the deviation from the corresponding member of the row (160 mm) decreases to 3,5%, i.e. the general pattern is restored.
                  The transition to 155 mm caliber with a fixed value of the relative mass of the projectile gives it an increase of 6%, i.e. 2,5 kg. According to calculations, this additive, with its rational distribution between the projectile body and the explosive charge, will increase the effectiveness of the fragmentation action of the projectile by about 10%.

                    Do you understand what kind of nonsense you quoted? Are you aware that the actual geometrical dimension, the diameter of the Russian 152 mm caliber projectile is greater than the NATO standard 155 mm projectile diameter?

                      That is, the 152,4 caliber is larger than the 155 mm caliber measured using the same system? You are healthy? Is there even a word in the quote about NATO 155? There is only a justification for switching to a larger caliber that fits into a series of numbers. You have invented the word NATO for yourself, dear.

                        Whether you like it or not, you will have to upgrade for the main reason: the small volume of the charging chamber in 2c19 and others like them is 152,4. Let me remind you that the range of any NATO 52-caliber howitzer is 30% higher than the range of MSTA with an active-rocket projectile (40 km versus 30 km). Well, reduction to a normal series of numbers will give an additional, according to calculations, an increase in power of 10%. Another bonus of modernization is the introduction of combustible casings, which was tested on the export MSTE 155 NATO. This will increase the transportable ammo, increase the rate of fire, and facilitate promising AZ / MZ.

                        I agree with the range and energy of the shot. Need to work. For example, how they worked when creating the Coalition. The 10 percent increase in power from the extra 2,6mm diameter won't work. You shouldn't have thought of this for yourself. A combustible sleeve has both pros and cons. So this point needs to be thought over soberly.

                        "The transition to 155 mm caliber with a fixed value of the relative mass of the projectile gives it an increase of 6%, ie 2,5 kg. According to calculations, this additive, with its rational distribution between the projectile body and the explosive charge, will increase the effectiveness of the fragmentation action of the projectile by about 10%. At the same time, an increase in the volume of the charging chamber to the NATO standard makes it possible to significantly increase the mass of the charge and, as a consequence, increase the firing range.

                        My friend, these specialists are as ignorant as you are. I would even say the losers of the school curriculum. 47.7 circumferences by 0.013 thick by about 70 centimeters long. By some simple calculations, we teach a lesson 47.7 by 0.013 by 70 for a total of 44 cubic centimeters that will be added to the projectile. We multiply by the specific gravity of steel in the amount of 7,8 grams per cubic centimeter. Total 338 grams. How your brilliant experts were able to stretch them up to 2,5 kg, I think the story is silent. I congratulate you, citizen of the lie. Sat down in a puddle.

                        Let it be known to you that the weight of the projectile grows approximately in cubic dependence on the caliber, that is, with an increase in caliber by 1,5 times, the projectile becomes heavier by almost four times, and with a doubling - eight times. That is, an increase in caliber by 2,6 mm, or 1,706%, gives an increase in projectile mass by 4,965%, and this is a rough formula on the fingers, so 6% is more than a realistic option. Well, since you showed your inability to communicate, coupled with your lack of knowledge about the ballistics of barrel artillery and related calculations, I see no more reason with you to continue the dialogue. All the best, improve your level of knowledge, arithmetic is good, but not enough laughing

    Yeah, that's why Norway and Finland (originally taking part in the development) refused from Archer, Denmark ordered Caesars instead of Archers (although they were initially interested), and Sweden itself sat for several years without artillery at all (FH-77B was removed from service, the last were withdrawn in 2011, the first "Archers" appeared in 2014).

    It also seems to me that all the bourgeois ones will be shorter. And by design, I like Dana and Archer the most. "Dana" by the fact that everything in it is thought out precisely for the gun mount and the chassis itself was made on it, and did not take a basic sample and thought about how to mount the gun there. And the "Archer" is very

              For fear of God, the young man SG Msta-S only in 1989 was adopted by the SA.
              В 1989 year the new self-propelled gun was adopted by the artillery regiments of motorized rifle and tank divisions of the Soviet army

              https://topwar.ru/4127-152-mm-samoxodnaya-gaubica-2s19-msta-s.html
              VIKI: SG operators - outside the CIS: Venezuela, Morocco, Ethiopia.
              In the CIS countries, few were able to get it, and then most likely after the collapse of the Union - RB, RAz, Ukraine, Georgia.
              In total, 720 units were produced.
              The Msta-S SG was created to replace the Akatsiya SG, however, due to the collapse of the Union, it was not possible, what large-scale supplies abroad can we talk about if the main 152-mm SG in the RF Armed Forces is the Akatsiya SG with a gun times of the Second World War.
              BG Msta-B was put into service in 1986.
              Serial production of the towed version began in 1987... Currently, the 152-mm Msta-B howitzer is in service with the Russian army, as well as a number of post-Soviet countries - Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia and Ukraine. Howitzers managed to fight during the second Chechen war, as well as the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine in the territory of Donbass. Also, artillery systems are used in Iraq, were purchased from Russia by the government of the country to combat ISIS and in Syria.

              https://topwar.ru/101092-152-mm-buksiruemaya-gaubica-msta-b-2a65.html
              In total, 1 units were produced.
              There are also few of them in the CIS countries, the largest operator after the RF - 222 units. The Republic of Belarus and the Armed Forces of Ukraine - 130 units, it is not a fact of course that the Republic of Belarus and Ukraine could have drunk some part of them ...
              But all the same, it is clear that both the SG and BG managed to do relatively little and their small number in the CIS countries, the SGs in service with the CIS countries (except for the Russian Federation) are generally dozens ...

                  I think she is not a competitor to the German and Korean SG. She belatedly appeared in the SA, and the best quality SG "Coalition" is expensive.
                  I think the line of existing SG and BG in the RF Armed Forces will remain the same. There will be an SG on a wheelbase (because the Empireists have them) with worse performance characteristics than Western countries.
                  Ampirialists re-equip with 155-mm BG, leaving BG 105-mm only in light infantry units, and we simply sent all the BG 122-mm D-30 for storage, neither creating a replacement for it and not adopting the new BG 155-mm. ...
                  We are probably waiting for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to have "new" PA guns that are being written off soon in NATO countries - for example, the Palladin SG M109 and the SG AS90 ...., in addition to them, the Americans will put new radar serifs art. fire, ACS, and Israeli Jews drums UAVs ...

            This is all an old technique and was done according to a different TK. Their tasks were on the front line (hence the defense like a tank), where they fought against enemy armored vehicles, pillboxes, etc. direct fire. Now these tasks are being solved by tanks. Modern self-propelled guns have light armor and, as a rule, a howitzer cannon. Basically, they shoot from afar, from a canopy, and shooting outright does not make sense, since you will not get anywhere.

              With regard to modern self-propelled guns, you are not mistaken anywhere. I meant precisely the designation of the self-propelled gun, as a self-propelled installation, with the possibility of immediate opening of fire without preliminary preparation, the designation was preserved, but the tasks changed, this is what we are talking about.

    I agree with you. At Floks-e, taking into account our realities, it was necessary to round off, or create a CAO similar to the French or Israeli.
    They spent money on development, factory testing of the devil, then start whining that the company or the budget has no money.

    They had to set a task so that two CAOs would fit into a transport plane with a "jack". And then the root crop knows that they have nailed it am

    Within the framework of acceptance tests, which will begin in the spring or summer of this year,

    What kind of frivolity is this, specific dates for each stage of work must be indicated. If you tried so to speak during Stalin's time, the little head would quickly be unscrewed. And to be honest, they would be right.

    Here, there may be a mistake, no, I'm not talking about the ACS, of course, the range (concealment, withdrawal from other people's fixations) control over the target, and the quality of defeat, too many of which offer, this is both dismantling and braking for many reasons.

    I wrote that against? I just asked what its purpose is, is it to reduce the cost of the ACS? Where have I ever mentioned that this is good or bad? Just like a pack of sentries. Yes, sculpt, if there is nothing to answer, it's not a pity

    The Malva self-propelled guns have only one purpose, to replace the Msta B towed howitzer! wink

        Have you pulled the cannon? There are certain standards for deployment and collapse. At the training camp we pulled 100mm MT-12 Rapier. 3 tons of weight and 6 people calculation. And here - a 152mm long-barreled howitzer .... loading is completely manual .....

      I think that at the initial stage of any major conflict, self-propelled guns will take on the bulk of the load, and there, as the conflict (war) develops, one way or another, the use of towed guns will be required ...

    All! Obviously, the generation of millennials designed!))) Instead of Msta-b, but cheaper than the Coalition and Msta-s! With the excuses of this action sucked from what organs are unknown. Whoever was present at the positions of the arts at the time when the first response arrives, he will understand! And now she arrives literally right away! And the hell is there where you hide, even from large fragments. By analogy, we are waiting for the continuation, an intermediate option between the Su-57 and An-2, between the Armata and the UAZ, etc. ))) And so-the babakh will go, but they themselves are riveting SUCH.

    Coalition-SV-KSH is an expensive, heavy artillery unit on a cheap chassis with a narrow base and a high center of mass.
    Malva is a cheap, light artillery unit on an expensive wide chassis.
    Sometimes I can’t understand at all what is going on in the heads of designers.

        There is still a question on the bases. If I am not mistaken, there is nothing in the division at the BAZ base. And there are many KAMAZ trucks. And now the Coalition is at KAMAZ, and Msta is at the BAZ. A strange conclusion suggests itself: Koala with its 80km - for division artillery regiments, Msta with its <30km - for army artillery brigades? .. Or is it not so ???

    The chassis, like that of Malva, would be better suited for the Pantsir than the Kamaz.

    ACS "Malva" on the chassis under the OTRK looks cumbersome, I prefer the Ukrainian 2S22 "Bogdana" with 155 mm cannon. More compact and superior in caliber.

      6 by 6 is definitely worse than 8 by 8.
      NATO 155mm, no matter how smaller the domestic 152mm will be. In terms of the volume of the chamber, my grandmother told me for two what trunk would weigh on Malva. If from the coalition, then Bogdana is crying on the sidelines.

        There is a Caesar on both 6x6 and 8x8 ... but the cross-country ability is different for the chassis ... 155 and 152 are equal calibers ... and the weight of the gun depends on the length of the barrel and the size of the breech, the range and accuracy of the gun depend on this. And so, you can put the M30 152mm. It is even more compact and KRAZ 4x4 will do.

      "KrAZ" - "lapotnik", of course, is good. Not like our "KamAZ". And "Kaolitsiya" on "KamAZ" looks like a saddle on a cow.

        There are no such differences anymore. KAMAZ has occupied all niches and 4x4 and 6x6 and 8x8 ... and now all this appears with a new cab and its diesel engine from 400 to 750 hp and is already advertising a 5-axle quarry car.

      This weapon is located too high. And judging by the fact that he has only a bucket from the back of the supports, he can only shoot in a small sector of angles relative to the longitudinal axis of the machine.
      In Malka, the legs move apart, its track width is greater than that of Kraz, and the length of the car is a plus in this case. That is, it has much larger guidance angles along the horizon.

        1. Easier to deploy and move.
        2. Western trends - long barrel, increased range and corr shells with GPS guidance (relatively cheap)

    4. Apparently, the controls are extremely primitive, you can not even dream about control and guidance from the cockpit.

    There is no way to spy on the Czechs, they have already eaten a dog on such self-propelled guns.
