21

Turkish wheeled ACS T-155 Yavuz has successfully completed the next stage of testing. According to Defense Turk, in the second half of May, the self-propelled howitzer was subjected to fire tests.

According to the publication, in the last tests, the ACS fired six consecutive shots, placing all the shells in the target with a deviation of 1 meter. No other test details are provided. It also remains unclear whether the tests of the howitzer have already been completed or will continue.



The current prototype of the T-155 Yavuz self-propelled guns was officially presented in 2017 at the IDEF 2017 international arms exhibition. Tests of the artillery mount have been going on since 2018.

The howitzer in its layout and parameters is very similar to the French CAESAR ACS.

The Yavuz self-propelled gun is a semi-automatic howitzer mounted on a 6 × 6 off-road truck chassis. The crew of a self-propelled howitzer is 5 people, a diesel engine with a capacity of 480 hp. allows the car to accelerate on the highway to 90 km / h with a power reserve of up to 600 km. The cabin is armored, there is protection against weapons of mass destruction.

Caliber 155 mm, rate of fire not less than 4-6 rounds per minute, barrel length - 52 caliber. The prototype's ammunition load was declared at 18 rounds, but this value could change. It can use 155-mm NATO shells, as well as active-reactive ammunition. The declared firing range is from 18 to 40 km.

The development is carried out by the Turkish company Makina ve Kimya Endüstrisi Kurumu (MKEK).

    -very similar to the French CAESAR SPG.
    And what is surprising here, as a NATO member Turkey has access to Western technologies and components.
    Israel helped the Turks (at the initial stage) with the UAV.

      very similar to the French CAESAR SPG.

      Most likely the system is similar to the Israeli ATMOS 2000.

        Most likely it is. The Turks have very little French.

    This means that she took over all the shortcomings of CAESAR.
    Disadvantages
    Poor off-road permeability
    Low protection against enemy fire
    Small ammunition

      Some of these limitations are specific to towed artillery. What are we doing?? to replace everything with tracked self-propelled artillery?

          But what an analogue Malva, one BAZ chassis is an elephant in a china shop ... Malva is "the largest Soviet microcircuits in the world!"

        So it was already replaced, there was almost no towed left, it went into storage.

    All right on the wheel formula burns away ... I understand that the concept of spring and thaw are not known to countries with an equatorial climate, but the goose, in my opinion, is more practical.

      This is not a replacement for tracked self-propelled guns, but rather a replacement for towed guns ...

    Wow, at 75 °? ...
    Place the projectile 1m from the target, fantastic result.
    Wheeled self-propelled guns are also needed in Azerbaijan.

      Why not 1 cm? Lie so lie.
  6. But they can also "fit" the neighboring Ukraine instead of "Bogdana". Or take part in fine-tuning the latter.

    So you have the Czech self-propelled guns "Dana" modernized by Israel, the Turks still crawl to the Jews in artillery fire control systems, especially in conjunction with the UAV.
    Your main caliber is 152mm, not NATO's 155mm, it is not so easy to switch from one caliber to another, even considering that you seem to have or are building your own capacities for firing shots for a 125mm tank gun and 122mm and 152mm howitzers, you are going to to produce gunpowder by increasing the area for cotton.
    So even if you adopt a 155mm self-propelled gun with a NATO standard caliber gun, in order to be able to use it in a war, you need 6-8 years, and everything will be decided in the next 3-4 years.
