The arsenal of the new self-propelled anti-tank gun "Sprut-SDM1" was replenished with ammunition with remote detonation

The new Russian self-propelled anti-tank gun "Sprut-SDM1" received not only a new fire control system, but also new shells that were not used on the base model. Bekhan Ozdoev, industrial director of the Rostec weapons complex, spoke about this.


The self-propelled anti-tank gun 2S25M Sprut-SDM1, developed for the Airborne Forces, was armed with shells with remote detonation, we are talking about high-explosive fragmentation ammunition. In addition, the gun's arsenal still includes armor-piercing sub-caliber and HEAT shells. "Octopus" is capable of fighting both enemy armored vehicles and infantry.

Unlike its predecessor, the new version of the vehicle was able to fire high-explosive fragmentation ammunition with remote detonation, which significantly increased the effectiveness of the fight against light fortifications and enemy manpower.

- leads RIA News words of the representative of Rostec.

Earlier it was reported that the Sprut-SDM1, created on the basis of the BMD-4, received a new fire control system, a power plant, an information and control chassis system, a new sighting system and the most modern software and hardware. Also, "Octopus" received an additional remote-controlled machine gun installation.

In August last year, Rostec reported that the Sprut-SDM1 had completed state tests and was preparing to be put into service, but there were still no reports of this. It is possible that the combat vehicle is being tested under the conditions of a special operation in Ukraine, but this is not mentioned anywhere. In principle, this option is quite realistic, now our designers are trying to drive all promising types of weapons through the SVO in order to identify their possible shortcomings in a real combat situation.

The Sprut-SDM1 combat vehicle is armed with a 125-mm cannon, a 7,62-mm machine gun paired with it and a 7,62-mm machine gun mounted on a remote-controlled module. strong points and defensive structures of the enemy, conducting military reconnaissance and combat security.

    Oh how? This seems to be the first, not counting the anti-aircraft guns? Well, with the initiative, the topic is needed. However, it is high time to develop in smaller calibers - both anti-personnel and anti-drone. End like it's time

      You want very comprehensive knowledge and training from the Octopus crew. Work on various targets on the ground and in the air. In fact, mediocrity can come out again.

        With drones, an exaggeration, although theoretically possible. But with the infantry - it's useful.
        Here's something else that worries me. Did you develop shells in half a year? Or were they created earlier, but were not supplied to the troops?

          The gun is new and the shells for it.
          There will be nothing at the front for the time being, until the resource and ammunition depots of the old cannon work out.

        In fact, it is only difficult for the crew to find the target. The rest, as they say: "a matter of technology."
        The ballistic calculator will calculate the lead vector and the flight time to the target. Those. the crew doesn't care what the goal is.

          The conditional crew, even in the case of a perfect MSA, is not all the same: human attention will also have to be spent on "servicing" the target.
          Those. conditionally, while he was engaged in one target, the crew "flowed" from another target, or at the last moment they chose the wrong priorities.

            For anyone, you need to see and evaluate all the dangers, regardless of the possibility of defeat. The gun and the SOU have nothing to do with it.

            And the battlefield is not a shooting range with the choice of all targets at once. Most of the time the tank maneuvers, approaching the position of a possible defeat selected goals. If you do not understand this, then substitute yourself for several blows at once.

      I agree with you. A good direction for modernization, I am a supporter of a deep modernization of existing infantry fighting vehicles and infantry fighting vehicles, instead of developing fundamentally new equipment such as the "Kurgan", which is too large, crude, expensive and it is not clear at what stage of development. And the beha is low and inconspicuous

        Such a gun (SLA) and ammunition would be very useful to the entire MBT line. And the Octopus ... a very niche tool for one type of troops (Airborne Forces) with paper armor for the sake of parachute landing. And the price is more expensive than MBT.
        And on the Ukrainian theater of operations this definitely has nothing to do.
        But to equip conventional MBTs with such ammunition and SLAs would be very useful for the current conflict.

        This shell sucks over the trench - a small angle of expansion.
        But in places of firing points - that's it.

    Not a professional at all. Or rather, another effective manager who worked only in government agencies, although no, he worked as a teacher after graduation. In general, there are misunderstandings with this Octopus, the projectile was made for direct fire, and the armor for firing from closed positions ... Well, why should the ass have an accordion?
    In addition, there are few fools left who gather in heaps in the trenches, it would be better if they made a simple and cheap buckshot shell against small UAVs.

      So it's not the projectile, but the fuse.
      All 125-mm OFS in service are compatible with this system, provided that the standard 3V-21 fuse is replaced with electronic 3VM-12.

        All the same, in the projectile, too.

        Tank fragmentation-beam projectile "Telnik" 3VOF128
        Without ready-made striking elements, including, the projectile makes little sense.

        That an ordinary projectile and Telnik cannot be said to be very effective in terms of area. We need a canister projectile with a GGE and with a perpendicular expansion of the GGE relative to the axis of the projectile. VV minimum. The body is extremely thin. And a lot of balls weighing offhand 4-5 grams. Let not wolfframe. Let carbide steel. Undermining at a height of 10 meters.
        You can dream more. Directional formation of the field of fragments. This is doable too. But it will be more expensive. Although more efficient.

          I think that for a tank BC this is already an excessive variety. The Jews came up with such a thing from the constant need to act in the cramped buildings of the Gaza Strip and minimize destruction.

            The main purpose of tanks is to hit what infantry cannot hit. Just for these purposes, this projectile will be in great demand. And for the Octopus, too, where it will be useful.

              That's for the Octopus for sure, because the crews for them must be just perfectly prepared. But for a linear tank, and the same crew, it’s already difficult. KMK, well, an HE shell with a full charge of explosives is quite a powerful thing, sloppy, but powerful.

                Shooting with such a projectile is not much different from firing a guided missile. So any full-time crew can master this device.

                  Maybe it can, but here the question of complexity is not the application, but the choice of projectile. And this is a different level of training. With an unprincipled difference between the HE and the projectile you offer, this is an extra burden on the commander of a mass tank, and on the budget at the same time.

                      And why is a full-bodied OF not suitable for this? A shrapnel projectile, however, is not entirely suitable for many purposes common to HE. Again, no one canceled the cost / efficiency.

                        The cost of the searad that I propose will be much more expensive than usual. GGE steel balls. Corps and VV. Frozen but not critical. Fuse remote serial. The road is ordinary, but also not like a cast-iron bridge, but the use of undermining such a projectile is much greater, in fact, a circle with a diameter of 30-40 meters will be completely covered with shards. With the energy of a pistol bullet at least. There is little left/living.
