The developer has started manufacturing the second prototype of the SLA 2S42 "Lotos" for state tests

The developer of the latest 120-mm self-propelled artillery gun 2S42 "Lotos", developed in the interests of the Airborne Forces, began manufacturing the second prototype of the SLA for participation in state tests. The preliminary testing phase was completed in August this year.


A prototype of the Lotos SLA, which has completed preliminary tests, is currently being corrected for the identified shortcomings. According to an informed source, the on-board electronics, the system for laying shells and the chassis needed improvement. At the same time, the production of the second prototype of the self-propelled gun began, which will also take part in state tests, tentatively scheduled for the end of 2023.

(...) a second sample is being made for state testing. The customer needs to check the ability of the "Lotus" to work "in spike", therefore, two self-propelled guns will take part in the state tests at once, which will perform the task in cooperation with each other

- leads RIA News source words.

As previously reported in TsNIITochmash, the Lotos control system will be finalized taking into account the experience of the special operation in Ukraine.

The newest airborne floating self-propelled artillery gun "Lotos" was created on the BMD-4M chassis and is intended for the Airborne Forces of the Russian Federation. Mass - 18 tons, speed - up to 70 km / h, power reserve - at least 500 km. Combat crew - 4 man. The rate of fire - 6-8 shots per minute. Firing range - up to 13 km.

CJSC "Lotos" is designed to replace self-propelled 120-mm self-propelled artillery and mortar units 2-9 Nona and its modifications that are in service with the Airborne Forces.

      I was also interested, a typo most likely. There was a SAO, hardly anything has changed in 2 years https://topwar.ru/173677-perspektivnoe-120-mm-sao-lotos-dlja-vdv-vyshlo-na-priemo-sdatochnye-ispytanija.html

        Fick you guessed it! That's right: SAO (self-propelled artillery gun) ... But perhaps the article is talking about the FCS (fire control system) ...

      Not every author in the subject! Usually I received a task and reprinted it the way I liked it myself. Well, or deliberately confuses the enemy

      FCS stands for Fire Control System.

      Were. And now the paratroopers are fighting. The task of the landing party is not only to land and capture, but also to KEEP their positions for as long as necessary ...

    And it's even better to buy CARDOM in Israel, when it was still possible.

        And sponsor

        And you try to turn around on an unprepared OP with the Sanya mortar battery and compare with 1 minute 2S31 "Vienna" or 30 seconds "Keshet" (self-propelled mortar based on M113A3).

    What does it mean to be finalized taking into account the experience of the special operation? This is a self-propelled gun, it must shoot and drive, no special operation changes this. It's just that the current instance probably does not correspond to the planned values, this is normal, weapons are always being finalized.

      I believe that they are finalizing, taking into account the experience of the special operation, the fire control system. I don’t think that the artillery system, rather the control systems.

    it seems that the author does not see the difference between self-propelled guns and fire control systems ... you can not read .. in the text we are clearly talking about self-propelled guns - self-propelled guns, while the fire control system (fire control means) is a completely different topic ...

    By what year will they bring it to the series? The T-34 tank was put into production in about 3 years, the same "Lotus" has been "presented" for 3 years already, and before mass production for another 10 years at such a pace. Yes, under Stalin there was no such garbage!

      Without a radio station and with a bunch of flaws. Then, in the course of the fighting, they constantly modernized and improved. The result was the T-44.

      Under Stalin, there were no on-board computers either.

    As long as the word AVAILABLE is retained in the characteristics of equipment for the Airborne Forces, there will be no sense in this weapon, since for the sake of this requirement one has to make compromises in everything else. The funniest and saddest thing is that just this characteristic has not come in handy even once.
