Ukraine vs. Russia: artillery

Ukraine vs. Russia: artillery

Today, in the course of military operations of the Northern Military District, artillery, like a century ago, plays the most significant role. Aviation, which so well provided an advantage during the Second World War, is practically not used today, being practically countered by air defense systems.


The theater of operations has a new weapon, a kamikaze drone and high-precision missiles of the Hymars type, but hardly anyone will try to downplay the role of artillery. "Hymars", "Tornado-S", an ordinary barrel with "Excalibur" or "Krasnopol" - it's all good, these are swords that can inflict a fatal thrust, as happened in the same Makiivka. But the usual cannon artillery in decent quantities is a club that will beat the enemy until he is completely destroyed. An ideal tool for processing the front edge and rear of the enemy.


Everything that has been happening in the Donbas since 2014 to this day is a saga of two calibers, 120mm and 152mm. A mortar and a howitzer, everything else is the same ... Now the 155-mm caliber, which is more long-range and more accurate, definitely rules the ball. Of course, no one is going to underestimate the capabilities of 152-mm howitzers, but if we talk about counter-battery firing, then longer-range 155-mm guns have a clear advantage.

If we are talking about the capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Azerbaijan, then everything must be considered from different positions. If you look at the payroll of the artillery of the two armies, they look different. We, I repeat, are talking about cannon artillery, both self-propelled and towed.


The Russian army is armed with 9 types of self-propelled guns and mortars and 6 towed ones.


The army of Ukraine is armed with 15 types of self-propelled guns and mortars and 24 types of towed guns and mortars.

On the one hand, what the Armed Forces own is a terrible mess and a complete cancer of the brain for logisticians and suppliers. 15 types against 39 - it looks scary, because all 39 models of Ukrainian guns and mortars require spare parts, equipment, and the worst thing - shells. 3 mortar calibers (60mm, 82mm, 120mm) and 6 gun calibers (105mm, 120mm, 122mm, 130mm, 152mm, 155mm) is a lot.

For comparison, the AR artillery operates 3 calibers of mortars (82 mm, 120 mm and 240 mm) and 3 calibers of guns (122 mm, 152 mm and 203 mm). The difference, although small, is there.

In order to get a picture of what is happening, we will begin to cross out those systems that are in service with both armies.

Mortars



The 82-mm mortar 2B14 "Tray" is in service with both armies.
The 82-mm automatic mortar 2S9 "Vasilek" is in service with both armies.
The 120-mm mortar 2S19 "Sani" is in service with both armies.
The 120-mm gun-howitzer-mortar 2B16 "Nona-K" is in service with both armies. In the Russian army, of course, there are many times more guns than in the Ukrainian one.

Towed artillery


122-mm howitzer D-30. It is in service with both armies.
152-mm howitzer 2A65 "Msta-B". It is in service with both armies.
152-mm gun 2A36 "Hyacinth-B". It is in service with both armies.

Separately, it should be emphasized that ALL the listed artillery systems were developed and produced in the Soviet Union, which led to their presence in the ranks of both armies.


The newest of the Russian towed systems, the Msta-B, was developed in the 70-80s of the last century and, with a very big stretch, can be considered a modern weapon.

Now let's take a list of what came to the Ukrainian army from friends and neighbors. Mortars are not even worth considering, a mortar is a melee weapon by artillery standards, and since the Second World War it has practically not changed and is used in exactly the same way.


105 mm Howitzer M101 (USA). The oldest weapon, developed back in 1919, put into service in 1940.


105-mm howitzer M119 (USA). Developed in the 70s of the last century, a light infantry support weapon.


105 mm howitzer L118 (Great Britain). British gun, adopted in 1972.


130 mm gun M-46 (USSR). It has been in service with the Soviet army since 1951, in Russia it exists only as a museum exhibit. Croatia handed over the cannons to Ukraine. The firing range of the OFS is up to 27 km, the AR is up to 35 km.


155-mm self-propelled howitzer TRF1 (France). In service since 1979. According to performance characteristics - an analogue of "Msta-B". But it can move at speeds up to 8 km / h. The firing range of the OFS is up to 24 km, the AR is up to 30 km.


155-mm towed self-propelled howitzer FH70 (Germany-Italy-UK), in service since 1979. Analogue of "Msta-B". The firing range of the OFS is up to 24 km, the AR is up to 30 km.


155 mm howitzer M114 (USA). In service since 1939. Firing range up to 14 km.


155 mm howitzer M777 (USA). The only modern gun on the list, in service since 2005. A little, but exceeds the range of other towed guns (up to 40 km with Excalibur). Given the initial number of M777s in 152 units (a certain number may have been destroyed during the hostilities), a very significant component in the Ukrainian artillery. The firing range of the OFS is 24 km, the ERFB projectile is 30 km, and the Excalibur projectile is more than 40 km.

Self-propelled artillery



This is the saddest part of the story, because here the RA is inferior to the APU in full. It is in terms of the most necessary artillery, long-range and mobile.

Here, in principle, we have the same situation as in towed artillery, that is, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are armed with both Soviet-made self-propelled guns and mortars, as well as imported ones. Figures for Soviet equipment are given at the beginning of the conflict, imported - the total number of receipts.


120-mm gun-mortar 2S34 "Hosta" / 2S32 "Nona" - are in service with both armies. RA - about 80, APU - about 40.


122-mm howitzer 2S1 "Carnation". RA - 150 pieces, APU - about 300.


152-mm howitzer 2S3 "Acacia". RA - 800, APU - 250.


152-mm howitzer 2S19 / 2S19M1 / 2S19M2 "Msta-S". RA - about 1500, APU - no more than 80.


152-mm gun 2S5 "Hyacinth-S". RA - about 100, APU - about 20.


203-mm gun 2S7 "Peony" / 2S7M "Malka". RA - about 60, APU - no more than 15 2С7, about 80 in storage.


240-mm mortar 2S4 "Tulip" in the amount of 40 pcs. only RA has it.

In general, it turns out that at the time of the beginning of the NMD, the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was a very dull and sad sight. The same as the Russian artillery, because without exception, all models of the above list were developed and produced in the USSR. That is, until 1992. The exception, and even then, relative - 2S19M2 "Msta-S", the modernization was made in Russia.

However, with the beginning of the SVO, self-propelled guns from volunteers went to Ukraine, and the picture changed dramatically.

Here it is worth bringing the 2S19M2 Msta-S self-propelled guns as the starting point, as the latest Russian self-propelled guns.


The firing range of an HE projectile is 25 km, the firing range of an active-rocket projectile is up to 29 km, the firing range of a guided projectile is up to 25 km. Compared to 2C3 "Acacia", the growth is just fine. Compared to NATO artillery...

So, NATO provided the following self-propelled guns at the disposal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine:


152-mm self-propelled gun-howitzer vz.77 "Dana" (Czechoslovakia). Supplied by the Czech Republic 20 pcs. Developed in the 70s of the last century, produced from 1981 to 1989. The maximum firing range did not exceed 20 km.


155-mm howitzer Zuzana 2 (Slovakia). Produced since 1998. 8 pieces were delivered, delivery of 16 more is expected. Deep processing of Dana to NATO standards, a 155-mm barrel with a length of 52 calibers provides a firing range of up to 41 km.


155-mm self-propelled guns CAESAR (France). Designed in the 70s of the last century, but in production since 2002. APU received 24 self-propelled guns. The maximum firing range of an HE projectile of the ERFB type is 41 km, an active-rocket projectile is 46-49 km. The self-propelled guns can fire the M2005 V-LAP long-range projectile with a range of 54 km.


155-mm self-propelled guns AHS "Krab" (Poland). In service with the Polish army since 2010. It is a self-propelled howitzer based on the chassis of the South Korean K9 Thunder howitzer, produced in Poland under license, using the English AS-90 turret system, also produced under license. 18 self-propelled guns were delivered to Ukraine and 54 more were contracted.


155-mm self-propelled guns PzH 2000 (Germany). Produced since 1998. APU delivered 28 units, contracted about 100 units. The best self-propelled guns in the world, the firing range of the HE shell is up to 50 km, the AR shell is up to 67 km.


155-mm self-propelled guns M109 (USA). Produced from 1962 to 2003, it was the main self-propelled gun of the US Army. In service with more than 25 countries around the world. The barrel length of 39 calibers does not allow you to shoot far, but numerous electronic control systems provide very decent accuracy. The range of fire with an HE shell is up to 22 km, with an AR shell up to 30 km.

It turns out not a very pleasant conclusion: the guns of the NATO armies (with the exception of the Dana) easily shoot down Russian howitzers. Moreover, not only in terms of range, although range is sometimes very important, but also in terms of accuracy.

Artillery systems of 155-mm caliber, according to the memorandum on ballistics JBMOU (Joint Ballistics Memorandum of Understanding) with a barrel length of 52 calibers, having a more progressive barrel cutting system, provide better stabilization of the projectile in flight on the outer trajectory and, accordingly, greater range and better shooting accuracy.

ANN, various sensors on the gun itself, a system for receiving and transmitting data, a ballistic computer coupled with a navigation system for automatic aiming of the gun - this is no longer science fiction, but today. Interaction with reconnaissance satellites through the NAVSTAR system for more accurate target designation is a useful option, while in the Russian army the gunner's best friend is still the compass.

We are simply silent about the additional option as a quadrocopter-spotter.

It should also be said about the artillery ammunition of the NATO countries, which is supplied to the artillerymen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Not only did the development of the shells themselves not stand still, the shells themselves became more accurate thanks to the use of various electronic corrective devices.

Guidance systems such as PGK, FGK, CCF, placed in the nose of the projectile with a stabilizer for correcting the flight path and a protected programmable GPS-guidance module - this is strong.

And literally two words (because the topic deserves separate consideration) about Krasnopol and its opponents. "Krasnopol" is a good projectile, with a decent range and accuracy when compared with conventional HE shells. Krasnopol's chances of hitting a single target are 1 to 10, that is, it takes 1 regular projectiles for 10 AP to reach the same target.

But in reality, Krasnopol is outdated both morally and physically. The maximum firing range of 25 km is nothing today, especially in comparison with the Excalibur, which quietly flies twice as far (data from Block 1a-2). But even 36 km of the minimum range is quite a decent difference. Ten kilometers is a lot.

The cost ... 36 thousand dollars for the Krasnopol against 100 thousand for the Excaliber is not that impressive, it’s worth remembering that the Soviet projectile has been in operation since 1986, and the American one since 2005. Ten years in technological terms is an abyss, because many rightly believe that "Krasnopol" is much inferior to "Excalibur".

The question then is where the $100 will go. If in a tank or headquarters - this is one thing, and if in the field - another.

To more or less sum up, let's look at the number of delivered guns for the Armed Forces of Ukraine from among those that are better than Msta-S and Msta-B.

Of the towed guns, this is exclusively the 155-mm American howitzer M777, delivered in the amount of 152 units. Yes, a certain number of these guns were destroyed, but it is difficult to say how many, as it is not entirely clear yet.
Self-propelled guns:
ShKH Zuzana 2 - 8 pcs. (and 16 more on order).
"CAESAR" - 24 pcs.
AHS Krab - 18 (and 54 planned).
PzH 2000 - 28 pcs.

That is, the Armed Forces of Ukraine theoretically have more than a hundred towed M777 guns and more than 50 (78) self-propelled guns, which are better than the Msta-S.

Много это или мало?

Of course, if you look at the fact that the Russian army, in theory, has more than a thousand self-propelled guns "Msta-S" - this is generally a penny.


If you look from the side of the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have more than 150 barrels capable of firing Russian guns while outside the affected area, the situation takes on a completely different color. Counter-battery combat today is a very topical issue, and the way it is posed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine makes it a very unpleasant affair for Russian gunners.

Longer-range NATO howitzers, coupled with reconnaissance drones and satellites in low orbit, transmitting data almost to battery commanders, can do the most unpleasant thing - completely neutralize the superiority of Russian artillery in terms of numbers.

Indeed, as many barrels as you like can be concentrated on a separate section of the front, but the guns of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will begin to work on them because of the zone of destruction by artillery. Yes, it is possible to use MLRS, but this is a double-edged sword, since for each volley of Tornadoes and Hurricanes, the accuracy of which, we admit, is not at the highest level, a response volley of Hymars can fly in, the accuracy of which is already known and estimated by dignity.

But "Hymars" are pinpoint injections, but a hundred barrels operating in the KBS mode for target designation from satellites and UAVs may well bring significant problems to Russian gunners. And by the way, they do.

And we have nothing to answer. Although shooting at a distance of 30+ kilometers will not be so accurate, but alas, Msta-S cannot oppose anything to NATO guns.


Today it’s too late to say why it happened, although it’s worth saying that work on the 2S33 product was stopped in favor of the 2S35 Coalition-SV, which remained in the same place as the Armata, Kurganets ... And the 2S35 itself is still not ready for serial production. As a result, we fight with what we have at our disposal, not even dreaming of being on the same level with NATO.


At least 12 manufactured self-propelled guns "Coalition-SV", which has been hoarded since 2002 for more than 20 years, cannot have absolutely no effect on the current situation.

So far, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have as many barrels of modern artillery as they would like, but work in this direction is underway and modern howitzers will still arrive. And how then our gunners will have to work is very difficult to say.

They, the gunners, are absolutely not to blame for the fact that peace and quiet reigned in the quiet and warm offices of the Russian Ministry of Defense for more than 30 years. And no one was bothered by the fact that the artillery of the AR is 100% made up of barrels of Soviet design and production.

Yes, of course, the development of the "Coalition" greatly helped to strengthen the defense capability of the Russian army. All specialized media paid tribute to this self-propelled guns, describing how good it is and why the “German” PzH 2000 is worse than 2С35.

But the PzH 2000 was made for four hundred, but the 2S35... But what can I say, there are more German self-propelled guns in service with Ukraine than the Russian army has 2S35.

There is something to think about while our gunners, without exaggeration, heroically carry out their tasks at the front.

    Initially, at first, the enemy’s CBO art was good. The experience of combat use and coordination was felt. They well and quickly received coordinates from the UAV, quickly aimed. What can we say, they caught vehicles for an air blast with shrapnel. Our artels only wondered how it was possible. how quickly the coordinates are transmitted, the pointing occurs and the shot is fired. And then the same thing as here in the article went. Just when the first "axes" and "Caesars" arrived. Apparently they have changed the priorities of the value of calculations and types of weapons there. And the same thing happened as the author in the article. Everything is so the author falls into such a "charm of performance characteristics." This happens when caliber and range begin to be considered a decisive factor. But on the LBS, all the same, damned mortars often play the main violin. And due to the fact that they are "organizationally" closer to the defending units and due to the unpleasantness of the trajectory of the fall of their mines (all the same, from artillery you can almost instantly find a "shell shadow" and the mine will fall almost vertically and unpredictably). And the difference in caliber is often leveled by the fact that the trench from artillery and from a package of hailstones will perfectly protect, but if a mine falls into it, then everything is a grave. On the other hand, an ax hitting a one-story house of a local construction collapses it or destroys everyone inside, and mine 82 is held by the roof, scattering at the same time. True, the same 120 will destroy the house in the same way. From practice, all these high-precision 150s are dangerous if the equipment is crowded in an open area or the headquarters is lit up - yes, it can fly there accurately and unpleasantly. On the front line, such shelling has little effect. There are many spare positions and false ones, the infantry quickly moves out of the shelling, etc. For conditionally rear units and field warehouses, the distribution of ammo is dangerous. For unarmored vehicles too. But in fact, I would like even smaller caliber mortars in the advanced units. To solve local problems of support independently by the unit. Something like 10 or 8 German WWII times. Now ATGMs perform this function in the presence of a good operator ... Or at least the presence of a large number of charges for ATGMs with an HE charge. Practice has shown that ATGMs are not only an effective means of combating armored vehicles, but also a good means of suppressing stationary defenses and, accordingly, supporting their defenses when enemy assault groups attack ...

      Yes, there is little about mortars in the article, and in general, little is said during the NWO.

        There are questions about mortars right away, starting with the smallest 82-mm caliber. Ever since the Great Patriotic War, they complained about the weak fragmentation action and the weak impact on field fortifications. Since then, many things have been invented to solve problems.
        For a long time there have been solutions to increase the fragmentation action of mines.
        In particular, the US has developed a multi-mode fuse M734 with detonation above the ground for 60, 81 and 120 mm min.
        And to destroy fortifications and equipment since the 2nd World War, cumulative ammunition has been developed. But 82-mm cumulative fragmentation mines did not appear in our country.
        The 82-mm mortar itself nevertheless underwent modernization in the form of 2B24 and received an increased range, and a slightly more powerful mine, but that's all. And the automatic "Vasilek" remained low-mobile, there were not even attempts to install it on a more convenient trolley or car chassis. And the installation on tracked MTLBs remained in single copies.

            During the Second World War, the development of a new artillery system / deep modernization of the existing one, with a much weaker level of design technology and production capabilities, took from several months to a year. Now this is quite possible, the only question is either the presence of a leading will and strict control, or the complete absence of fresh brains in the design of this branch of military equipment. If the "Coalition", about which they talk about the range of HE up to 40-50 km, and the AR in general about the fantastic 70-80 km, have been tormented for 20 years (self-propelled guns are still not a fighter ...), then either stupidity, or you need to chop heads. ..

        Real victories at the front are not to be expected. The prepared defense of the Russian army, the saturation of the front with military equipment and weapons, as well as the effective work of our drones and the Aerospace Forces, practically stopped the ability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack. The APU has big problems with logistics. It is impossible to repeat the Kharkov operation today.

        The article, of course, thickens the colors, but if you still add MLRS, then the RA (Russian army, since it’s a more sonorous abbreviation, instead of AR No. ), then the missile systems for KBS we have the word "have" is incredibly wrong, "created" is Tornado-S with missiles corrected using GLONASS good but here in the troops they are, to put it mildly, not enough feel
        Our Arta is quite effective, this is confirmed by both sides in their own, but it can be much better!
        The main problem, as I understand it, is the lack of systems for opening the positions of enemy self-propelled guns firing from a distance of 30+ km, Penicillin hears Artu like at 18km, the Zoo is written useless, Aistenok against mortars, as a result, we have nothing to detect the positions of long-range artillery of the enemy! belay which is surprising, given the rather advanced air defense systems, we could not create a modern artillery reconnaissance radar! Well, the scourge of all RA is communication and control, as I understand it, further reduces the effectiveness of the CBS.
        The Krasnopol projectile, also like a Kalashnikov assault rifle, is not an obsolete weapon! Excalibur will not hit a moving tank, but Krasnopol can, it has a minus in the form of external illumination, but there are pluses in the ability to hit even moving vehicles.
        The main problems are not in the length of the barrel and the firing range (our Arta reaches the main targets without problems) and not in the absence of systems capable of covering targets at long range (missiles have been created, but there are few of them in the troops, as I understand it), but in the absence of the ability to detect long-range Artoo! am

          To hit moving tanks, Ukrainians have SMARts and BONUS - which do not need laser illumination. And Krasnopol, alas, is still outdated. The Americans removed their Copperhead (an analogue of Krasnopol, more precisely, that analogue of Copperhead) from service in the 90s, although it seemed to perform well in the First Iraqi. A set of Excalibur for stationary targets and SMART/BONUS for armored vehicles is more effective.

      Still, chaoacteristics, there are characteristics. The new 155 mm is fundamentally better than our old 152. And the inertia of our MO in this matter is amazing. Obviously, they were not going to fight with anyone.

        The new 155mm is fundamentally better than our old 152.
        It's not about the caliber. In millimeters, there seems to be no difference. The point is the design of ammunition. In my memory, somewhere in the 80s, when the "damned imperialists" made a qualitative breakthrough in the development of ammunition and barrel artillery in general, towards increasing the range and accuracy of shooting, we allegedly dominated the point of view that barrel artillery was cheap, according to compared with rocket technology, a component of the weapons system for delivering not so much accurate as massive strikes. And of course, the quality of bulk ammunition has never been a strong point of our defense industry, starting with rifle cartridges. Apparently, the experience of the war taught me to pay more attention to the possibilities of mass production.

            . Modular propellant charges providing the ballistics of a barrel with a length of 39 calibers the same as our 50+., shells with improved aerodynamics, with bottom recesses, with gas generators, with an increased filling factor - all this appeared in the west then in the 80s. and not only appeared, but was actively introduced into the troops.

          New shells for artillery were not made, since there were a lot of old Soviet types in the warehouses, for which there were ready-made tables and everything was calculated. By the way, this is almost a direct speech of one Alexei R., who was offered, if not a new form of shells, but only more powerful gunpowder and explosives to be put there.

      Initially, at first, the enemy’s CBO art was good. The experience of combat use and coordination was felt. They well and quickly received coordinates from the UAV, quickly aimed. What can we say, they caught vehicles for an air blast with shrapnel. Our artels only wondered how it was possible. how quickly the coordinates are transmitted, the pointing occurs and the shot is fired. And then the same thing as here in the article went. Just when the first "axes" and "Caesars" arrived. Apparently they have changed the priorities of the value of calculations and types of weapons there. And the same thing happened as the author in the article. Everything is so the author falls into such a "charm of performance characteristics." This happens when caliber and range begin to be considered a decisive factor. But on the LBS, all the same, damned mortars often play the main violin. And due to the fact that they are "organizationally" closer to the defending units and due to the unpleasantness of the trajectory of the fall of their mines (all the same, from artillery you can almost instantly find a "shell shadow" and the mine will fall almost vertically and unpredictably). And the difference in caliber is often leveled by the fact that the trench from artillery and from a package of hailstones will perfectly protect, but if a mine falls into it, then everything is a grave. On the other hand, an ax hitting a one-story house of a local construction collapses it or destroys everyone inside, and mine 82 is held by the roof, scattering at the same time. True, the same 120 will destroy the house in the same way. From practice, all these high-precision 150s are dangerous if the equipment is crowded in an open area or the headquarters is lit up - yes, it can fly there accurately and unpleasantly. On the front line, such shelling has little effect. There are many spare positions and false ones, the infantry quickly moves out of the shelling, etc. For conditionally rear units and field warehouses, the distribution of ammo is dangerous. For unarmored vehicles too. But in fact, I would like even smaller caliber mortars in the advanced units. To solve local problems of support independently by the unit. Something like 10 or 8 German WWII times. Now ATGMs perform this function in the presence of a good operator ... Or at least the presence of a large number of charges for ATGMs with an HE charge. Practice has shown that ATGMs are not only an effective means of combating armored vehicles, but also a good means of suppressing stationary defenses and, accordingly, supporting their defenses when enemy assault groups attack ...

      A familiar mobilized mortar gunner (he served as a signalman on an urgent basis, but this is another sore point) was recently wounded on the very first day of his presence in the database zone ... they opened fire from 120 mortars, after sighting and at the moment of waiting for the adjustment, a response had already arrived ...

      Back in 2001 when specialists from the Main Artillery Directorate and the Tula Design Bureau of Instrument Engineering arrived at the location, the question was raised about equipping the Metis ATGM with high-explosive fragmentation warheads; as a result, they received Thermobaric warheads and high-explosive fragmentation carts are still there. The same goes for cornet and bassoon. The generals laughed at our proposal in general, they said it was useless to hit the infantry from the ptrura, not the level of them to jam the infantry in the field. Hold a 40mm undershot to RPG 7 and rejoice. We dragged an RPG 16 to them and said that we needed shots of a larger caliber of 57 mm and with an engine that would increase their firing range, we suggested making warheads similar to the NURS S-5 and where this shot is not, hit from 40mm at 500m with a pair you need to hit at 1500m and an RPG 16 provided the possibility of firing at a given distance. In the Armed Forces of Ukraine, instead of PG 7 VL, a mine of 82 mm caliber is also screwed from without origin. So we’re fighting, plus of course it’s RShG and TBG that finally appeared, but the troops in Chechnya asked for a rocket-propelled grenade with high-explosive fragmentation warheads, but received thermobaric ones that are useless in the field against a dispersed enemy, but good in urban battles. And so we turned out to be biased towards fighting tanks and urban combat thanks to the failed assault of the formidable under the Christmas tree.

        Hold a 40mm undershot to RPG 7 and rejoice.

        At first I didn’t understand this either, but then it turned out that this was due to the restrictions (sort of like) of the Geneva Convention, according to which more than 400 grams of explosives in TNT equivalent cannot be used in the ammunition of portable weapons.

          Well, I don’t know about 1,5 kg of explosives in TBG and the bastard weighs much more than a PG 7 VL shot and a shot range of only 200m, while the grenade launcher brother swears at everyone who did this miracle, he says it would be two times lighter and a range of two more than the price for him would be in combat.
          SO for reflection The S-5M and S-5M1 missiles are designed to combat enemy manpower and weakly protected targets (vehicles), artillery and missile positions, aircraft at airfields, etc. fragments weighing 75-0,5 g. The length of the S-1M missile is 5 mm.

          Starting weight 3,86 kg High-explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 1,08 kg contains 285 g of explosive.
          So we don’t reach the Zhinev convention

    The lack of range of our guns, in theory, should be compensated by the work of the Smerch MLRS, and their not very accurate, in turn, in one gulp. But here, as usual, intelligence and communications should be combined, and with them "that's all" ...

And as for accuracy, it was originally increased (an autopilot for the MLRS rocket!), And with the introduction of correction by satellites, it didn’t at all. So don't. And Hymars without an advantage in intelligence and without ATACMS is not bad, nothing more.

          What you have described is not really meant to increase "accuracy". BSU, consisting of IUP, BEIA and CD, integrates the calculated pseudo-velocity and pseudo-path to determine the correction in time for the EED, from which the command to open the warhead or release a parachute. That is, the control system only controls the planned "dispersion" of submunitions or the moment of separation of the HE part on the parachute, and not the trajectory of the shells themselves, although the side effect, in fact, is less dispersion in range (not along the front) due to the creation of a control moment on the INITIAL section of the trajectory, which eliminates oscillations of the RS axis after leaving the guide.
          PS The main RS for Tornado are cassette (K), with the index F - a rarity.

    The author is absolutely right when speaking about the Krasnopol projectile as obsolete, but he did not indicate the main drawback of this projectile: guidance along the laser beam. Since there is no one to highlight targets in the rear, the applicability of this projectile is extremely limited.
    In NATO countries, the bulk of warheads, both shells and bombs and missiles, are GPS-guided, which do not require illumination and are much more effective, especially against stationary targets.

    Thank you, Roman, for a fairly complete overview of the artillery of the opposing sides.
    I’ll make a reservation right away: in artillery - an amateur.
    I think mmax is right in cursing our notorious unification with obviously obsolete models, but those who assess the championship shooting of NATO 155-mm howitzers as a factor that does not affect the course of hostilities on the line of contact are also right.
    The article mentions the 203-mm gun 2S7 "Peony" / 2S7M "Malka". It would make sense to attend to the manufacture of an analogue of "Krasnopol" for this caliber. Moreover, an active-rocket projectile with a warhead corresponding to "Excalibur" will fly 80 - 100 km. Yes, it will require significant costs, it may involve attracting foreign aid, but the game is worth the candle. With a reasonable approach, such a projectile would make it possible to equip promising destroyers with a 203-mm system, which would dramatically increase their ability to support landing forces and destroy secondary naval targets.

        I myself would not have thought of this before.
        The universal 127-mm single-turret Mk 45, developed by the American company FMC, is designed to destroy surface, ground and air targets. However, the 127-mm caliber turned out to be small for firing at coastal targets and for using nuclear weapons. To sink even a small merchant ship with a displacement of about 10 tons, according to experts, at least two dozen hits of 000-mm high-explosive shells were required. the gun mount was fire support for amphibious operations.It was developed at the request of the US Marine Corps, it was a fully automated weapon.The tactical and technical assignment for the development of the mount was issued in 127 by the command of amphibious operations.Development of the system began in 8. The mount was successfully tested on aboard the destroyer Hull of the Forrest Sherman class in 55. Mark 71 was supposed to be installed on destroyers of the Spruence class, advanced missile cruisers of the CSGN type, as well as on the Long Beach missile cruiser after it was re-equipped with the Aegis multifunctional combat system .
        The installation could provide a rate of 12 rds / min and fire at this rate for 6 minutes. In total, 75 shots of six different types were ready to fire. Shooting was carried out with separate-sleeve loading shots.
        The program was closed in 1978 due to budgetary constraints.
        In the mid-1970s, the design of the 203-mm Pion-M ship installation began on the basis of the oscillating part of the 203-mm gun 2A44 self-propelled guns Pion. It was the Soviet response to the Mk 71. The amount of ammunition ready for firing was the same for both systems - 75 rounds of separate-sleeve loading. However, in terms of rate of fire, the Pion outperformed the Mk 71. The Pion-M fire control system was a modification of the Lev system for the AK-130. Compared to the 130 mm caliber, 203 mm active-reactive, cluster and guided projectiles had incomparably greater capabilities. For example, the size of the funnel of a high-explosive projectile from the AK-130 was 1,6 m, while that of the Pion-M was 3,2 m. The Pion-M active-rocket projectile had a range of 50 km.
        In 1976-1979, several reasoned "justifications" for the advantages of the 203 mm gun were sent to the leadership of the Navy. Nevertheless, "Pion-M" did not enter service.

      This is not stupidity and it was not created by the people. This is a betrayal of national interests by a part of the people, organized by the former KGB in the so-called. "elite". It began from the time when the leadership of the CPSU realized that nothing complicated needed to be done, it was easier to send raw materials abroad and use the funds received both for strategic purposes and to ensure a more or less tolerable standard of living for the population.
      Russia, like the USSR, cannot exist outside the development project. This project was replaced by a project of dismantling a great power in favor of a raw material appendage of the "golden billion". The "elite" became fabulously rich (although "sesame" is in the hands of the true owners), and the people were offered not too thick raw material rent, and for those who need more - self-employment. At the same time, PR people talked a lot about freedom, the rejection of paternalism, and so on. As a result of the operation invented and carried out by Western strategists, the USSR was first collapsed, and then Russia was prepared for destruction.
      And the people under any regime are busy with survival and procreation. It does not affect strategic decision making.

And the famous forty-five cannon was discontinued - they say it is outdated! Something similar is happening right now! And what do you want from pompous parade-parquet generals who help thieves and traitors of the Russian oligarchy to "cut" the defense budget! All ears buzzed with front doors - "there are no analogues in the World", there are no analogues in the Russian army either!

      and did it right. The fact that France was bent in a month and a half, even for the Germans, was unexpected. And if there was that missing 1 year, then tank corps, and the development of new equipment, and 57mm anti-tank guns, and airfields, etc.
      The problem is different, that after 08.08.08/1941/XNUMX the time was not like in XNUMX, but we have Serdyukov. And no one sat down or was shot... Consequently, there is no reason to expect a quick change in the situation.

        After Finland, the native party and Comrade Stalin personally took up the army in such a way that in a year there would be no one left alive. KV-3, ZiS-2, mechanized corps, which they just didn’t turn back in the 41st.

In 1942 there would have been the same T-34s, but after the UKN "from the 1001st machine", the same KVs (because the engine and transmission of the KV-3 were invincible). Unless the ZiS-2 could go into production ... but, given our industry, here I put it on the temporary replacement of the 57-mm anti-tank guns with the M-42, the task for which was issued in parallel with the ZIS-2.
          The mechanized corps in 1942 would have been squeezed - following the results of the exercises in September 1941 and the data on the post-French reform of the OShS of panzerdivisions that finally crawled to the USSR.

Suspend the construction of the battleship "Soviet Belarus" and instead lay four project 402 destroyers at the plant number 30 in Molotovsk.

              Moreover, only two BSh GK cruiser sets were ordered from Krupp for Project 69I - and then the delivery schedule stretched, EMNIP, until 1943.
              So in 1941 they will remake Project 69 into Project 69I and approve a new project.
              On April 10 of the same year [1941], the Defense Committee made the final decision to install three twin-gun 69-mm main-caliber turrets on the Project 380 heavy cruisers under construction, approved the changes in the main tactical and technical elements associated with this, and ordered the People's Commissariat of the Shipbuilding Industry (NKSP) to correct the technical design and approve it in its final form by October 15, 1941.

                      By the way, the need to revise the staff of the MK was announced back in 1940 - Khatskilevich at the December meeting slashed the truth in front of the high command: according to the results of the KShU, the corps does not fit into the band, the rear is overloaded. But in practice, the artillery of the corps is always lagging behind.

      Everything written is very reminiscent of the events of the last peaceful years before the Second World War, when the Main Artillery Directorate of the Red Army under the command of Marshal Kulik believed German propaganda about the huge number of heavy tanks in the Wehrmacht and began to develop a 107 mm anti-tank gun, which was never created before the start of the war!

      This is not propaganda, but official intelligence data of the Red Army. Which, in all seriousness, fed the leadership of the Red Army with fables about the use by the Germans of thick-armored tanks with 88-105 mm guns back in the French campaign. And in 1941, the same intelligence reported on the presence in the Panzerwaffe of heavy tank divisions armed with serial tanks with 80-120 mm armor (of which this intelligence counted as many as three types).
      Quote: EFIM LYUBIN
      And the famous forty-five cannon was discontinued - they say it is outdated!

      The removal of the 45 mm PTP from production was due to two factors:
      1. The presence in the troops of 14900 of these anti-tank guns. With an estimated loss rate of 75% for the first year of the war, this amount would be enough before the start of mass production of new anti-tank guns. Alas, the Red Army blocked all the norms, having already lost half a month later available magpies.
      2. Absolutely insufficient armor penetration of the 45 mm BBS. What kind of heavy tanks are there - during tests in 1940, a 45-mm anti-tank gun was able to penetrate everything 40 mm armor of the German type (K=2600) from a distance 150 m (the angle from the normal is 30 degrees). That is, one could forget about the defeat in the forehead even of the average "three" or "four" - after France they had a 30 + 30 mm sandwich or a 50 mm monolith there.

        The reconnaissance data may have been exaggerated, but even Pavlov, who was shot later, if my memory serves me, complained that the 45-mm gun did not penetrate the frontal armor of the StuG-III.
        And Kulik must be credited, which is possible precisely thanks to his pickiness, Grabin managed to create his masterpiece ZIS-3 based on his previous F-22USV and ZIS-2.

          However, this was also known before the war - the 40-caliber 76-mm had significant discrepancies with the theory even when working on domestic armor with K = 2450-2500.

      This was the case in March and May. As a result, the capture of Lisichansk, Svatovo. Only when the chimarsoids arrived and modern artillery did the concentration become impossible.
      After that operation, a huge number of shells and barrels were fired. Himars and escaliburs destroyed frontline warehouses. As a result, shell and barrel hunger. 122 mm shells simply ran out, but artillery of the 40s D-1, S-60 appeared en masse at the front. On the other hand, on the contrary, there is an increase in the number of shells, including Soviet calibers.

By the way, they told me that the units of the Armed Forces during the NWO did not "disdain" 60mm mortars! There is one more note ... special units of the Armed Forces use "special mortars" "Gall"!

    and 3 gun calibers (122mm, 152mm and 203mm)
    Well, not exactly like that ... Judging by reports, the 100-mm Rapira anti-tank guns have recently begun to be used more actively! (By the way, the Armed Forces of Ukraine too!) It should not be forgotten that 125-mm tank guns are often used as self-propelled guns ... and with the advent of the T-62 on the "front", 115-mm tank guns!

    For some reason, I always thought that 155 mm. and 152 mm. the shells are the same in diameter (taking into account the difference in the measurement of calibers) - along the fields (152) and along the rifling (155). Connoisseurs, is it so or not, tell me, please.

      There is no division into Western and domestic measurement systems, this is another viral myth. With rare exceptions, such as the Parabellum cartridge, the division of the reference system of the caliber takes place according to the metric / inch measurement system. T to NATO calibers are metric, then the caliber is considered by fields. From memory, the diameter of the leading belt of a 155 mm caliber projectile is about 158 ​​mm, for our 152,4 mm add 3 mm, it will be approximately 155.4 mm.

        And do not add to the 155th, but subtract 3 mm, here you have the same 152 along the leading NATO belt.

          stankow, I don’t have fortune-telling, but personally verified info, if you don’t believe me (and don’t have to), then go to Wikipedia (English), and analyze a dozen or two cartridges of various measurement systems, metric and inch. After that, you get your own, having real weight, KNOWLEDGE, and not this here, trendy, extremely mythologized in its origins, OPINION.

            The Germans and Russians created their rifled artillery "separately" from the British and French. Therefore, the approaches to this case were initially different. But at the same time, the Germans did not measure their guns in inches. The difference in calibers is not limited to 9mm. Russian 7,62 in fact 7,92, 5,45 practically 5,56. By the way, it's all fractions of an inch. Russian artillery in "inches" (more precisely, in "lines") basically remained - except for small-caliber and 100-mm ones.

      It seems that the difference is due to the fact that our caliber is 6 inches (152,4 mm), and NATO uses the French metric 155 mm caliber. It was chosen by the French gunners in the 1880s as the optimal one based on some scientific calculations of the time.

    The ballistics of the Coalition was supposed to be a response to the massive appearance of 155 mm L52 howitzers in the enemy. Msta-S is inferior to them in ballistics. The Coalition has a problem with a modular charge that our industry cannot master in production. Unlike the industry of Serbia, India, Turkey, South Africa and others. Serbia now offers self-propelled guns even with better ballistics than those of the Coalition.

    It’s not clear to me how in some units they bring artillery to such a state that their guns are torn off. Isn't it easier to send them for repairs than to shoot all the way in the calculation to make an extra couple of hundred shots? Or is everyone hoping that the plant will promptly send a new replacement?

    As far as I understand, the main problems can be solved with the help of UAVs and a modern control center. And the trunks need to be made under the coalition, put not only on super-duper automated unmanned vehicles, but also changed to self-propelled guns, done like Hyacinth - on an open cart ..... on an open wheeled vehicle. Then there will be saturation. For example, I have not seen self-propelled guns with a coalition without a deserted tower. On self-propelled guns like this and on Kamaz, but on BAZ, for some reason, they put a barrel from MSTA ... Strange. And now everyone admires Caesar and counts every wrecked car.

    The author somehow "missed" that Hyacinth-S actually shoots further than Msta. And that the Coalition in the NWO was used in quantities quite comparable to the Pz2000 (and shoots farther and faster than the "Panzer", and even more so faster than Caesar). And that the M777 has FH-70 ballistics. The M109 at least has not the best ballistics, the US Army still does not have 155/52 field guns and wheeled self-propelled guns. Those. they are still sitting on the "tools of the 70s of the last century." And for some reason I "forgot" about the D-20.

    NATO artillery "outperforms" Russian artillery not so much due to the qualities of the barrels themselves (as for accuracy, we started using 52 caliber barrels with progressive rifling just earlier than in NATO), but due to fire control systems, reconnaissance equipment and modern precision munitions. Those. in principle, this is CORRECTIBLE with the modernization of even existing artillery systems (which does not cancel the mass production of the Coalition).

    I don’t know how the situation with counter-battery firing is in theoretical calculations. But in real life, Banderaaffen, in the Donbass, they complain that there is no life from Russian art. And no one is pushing her. And about the "tornado". Yes, RS with a range of 120 km. - deficit, but the range is 90 km. there is no shortage. And besides, the "Himers" hits the coordinates that must be entered into the GN, and the "tornado" is not big, but does not stand still. He fired back and left, so the question will hit "Himers" or not. And finally, what prevents adding the Tor or Pantsir BM to the "tornado" platoon?

      They mostly complain to the valiant military commissars.

      However, you are partly right. The article says this. The Russian Federation has a significant, at times, superiority in the number of barrels and the consumption of shells. Therefore, in sectors of the front that are secondary from the point of view of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the "thin layer" of Russian artillery from the ground does not seem thin at all.

      But in key areas, the quality of imported products begins to play its role.

      You see, leaving for a short time, the question is how to arrive. Or he comes with the whole division from the deep rear on calls - and this is considered a day. Or he stands in advance in a position from which he can cover the artillery that has shown itself - which means it is waiting for the arrival on its own. According to reports from the field, former brothers react quickly and clearly to fat targets.

        And by the way, they complain that imported art quickly fails. Not least because it shoots at maximum range, with maximum charges. That is, fashionable gay European guns will continue to break at an accelerated pace. I already said about 777 that the cannon, to put it mildly, is very so-so. The Hindus, after a trial batch, abandoned it.
        If the division of "tornadoes" is 80 km away. from the front - who will cover it? And at the expense, a day to leave - how is it? Is the work of the division planned for the day? As for the "torus" or "shell", there are a lot of such cars at the front and it's not so easy to "squeeze out" on the air that this is a "shell" that covers the "tornado" and does not stand near Melitopol. Our RTR and EW are also working.

          Counter-battery cases need a direct radar-battery connection. Received a signal and immediately shoot, without pause.

        It’s not entirely clear, why is the 9M528 “deficit”, if GLONASS was forced to stick into any cart with four wheels, and the Tornado projectile was initially not quite “cast iron”? And in general, the complete contempt of the Moscow Region for satellite-guided projectiles is incomprehensible. According to rumors, Krasnopol was "saved" by Orlans-30.

      If we knew in advance which artillery systems would be in demand, the 125-mm self-propelled anti-tank gun 2A45M Sprut-B would have gone into production ahead of time.

      That's a cannon, so a cannon, right for modern conditions, that's it. Unification with tank shells, high trajectory flatness, self-propulsion to change positions. It could well replace tanks, as they are now used when firing from closed positions. And even in some ways it will be better than the 152-mm "Hyacinth", due to the lower mass and the possibility of self-propelled. And it certainly surpasses the 100-mm Rapier.
      If the conflict drags on, then it's time to start production and put it into action.

    Amateurish thoughts ... Well, if I look like a fool, you minus ...

    The farther a projectile can fly, the more the accuracy of its landing is affected by the environment and the movement of the target. If the projectile is made more powerful so that it flies faster and the target does not have time to move, then the environment will also have a stronger effect on the accuracy of the landing.
    If you attach wings to the projectile and something, due to which it deviates less from the target due to environmental influences, then it will fly a little slower.
    If you add various sensors to the projectile, guidance from drones, from satellites, it will become expensive in production.
    Then why do many advocate modern shells? Mortars are a malicious evil for everyone who even passed mathematics in the 80s and understands at least a little what a trajectory means.

    If something is completely wrong - tell me, please.

      Some kind of strange formulation of the question.

      The manager turns the artillery scattering ellipse into a missile QUO. Considering the current prices for active rockets and modular charges, in order to fight back, the manager must reduce the consumption of shells by three to four times. Pure arithmetic problem. Plus, the bonus greatly simplifies (and therefore accelerates) aiming.

      By the way, this means that if you spend 10 thousand shells per day, and the enemy - a thousand, but half of the guided ones, then in fact the enemy outnumbers you in artillery.

      A high-precision type Excalibur is generally about something else. High-precision can be used when it is necessary to lay down a specific house in a dense building and it is IMPOSSIBLE to get into the neighboring one. The Russian army will not have such problems.

    "People and volleys of thousands of guns mixed up in a bunch of horses", the god of artillery of the RA, some kind of ASUk. And what is the difference between the domestic 152 and the NATO 155, really, depending on how you measure it. Our 152 mm gun caliber, bore diameter 152,4 mm + 3,05 .1 mm (rifling depth of 155,45% for howitzers), diameter along the bottom of the rifling = 6,1 mm. For guns + 2 mm (rifling depth of 158,5% for guns), the diameter along the bottom of the rifling = 155 mm. We measure the caliber along the fields in the bore and NATO - the depth of the rifling, it turns out: NATO 154,3 mm caliber guns, bore diameter by rifling 3,09 mm - 1 mm (grooving depth of 151,2% for howitzers), bore diameter = 1 (at 154,3%). For guns, it is already 6,2 - 2 mm (rifling depth of 148,1% for guns), bore diameter = 2 mm (at 152.4%). It turns out that our howitzers are NATO 151.2-152.4, guns 148.1-155. NATO caliber is determined by the bottom of the rifling in the bore. And then the local multi-machine operator Skomorokhov declares "here the longer-range 155-mm guns have a clear advantage." After all, it’s clearly not the caliber, the composition of the gunpowder, the FCS, the correction module. So why is the 152.4 NATO caliber better? XNUMX of Russia, reminds a joke:
    "A Georgian and an Armenian are driving in a compartment, they are silent. The Georgian says:" Georgians are better than
    Armenians! "
    The Armenian is silent. The Georgian repeats: "Georgians are better than Armenians!" That again

        Perhaps I am behind the times, but the classification of guns according to the length of the barrel was as follows: 15 - 30 calibers - howitzer, 25 - 40 calibers - howitzer-cannon, over 40 - cannon. Therefore, a howitzer with a barrel length of 52 caliber makes me a little bewildered.

    The author feels a great resentment for the RF Ministry of Defense. War is a competent distribution of the efforts of different branches of the armed forces, taking into account the strengths and weaknesses of the enemy. You can't be strong in everything. It does not happen anywhere and never. The range of Haimars and self-propelled guns can be neutralized by air and ground guided missiles, as well as strikes by kamikaze drones, which is being done now. That's what the author is right about is that a NATO satellite constellation hangs over the heads of the Russian army, from which "you can't hide." Without it, the APU is like a blindfolded dog with plugged ears. Here is the main danger. This is what cannot be tolerated in any way, since such patience results in direct combat losses and leads to a possible defeat in the war.

      The author feels a great resentment for the RF Ministry of Defense.

      You know, now a great resentment against the Russian Defense Ministry is rising all over the country. And if everything continues in the same spirit, they will simply start beating the face for the stripes.

      War is a competent distribution of the efforts of different branches of the armed forces, taking into account the strengths and weaknesses of the enemy.

      Correctly. What is the strength of the Armed Forces? Their mighty Atlantic fleet! Therefore, it is necessary to spend billions on Kuznetsov, and the drones will somehow get screwed.

      Here's what can't be tolerated

      And what method of impatience do you propose?

    it’s kind of gloomy ... it’s better to watch the Security Council on REN TV, everything is rosy there.

    You can also revise the "Strike Force" or "Military Acceptance" for the Star. There, in general, we are ahead of the rest.

    The new 155mm is fundamentally better than our old 152.


    Caliber is the fifth thing here. Extra 3 mm do not make the weather.
    The problem is not in the caliber, but in the quality of the manufacture of the barrel, cutting, length in calibers. Western manufacturers squeezed more out of their artillery systems, but everything has a downside: their artillery systems have a smaller resource. And in a protracted conflict, this indicator is also important.
    In general, the main problem is in the ammunition, and not in the gun. As well as in the realization of the obvious (even for a reasonable amateur) fact that a gun is only an element of the combat system. With perfect reconnaissance, target designation, the presence of a rich and diverse range of ammunition, even not the newest artillery systems can fight quite well.

      More. Neither Msta nor Hyacinth 3000 shots pull. That is, they pull, but it’s better not to.

      Yeah. Therefore, the 105mm howitzer mentioned in the article, which even saw Hitler, may well work now.

        3 thousand shots on what charges? On full? Let me not believe. The FH70 has 2500. This is the equivalent of Msta. And, again, what are the criteria that she "withstood" them? How much will the initial speed decrease, how much will the dispersion increase? Once, the USSR defense narrator rolled out to the Germans "I will present" for a 37-mm anti-tank gun - the gun did not show the declared armor penetration. It turned out that the German rules were less rigid than the Soviet ones.
        The 105-mm howitzer, which saw Hitler, has not yet achieved anything there, and in any case, even the M30 is worse. Simply due to the fact that the projectile is one and a half times lighter.

          Exactly. And axes, unlike FN, were made a new chrome-plated barrel ten years ago.

          It doesn't matter, you see. Considering the stories about the real state of the artillery materiel of the Russian Federation (and the state of the Soviet artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is even worse), I am not even going to delve into American standards for barrels.

          There is too little of her.

          But these shells are still there, unlike 122mm.

      There is no point in a trunk that takes 9 months to make. If accuracy is needed, guided missiles should be used, and range is needed - missiles. But you must have them. As well as means of reconnaissance and target designation. Management of all this economy. Which is also a must have. Here with it, "it seems", problems.

        Yes, this is always a problem. The same Ukraine helps all of NATO and even more (all sorts of Australians for example), but they also lack everything. In fact, taking into account the fact that we did not prepare specifically for a major war, I am pleasantly surprised by our capabilities ...
        Those de NATO members honestly say that Ukraine lost the war in the spring (although it had already been helped before), they ran out of weapons and became 100% dependent on foreign aid ...
        There has been almost a year of war, and no matter how they blamed our rear servicemen, shells and cannons and tanks are all brought in from us, and all of NATO is screaming that they have devastated all the stocks ...
        Yes, there were miscalculations, there were not enough small UAVs, but this is not so much a question for industry and logistics, but for those who made the decision on the appearance of the armed forces ...
        The same eagles that were recognized as necessary with us are relatively dohrena, even taking into account the large combat losses.
        In principle, a bunch of eagle + acacia division / msta work effectively ...
        Plus, you need to understand that the Ukrainians in the army and especially in the artillery have a lot of veterans, we had practically no veterans (but we do have them in aviation), of course, due to the experience and knowledge of the terrain, the Ukrainian artillery showed good results.
        Now our gunners have received combat experience and the quality of work has grown significantly.
        The only thing I can’t understand is, okay, there is no interaction between the motorized rifle brigade and the artillery brigade and it does not go directly, but through the headquarters of the senior commander. Well, okay, in divisions, where each regiment is a separate military unit. But we have a lot of artillery in motorized rifle and tank brigades, it’s banal, only there is more of it than in Ukraine. There, what problems with coordination can be, I can’t imagine ...
        Classics, the company works in 2 echelons. The first 2 platoons are at the forefront, the third is in reserve ... The commander of the 3rd platoon with a signalman and spotters corrects the work of artillery. Both battalion and brigade ...

    They cannot shoot. They can only conduct counter-battery combat from deeper in the rear. The maximum that they can fire safely is the front line of defense, and then they can get them with peonies. About other means of destruction, such as rocket artillery and aviation, I am silent ...
    A gunfight is not a duel when one battery stands and upsets the other while it is moving towards it...
    It goes something like this... Our artillery, from a distance of 20 km, starts to work along their forward edge. Accordingly, the enemy advances his artillery at a distance of 10-15 km from the front line and begins to counteract. Our artillery changes its location, at this moment another artillery advances to a distance of 10 km from the front line (the previous one was at 20) and begins to cover the enemy artillery.
    Yes, due to the greater maximum range, in theory, the Ukrainians may have the last move, but in practice, losing significantly in numbers, it is difficult to realize the last move.
    Moreover, at ranges beyond 30 km, the spread of shells is huge, taking into account the lack of shells, firing at maximum ranges is rarely carried out, but our army can once again conduct "disturbing" fire at the maximum range.
    In fact, only guided projectiles can effectively work at a maximum range of 30/40+ km. But there are few of them, and they need to be given target designation, which is also not always possible.
    It’s one thing to give GPS on a satellite for stationary targets, but artillery, especially self-propelled artillery, needs to be highlighted ...
    For example, during the siege of Osovets, the Germans used the huge Dora guns. There were only a few 152mm cannons in the fortress, but even they lost a lot in range, and most of the artillery had an even smaller caliber. And at the same time, the Russian army effectively conducted an anti-battery fight and even destroyed one Dora. Although it surpassed all Russian artillery in range by 2-3 or more times.
