Afghan gunners use Ukrainian development to improve the effectiveness of the D-30 howitzers



The artillery units of the National Armed Forces of Afghanistan (NAVA) have adopted a new computerized fire control system developed by Ukranian Defense Consulting (UDC).

According to the International Defense Review, before transmitting NBCA, the Universal Battery Fire Direction System UBLFDS (Universal Battery Level Fire Direction System) was first tested by a project management team from NATO. About 300 kits were transferred to the Afghan army, where they are currently used for firing X-NUMX-mm howitzers D-122.

For its part, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (VSU) is currently completing its own equipment tests and intends to purchase 500 sets of UBLFDS, which are scheduled for delivery to the VSU in the middle of 2014.

The effective combat use of 122-mm towed howitzers D-30 is the main means of the NSAA, providing the ability to conduct operations without the support of the international security assistance forces ISAF. In some cases, these systems will be used instead of directly aviation Support provided by ISAF.

As previously reported by Janes, NBCA is experiencing serious problems in the combat use of the D-30 howitzers due to the lack of qualified specialists capable of preparing gun crews.

From August to October 2013, representatives of UDC worked with cadets of the MFA department of the Ukrainian Academy of Land Forces to conduct field tests of UBLFDS kits using D-30 howitzers at the test site in Lviv. According to the UDC representative, the cadets have mastered the use of the UBLFDS product after 20 minutes. briefing.

First, APU aims to equip command UBLFDS products division, applying 152-mm self-propelled howitzers 2S3M, 152-mm self-propelled gun 2S5, 122-mm MLRS BM-21 "Grad" and 220-mm MLRS 9K57 "Hurricane".

During November 2013 of the year, UDC specialists tested UBLFDS products on 122-mm MLRS BM-21 “Grad” at the test site in Rovno. The tests were conducted during the exercise of the 80-th airmobile regiment of the Army of Ukraine.

The UBLFDS system kit allows real-time distribution of data across the network to speed up the combat work process (firing) and increase its efficiency. The product allows you to automate the process of preparing installations for firing and accurate targeting of various samples of artillery guns.

The UBLFDS system kit consists of a laptop computer (based on a TDS NOMAD PDA) with a senior battery officer (battery commander), position sensors (mounted on guns), and tablet PCs (for each gun commander).

All elements of this system are connected wirelessly. The battery commander from positional sensors receives data on the position of the guns and their orientation. After entering (receiving a command from a senior officer) type of target, type of weapons, ammunition and other data necessary to perform the task, the battery commander can give commands to take up the firing position with sending a message containing the firing task to the tablet PC of each gun commander.

The modular meteorological station 110-WS-16 is used to provide batteries with meteorological data. Meteorological data is transmitted via Bluetooth (Bluetooth). The equipment operates in the NATO horizontal angle measurement system (6400 of the goniometer divisions) and the former Warsaw Pact Organization (6000 of the goniometer divisions) and applies the coordinates of the Mercator Universal Projection (UTM) cartographic systems and the Pulkovo-1942 geodetic coordinate system (CK-42).

UDC also offers products with appropriate software for combat use of the following artillery systems:

82-mm mortar 2B14;
82 mm mortar BM-37;
82-mm mortars MXNUMHA;
120-mm mortars 2C12 and M-43;
122-mm self-propelled howitzers 2C1;
122-mm towed howitzers M-30;
X-NUMX-mm towed howitzers D-152;
122-mm MLRS BM-21 "Grad";
The 130-mm M-46 towed howitzer guns.

    But I wonder what will happen after these systems fall into the hands of the Taliban?
    After all, no one doubts that it will be so?

        This is just a waste of money. Who wants to write and read has long been dumped from there. There were those who want to grow opium. I would not recommend spending it on them ...

      The Taliban then just these things butts from the guns will separate like heresy and the machinations of the devil ... so it's all an empty phrase. It’s just that the fraternal republic is trying to saw off a piece of our market while the market still exists, because after the change of power it will be a black hole, not a territory.

        And who made the decision that this is precisely the market for the Russian defense industry? This is a business - the first one, that and slippers.

    lol
    It’s scary, frankly, to imagine:

    Wow, how market-wise it sounds! This is usually the name of sellers with a herd of managers, and a real plant with designers and laborers eats a miserable existence, accepting handouts from these "consulting"

    Meteorological data are transmitted via the Bluetooth channel (Bluetooth).

    Bluetooth is certainly good, but you need to know the classic rules of shooting. Otherwise, if something happens, this whole system is a pile of metal.

    Only for police operations to clean up those unwanted. Yes, and only if there is no possible artillery-missile response. Otherwise, the last living on a battery will guide the trunk

    NVSA are experiencing serious problems in the combat use of D-30 howitzers due to a lack of qualified specialists capable of providing training for gun crews.
    And now they’ll master a new and modern fire control system easily and without compulsion ... storytellers.

    Interesting info comes first
    As previously reported by Janes, NBCA is experiencing serious problems in the combat use of the D-30 howitzers due to the lack of qualified specialists capable of preparing gun crews.
    And then into the ice behind him
    The UBLFDS system kit consists of a laptop computer (based on a TDS NOMAD PDA) with a senior battery officer (battery commander), position sensors (mounted on guns), and tablet PCs (for each gun commander).
    All elements of the specified system are connected wirelessly. The battery commander from position sensors receives data on the position of the guns and their orientation.

    They would have to learn to read and write to begin with, and then immediately a wireless network, a laptop computer. Oh, I think the fate of this computerized fire control system is not easy ???

      Now a five-year-old child is already intuitively versed in all of these gadgets, but here he entered the data, pressed the center and the computer, he himself writes where to shoot and do not need to count anything laughing (I exaggerate, but it's easier to figure out the buttons of a computer than to "manually" shoot)

        I look at your French flag, as you understand the children of France, you mean first of all?
        Do you know that Afghanistan lives its own specific way and almost in the Stone Age? Even if there is cellular communication in Kabul, then 99% of the population cannot afford the cheapest gadget.
        Literacy of the entire population is estimated at 34%. Female literacy is 10%.
        What kind of analysis of gadgets are we talking about? If the population is illiterate!
        I will write again
        the difficult fate of this computerized fire control system
