This complex has a name - self-propelled howitzer "Coalition-SV". According to the original plans, the "Coalition SV" should have two trunks.
But after numerous tests of prototypes, the designers decided not to go on such a bold experiment and returned to work on a single-barrel modification of the self-propelled artillery installation.
About 4 years ago, the project was on the verge of collapsing, as then Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said that the main military department was refusing to finance the development because of its low potential. I wrote about this in due time Kommersant. As a result, it turned out that the project is still very promising, unlike the attempt by Mr. Serdyukov himself to bury him as Minister of Defense.
If the self-propelled howitzer of the new generation will be commissioned in the near future, Russia will become the sole leader in the production of high-tech self-propelled guns, whose role remains significant in various military conflicts. Experts believe that there are many willing foreign countries to purchase this type of equipment.
Uralvagonzavod promises to complete work on Armata and Coalition-SV by March of next year. This was announced by Vyacheslav Khalitov, deputy general director of Uralvagonzavod, at an exhibition in KADEX-2014 in Astana ITAR-TASS:
In a short time, a lot of promising products "Armata" and "Coalition-SV" is being organized and conducted to participate in the anniversary Victory Parade 2015 of the year, the readiness of which should be ensured already in March 2015 of the year.
