Syrian army uses long-range cannons mounted on Mercedes 4140

Two years ago, the Syrian command made an attempt to independently resolve the issue of a shortage of self-propelled guns in the army. The attempt was successful - the installations created by local Kulibins still successfully exterminate enemies, writes in his article for Messenger of Mordovia Lev Romanov.


Syrian army uses long-range cannons mounted on Mercedes 4140


To create the installation, the M-46 long-range cannons available to the armed forces were used, which, according to the author, can cover the enemy with an ordinary projectile at a distance of 27 km, and with active-reactive ammunition - up to 37 km.

“M-46 is a heavy cannon and has a significant barrel length, so it was necessary to pick up a strong, reliable base for it. However, the Syrians abandoned the tank chassis due to limitations in the resource of outdated T-55 and T-62, and it was too wasteful to “cripple” the existing T-72. Therefore, a commercial four-axle Mercedes 4140 with a wheel formula 8х8 was chosen as a platform, ”writes Romanov.



For the first time an expert on the Syrian issue, Yuri Lyamin, spoke about this self-propelled gun in his blog. The ACS was commissioned by the 103 artillery regiment operating in the Damascus area.

Military installation experts liked the forethought of their design. Motorboats are the most long-range systems in the Syrian army and continue to be used at present.

      Syrian army uses long-range cannons mounted on Mercedes 4140 Does the USA know that Daimler supplies them with trucks for this purpose? I want to see what steps they will take against such giants as Daimler and Toyota. They started to quack about Toyota, not those groups that they don’t like, they sell cars.

        A little offtopic

        They already merge VW, they begin to merge Toyota, I think they will get to Benz. Thereby they clear the way for their auto industry, which completely turned off the world game 25-30 years ago. And the signing of the Pacific Trade Partnership (or whatever it is ...) was the beginning of the persecution of global car makers. Obama, after all, stated that the rules of the game will only be set by them, and not all China there ...

        By the way, we should learn this approach to draining our competitors ... Otherwise, we have only increased duties for the past 15 years, while practically (until recently) investing nothing in the modernization of the automotive industry. As the BAB began to break up the VAZ, it was only recently that they came to their senses ...

        And we have a minus - why on Mercedes, and not on the Urals or KAMAZ, for example ...
        I hope that now the turnaround will go not only in the defense industry, but also in the civilian industrial sector. Import substitution, although not so relevant here, but remembering how the Soviet automobile industry shone (it shone - one Moskvich won in the 60s how many victories he won at international exhibitions! And where is he now? Eh ...) on the international stage, and where now Russian auto industry ...

    Goal for invention is cunning. They have no counter-battery struggle, it seems, accordingly, such home-grown self-propelled guns are quite suitable.

    I wonder why Ukrainians did not come up with this? Or was it a problem to find such a chassis? But what about KRAZ and other auto-bike-ukro-moto? Compared with Ukrainians, it’s quite resourceful, but Ukrainians for some reason hit the construction of armored irons, and exactly the same as ISIS ... Looks like a school ...

      KAMAZ and Mercedes are one company now ... Daimler-Benz seems to be participating in KAMAZ, I don’t know for sure, either as a co-investor, or something else ...

    Russian aviation presses ISIS militants to the Turkish border

    The terrorists of the “Islamic State” in Syria are forced to retreat, abandoning their prepared positions. Government troops with the support of Russian aviation take the city out of town. Already managed to free a significant part of the provinces of Hama and Aleppo. Militants are pressed to the Turkish border. The Islamist control remains the province of Idlib, and Assad’s army has already begun its sweep.

    Above Athan, a fighter raises the Syrian flag. During the large-scale offensive, this small village was liberated, the militants used it as a stronghold. Russian aviation with high-precision strikes destroyed the bunkers and communications of the Islamists. Radicals from the Jaish al-Fatah and Anjand al-Sham groups, which are under the operational control of the leaders of the Al-Qaeda Syrian branch, the An-Nusra Front, were based here.

    After Russian front-line bombers destroyed the terrorist control points, units of the 4th assault corps of the Syrian army carried out artillery bombardment and stormed the city. Ibrahim Abas participated in the assault on the positions of militants. It shows the cars that the Islamists used here. “This is a right-hand drive car, we, in Syria, do not have these,” he says. - It is clear that the militants came from abroad and received foreign aid. There were many mercenaries from other countries. ”

    Syrian military show the things that terrorists used. It is clear that there were also mercenaries from Saudi Arabia, and guidelines for the provision of first aid, which were printed in this country, were also found. The militants used the local school as an ammunition depot. There are still shells in the classrooms. Terrorists used homemade and standard ammunition. By the way, retreating, threw weapons.

    The main direction of the strike is ahead of the large settlement Idlib, which has been held by the Islamists for several years. The task is to push the militants back, to regain control of the province and the border with Turkey. Soldiers of government forces have to fight for every home; militants are well prepared for defense. Moreover, attempts are constantly being made to counterattack.

    Government forces drove armored vehicles, now they are hitting the positions of militants who are half a kilometer away. The observer spotted a group of militants in time. Islamists act this way often, in small units they come close and attack unexpectedly. Under the cover of machine guns, which are installed on the outskirts of Athan, the group advances to the place where the militants were spotted. The attack is repelled. But stripping continues in the city.

    Militants often use a system of tunnels even to move from one locality to another. Therefore, every underground passage is checked by fighters - before entering, they throw grenades into the tunnels. The offensive operation continues not only here - hostilities are taking place on all sectors of the front in the north of the country.

    Active fighting is taking place near Salma (this is the most important city near the border with Syria), government forces are also advancing in Aleppo. Militants are rapidly losing control in these regions.

    The solution is interesting, only by what principle is the gun pointed and is there any shooting table at all?
    Otherwise, you can shoot into the white light like a pretty penny, especially at such distances, because they’re not beating directly ...
