Chief of artillery of the Airborne Forces: we have a weapon capable of firing foreign ammunition

Marines have weaponscapable of firing foreign 120-mm ammunition, transmits RIA News words of the head of the missile troops and artillery of the Airborne Forces Alexei Kostritsa.


The prototype model 120-mm self-propelled gun on the chassis of the wheel (6х6) armored vehicle VPK-39373 "Wolf-3" (2013 g).

“One of the conditions for conducting combat is a limited amount of ammunition, opportunities for the delivery of ammunition to the rear of the enemy. The gun 2С9 has the ability to shoot mines of foreign-made caliber 120 millimeters, but the question is whether they will fall. If hostilities are conducted in the rear of the enemy and if it turns out that there are some 120-millimeter mines and mortars, of course, we can use them, ”the colonel said in an interview with the radio station Ekho Moskvy.

Kostritsa also noted that "due to the high cost of ammunition, gunners learn to use high-precision weapons, which can ensure the fulfillment of the task and the health of the calculation with one ammunition."

“Nothing is more precious than human life. If this one ammunition allows you to perform the task from the first shot and ensure the health of the calculation, then the task is completed, we learn to use precision-guided munitions, they are, but we would like more of them, but so far a limited number, ”said the colonel.

          For me, "Echo of Moscow" = "Fart Moscow."
          At first I thought: "Why, why does the head of the missile forces and artillery of the airborne forces give him an interview?"

                Thanks to the Rain and the Echo of Moscow, the population of Russia is developing informational immunity to the stuffing of Western opponents of Russia.
                Therefore, under no circumstances (except for a wide public outcry) should they be closed, plugged, kicked out and subjected to political persecution.
                And an interview with such media outlets allows resource regulars to question the question - "are liberal media outlets in Russia"?

            But I didn’t understand something. The prototype, of course, is pretty, but 2С9 120mm "three in one" - it's "Nona"! The thing, no doubt, is good, but it has been in service with the 1979 year and is constantly being modified. Why then revolutionary? What put on wheels?

            Maybe it’s great news for the “jackets” from “YEHU Moscow” that we have such a cool thing? Well, Kostritsa might have surprised them ....

          Advertising note and advertising photo. Kostritsa spoke about another weapon altogether - 2S9 Nona.

          Here she is - "Nona" - can shoot foreign ammunition. For example, French mines RT-61.

          As well as high-explosive fragmentation PR-14, PRAB, PRPA (active-reactive), APCM (active-reactive) (France), MKE Mod 209 (Turkey), smooth-bore PEPA, PEPA-LP, M44 / 66 (France), cluster cumulative fragmentation ACED (France), MKE Mod 258 (Turkey), MAT-120 (Spain), lighting PRECLAIR (France), MKE Mod 236 (Turkey), flue MKE Mod 226, MKE Mod 250 (Turkey).

            This is about self-propelled guns "Nona" and this has been known for a long time. A photo is a new model on wheels, possibly with the same capabilities. But the wheel drive for self-propelled guns designed for the Airborne Forces is a controversial option.

              Absolutely! Still the boys would not have enough to pull this wheel thing out of the mud! No more worries. “Nona” was planted in such a way that they pulled the tank! And on wheels - only on the road, I think so. If the landing had always moved along the road, it would not be landing, but motorized infantry (with all due respect to the infantry).

        Likely, it would be quicker for the “partners” to come and they would give a pointer to their Ishilovites so that they would take the ammunition with them upon retreat. (collected caravans) and ours will be easier with goals.

Because if this is his private initiative no then vague doubts begin to torment me ... But I don’t want to doubt the head of the missile forces and artillery of the airborne forces ...

    “Nothing is dearer than human life. If this one ammunition allows you to complete the task from the first shot and ensure the health of the calculation,

    A slight increase in the cost of ammunition, significantly saves all other components of the cost of hitting a specific target. In addition, the use of wheeled vehicles can significantly increase the efficiency of the application, due to the high speed of movement.

    And how is this polkash going to hit the enemy from ONE SHOT if you haven’t mentioned a word about the radar of the battlefield or the radar counter-firing?

      So what, the laws of network-centric warfare already in the Airborne Forces do not apply?

      No, they don’t act. Network-centric warfare was not just invented for the Airborne Forces. On the contrary, we were taught to act as autonomously as possible. And network-centric warfare is just interaction, unification into one space. That is, of course, the airborne forces also operate without Makhnovism, somewhere out there, at the level of global command and control, everything has been taken into account and counted. But at the level of company-battalion-regiment-brigade, roughly and simplistically, the airborne forces only need to be poked with a finger at the map.

      Of course, the military theorist is not great from me. Moreover, when I served, the concept of network-centric war only was invented (I read it on Wikipedia). But about autonomy, which, in my opinion, is the antagonist of network-centrism, this is true.

      Typewriter for sale. After all, the Airborne Forces are participating in a local operation and hoping that the necessary ammunition is found is unreasonable. With the best success, you can load an armored truck with your shells, and not drag a toy that may not be useful.
      Now, if the tools were interchanged, then yes. A shell was found, replaced the gun and attack. All the same, it’s easier to drag a gun with you.

    Yesterday I was at the Rayevsky Test Site, near Novorossiysk. I haven’t been there for a long time. He himself once served in the brigade. A huge number of changes. New equipment, a new field town, new boxes for equipment, barracks, warehouses, everything is new. And most importantly, the new is the attitude to the service. With a friend, the son is serving there, very pleased with the new armored vehicles, he says "Dad, we can now burn Abrams and Jaguars and butt on equal terms." And this is a very serious technique. The landing party now has something to oppose to the potential "partner."

      good If you really run into history, then this news has been late since the decision was made to put into service the mortars of 81mm and 120mm caliber in the USSR. Here the German 80mm in our 81mm could be stuck, and our 81 in their 80 .... wassat

    I agree with the wheeled vehicles for the airborne forces (in the above privacy model), it’s very controversial, it doesn’t swim, it doesn’t go far from the psaltery by maneuverability, the silhouette itself is taller and bigger, the same problem with tzm, new logistics, you need to think and experience before you blow what then statements

    Chief of artillery of the Airborne Forces: we have a weapon capable of firing foreign ammunition


    It always has been, the 2S9 gun is the same forever young Nyura-Nona.

    I didn’t understand anything from this article. If to write an article then it would be intelligible

    It is necessary to read between the lines. The gun is new and beautiful on a wheelbase. And the fact that their standards can be used is a huge plus. That's all the news. Wheelbase option is not the best far away for the gun. The cart on the lawn can get stuck. Where the airborne climb is very important.

    Maybe the journalists didn’t convey this to us.
    Well, Nona is the tracks, the Wolf is the wheels.
    Plus, probably the question is about target designation and topographic location.

    The 2S9 gun has the ability to shoot foreign-made mines of a caliber of 120 millimeters ...

    To the opening! like 82 mm 2B14 mortars, they can shoot 81 mm "foreign" mines.
    What is the photo of the Wolf from 2B16 Nona-K? although the gun can also fire 120-mm domestic and foreign mines, but it is not in the Airborne Forces.
    In general, the topic of autonomy in terms of ammunition, fuel and lubricants and materiel is relevant for the airborne forces, which are forced to act in isolation from the main forces, i.e. often lacking direct logistical support (including medical) and supply, therefore, the possession of airfields is of interest to them (airborne forces) in the first place.

    The firing sector even in the towed version is 60 ° (2B16), here it is hardly less, with 120 mm SAO 2S9-1M Nona-S, and with a similar firing range (12,8 km - ARS), this artillery system is not necessary (IMHO).

    I don’t understand the essence and political coloring of this "Echo of Moscow", or the colonels who are on this "echo" constantly confess.
