Russia could soon deploy in Ukraine its latest artillery weapon- the Coalition-SV ‘combat robot' which can fire 10 rounds per minite in barrage mode previously unavailable in Russian artillery.

Russia’s Rostec has completed state tests of the 152-mm self-propelled artillery gun "Coalition-SV", and is ready for serial production.

The self-propelled howitzer, Coalition-SV is in fact a combat robot,” Rostec said in a release. One of its distinctive features is a high level of automation - the crew is located in an isolated armored capsule and from where they remotely control the combat vehicle.

The newest howitzer surpasses the best world in terms of firing range and accuracy, as well as in the time it takes to complete combat missions.

Self-propelled "Coalition-SV" is designed to destroy artillery and mortar batteries, armored vehicles and enemy personnel. The weapon is also designed to solve the problem of destroying air and missile defense systems, as well as control posts and field fortifications.

The gun has fully automated shot preparation processes, including selecting the type of projectile, installing the fuse and aiming the gun. This reduces the start time of firing and provides a higher rate of fire than comparable SP guns.

Compared to existing types of artillery weapons, the Coalition-SV has a reduced reaction time to any unscheduled targets, which is especially important in modern combat conditions. Successful completion of state tests allows us to begin serial production of this artillery weapon,” said Bekhan Ozdoev, industrial director of the complex of conventional weapons, ammunition and special chemicals of the Rostec State Corporation.

The Coalition-SV is outfitted with a 152mm 2A88 cannon with a rate of fire of over 10 rounds per minute. The motorized artillery system is mounted on the chassis of a T-90 tank and can strike up to a distance of 70 km.

The gunner’s and commander’s workstations are integrated into a single command and control system allowing for receiving target acquisition via a digital communications channel, monitoring terrain round-the-clock, autonomously calculating firing data and adjusting fire.

The breakthrough artillery system was engineered by the Burevestnik Central Research Institute and is produced by the Urals Plant of Transport Machine-Building (Uraltransmash).
