Η ρωσική κρατική επιχείρηση Rostec ανακοινωσε την 5η Ιουνίου οτι το Κεντρικό Ερευνητικό Ινστιτούτου Κατασκευής Μηχανημάτων Ακρίβειας (TsNIITochMash) παρουσίασε το πρώτο πρωτότυπο του αυτοκινούμενου πυροβόλου 120 χλστ Lotus πάνω στο σκάφος του BMD-4M.

Ο βιομηχανικός διευθυντής τη Rostec, Σεργκέι Αβράμοφ, δηλωσε, “το πυροβόλο ειναι πλήρως εξοπλισμένο [και ειναι] έτοιμο για να λειτουργήσει σε χειροκίνητη επιλογή. Όλα τα εξαρτήματα περάσαν τους ελέγχους εισόδου από το τμήμα τεχνικού ελέγχου και τον Στρατό.”

Πρόσθεσε στο επόμενο στάδιο θα εξελιχθεί το λογισμικό που θα επιτρέψει στο πυροβόλο να λειτουργεί σε μεγάλο βαθμό αυτονομίας.

Ο Ντμίτρι Μελίκχοφ, αναπληρωτής αρχισχεδιαστής του Lotus, σύμφωνα με το ειδησεογραφικό πρακτορείο RIA Novosti, δήλωσε οτι στην αυτόματη λειτουργία το πλήρωμα θα παραμένει εντός του οχήματος αλλά θα εκτελεί μικρό αριθμό χειρισμών.

    As reported on June 5, 2019, Rostec State Corporation, Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering (TsNIItochmash) of Rostec, Klimovsk (Moscow region) for the first time, rolled out a prototype of a 120-mm self-propelled Lotos 2C42 artillery gun. It is stated that “the general public will receive the combat vehicle at the International Military-Technical Forum Army-2019, which will be held from 25 to 30 June at the Patriot Convention and Exhibition Center.
    In a press release, Rostec GC states that during the tests, the newest airborne floating CJSC Lotos made a detour around a given trajectory at speeds of up to 30 km / h and maneuvering, and also demonstrated the operation of lifting mechanisms for the gun, turning the tower and changing clearance. .

    “Today, for the first time, we rolled out a prototype of CJSC Lotos. At the moment, the gun is fully equipped, ready to work in manual mode. All components passed the entrance control, taken by the technical control department and the military mission. In the near future, the development of software for gun control systems will begin, ”said industrial director of the state corporation Rostec Sergey Abramov.

    Designed specifically for the Airborne Forces, the CJSC Lotos weighs no more than 18 tons, and its engine power reaches 450 liters. with. At the same time, Lotos can reach a maximum speed of 70 km / h with a power reserve of at least 500 km. A self-propelled gun, the combat crew of which consists of four people, is capable of making 6-8 rounds per minute for a distance of up to 13 km.

    The self-propelled gun was created on the chassis, unified in units and assemblies with BMD-4M, and equipped with a fighting compartment with a 120-mm gun with a high degree of automation of preparation and shooting operations.
    From the side of bmpd, we note that in 2016, the General Director of TsNIITOCHMASH JSC, Dmitry Semizorov, in his interviews stated that the first prototype of the ECC for ROC Lotos should be built in 2017, with the completion of the State system tests in 2019 and transfer to mass production in 2020.

    The 2S42 system is designed to replace the 120-mm self-propelled artillery guns of the Airborne Forces of Russia 2S9 Nona-S, 2S9-1 Siristelka, 2S9-1M Nona-SM. As can be judged, the CAO 2S42 uses an extended seven-kilometer undercarriage based on the BMD-4M and is equipped with a highly automated turret fighting compartment with a 120-mm gun.

    R & D «Lotos» on the creation of a new CAO 2S42 in a caliber of 120 mm for the Russian Airborne Forces was launched in 2016 to replace the previously created TsNIITOCHMASH for the Airborne Forces of the promising self-propelled artillery 2A36 with a 152-mm howitzer 2A89 according to the Zauralets-D OKR. Work on the design and development work «Zauralets-D» was suspended after the completion in 2015 of the stage of preliminary testing of prototypes of ACS 2S36.

    Project Lotus: New 120mm Artillery Piece to Revolutionize Russian Airborne Power
    The design bureau tasked with creating the next-gen self-propelled artillery system for the Russian Airborne Forces confirmed that the new ‘Lotus’ 120mm air-droppable artillery piece would be ready for state testing and adoption by 2019. Military observer Andrei Stanavov explains what prompted Airborne to request a brand new mobile artillery piece.

    Andrei Stanavov (RIA Novosti) — Last week, TsNIITochMash military industrial design bureau director Dmitri Semizorov confirmed that mass production of the Lotus could begin as early as 2020, pending state testing and adoption into the Airborne Forces.

    Asked what differentiates the new vehicle from the secretive Zauralets-D self-propelled artillery piece it’s based on, Semizorov told reporters that the new system will include major improvements, from futureproof ammunition, to a new turret profile, new control system, improved chassis, and a new gun with a longer service life.

    Airborne Artillery’s Special Purpose

    Russian Airborne Forces doctrine calls for infantry and light armor units alike to descend from the sky virtually on top of the enemy, wreaking havoc on enemy communications, clearing bridgeheads, and destroying support and supply units far behind enemy lines.

    Accordingly, in situations when the Airborne Troops are separated from the main group of forces, powerful artillery support becomes not just a luxury, but a vital necessity.

    The main difference between airborne self-propelled artillery systems and their Army ‘cousins’ is of course their airdrop capability, including manned drops. The vehicles must be lightweight, while retaining the reliability, protection, and firing characteristics of their land-based cousins. Russian air-drop-capable artillery has long featured automatic rifle-resistant aluminum armor, as well as strong grades of steel.
    The Airborne Troops’ existing systems include the 120mm 2S9 Nona-S, an upgrade on a late Soviet-era design which proved its effectiveness in Afghanistan, as well as the 125mm 2S25 Sprut-SD, a more modern design introduced in the mid-2000s.

    The Sprut (literal translation ‘Kraken’) was developed in the 1990s on the basis of a modernized BMD-3 light infantry fighting vehicle. Essentially, designers fitted the vehicle out with a 125mm 2A75 smoothbore gun, the result being a genuine, lightweight floating tank, and one suitable for airborne use.

    The nimble vehicle accelerates to up to 70 km per hour off-road, and is equipped with firepower comparable to Russia’s T-72 and T-90 main battle tank. In this regard, Russia’s arsenal is unique, with no other country fielding a comparable system.

    Does Airborne Really Need Another Air-Droppable Tank Destroyer?

    One of the key features in the Sprut is its gun’s stabilizer, which allows for accurate firing while swimming up to 10 km/h during a three gale storm. This makes the artillery piece an indispensable tool not only among the airborne forces, but for amphibious assault operations as well.

    A 2S25 «Sprut-SD» self-propelled anti-tank gun crosses a water obstacle during a military machine demonstration at the Alabino training ground held as part of the international military-technical forum ARMY-2016.

    Someone who knows little about artillery might get the impression that the Airborne Troops are living the good life, demanding the creation of a new self-propelled gun even though they already have the relatively modern Sprut, which has good potential for modernization.

    But experts understand that things aren’t so simple. The new 122mm Lotus is expected to replace the Nona-S, not the Sprut. Amid its seeming universality, the Sprut is intended more as a direct-fire anti-tank platform. Its gun’s low arc of elevation makes it a poor howitzer.

    In that sense, the Nona (Russian acronym for ‘Newest Ordinance of Ground Artillery’) is a tool of a completely different sort. The air-droppable mortar can angle its gun almost vertically, firing its heavy rounds over tall obstacles, or even from closed position.

    The explosion from one high-explosive Nona round digs a five-meter-deep crater into the ground and sprinkles over 3,000 fragments around it; the projectile has a range of 9 kilometers. The Nona can fire cumulative ammunition, hitting tanks at distances up to a kilometer.

    Another feature of the Nona is its ability to used captured enemy rounds. The gun is literally ‘omnivorous’, successfully able to fire 120mm high explosive fragmentation rounds from German, French, Israeli, Spanish and Chinese army arsenals.

    Finally, the weapon uses guided munitions, a laser target designator raining down the shells on the lightly armored top of the turrets of enemy tanks, resulting in nearly a 100% rate of destruction.

    Nevertheless, for all its merits, the Nona is not eternal. It’s been in production since the 1970s, and is gradually becoming obsolete; therefore it’s no surprise that Airborne Forces Command has been thinking about developing a new artillery piece to take the Nona’s place.

    New Generation

    The secretive Zauralets-D project, based on the BMD-4M and BTR-MDM chassis, had its chance to become Airborne’s next-gen artillery. Conceived in both 120mm and 152mm variants, that weapon was intended to surpass all existing systems in range, and be used as a mortar, howitzer or cannon interchangeably. However, work on the project was suspended on the initiative of the Defense Ministry.

    Later, the TsNIITochMash design bureau explained that the experience gathered in creating the Zauralets-D has been transferred to another secretive project, code-named the Lotus, featuring a new high-reliability 120mm cannon, and other improvements all around.

    And although information from open information sources on the Lotus remain sparse, it’s clear that the new gun, mounted on a new chassis, will provide the Blue Berets with new fearsome capabilities to be envied by any major military. After the deployment of such a system, the firepower of the Russian Airborne Troops will increase substantially.
