    Well, if you change the road wheel spacings, lengthen the hull, change the engine, change the transmission to an electromechanical transmission (just saying), change the seating arrangement, reduce the armor thickness to 2 cm, ..., then why do you say it uses a T-90 chassis?

    Nothing else, thats why.
    You are speculating on most of those changes btw, just wait until we see the uncovered vehicle.
    There was that universal T-90 chassis:

    Which had space for more crew in the hull. It is not exactly a hard solution. Same with armor.

    Armata is well known to not be ready for Koalition yet.

    The image you posted is not a T-90 chassis. I believe it was called Eh300. It has some commonality with T-90, for example, it is using T-90's road wheels. In reality the differences it has with a T-90 chassis is what I listed above, except for that of the electromechanical transmission.

    A tank chassis is never suitable for an SP artillery system like Koalitsiya. A heavily modified tank chassis is a different matter.

    Anyway, what I am saying is that the road wheel spacing in the latest pictures seem to be larger than those in the T-90; so the chassis can't be just a downarmored variant of a T-90 chassis.

    Don't the pictures you posted show that, at least the vehicles in those pictures, don't use a T-90 chassis? What they actually use is a different matter.

    The hull interior is gutted. No carousel for one so there is plenty crew space.

    There is no carousel space on the Armata chassis which the Coalition turret is designed for so there wont be any carousel space when fitted to the T-90... which leaves no space for the commander and gunner.

    During tests that is OK because cables connected to the turret would allow the commander and gunner to operate the turret remotely.... perhaps in a van for the purposes of testing, but it would clearly only be a temporary setup.

    Well, if you change the road wheel spacings, lengthen the hull, change the engine, change the transmission to an electromechanical transmission (just saying), change the seating arrangement, reduce the armor thickness to 2 cm, ..., then why do you say it uses a T-90 chassis?

    Why change any of that? If they are using the T-90 hull for testing then it would make sense to not modify it very much at all... there is no point as this is just a temporary turret holder till the armata is ready.

    But the images shown in the last few pages [seem to] show the road wheels actually have larger spacing. This seem to also apply to the double-barreled variant of the Koalitsiya that was mounted on a chassis that used T-80 style road wheels; you can see an image of this variant a few pages back.

    Eh has a suspension based on the T-90s, and the same engine. That is pretty much commonality as far as universal chassis go. Armata is on a heavily modified T-90 offshoot. How heavily we can debate but I'd rather wait for good photos.

    I see what you are saying about the wheel spacing, but that falls within "modified" T-90 chassis. Just indicates what they started working with.

    Does not really matter, just that it is not Armata yet.

    Shifting the wheel spacing is nothing... the only powered wheels are the front drive sprockets, so moving the wheel positions just means removing the existing wheel mounts and attaching new ones to support the different load.

    When the Turret is full of 152mm ammo most of the weight of the vehicle will be to the rear so changing the wheel spacing to allow for the extra weight at the rear makes perfect sense.

    On a MBT the turret centralises the weight of the turret front armour and the gun into the centre of the vehicle, so a MBTs wheel spacing is even because the three main weights on a tank... hull front armour, turret, and engine are fairly evenly spaced.

    And as mentioned... this is a T series tank that is already in service chassis... the Armata chassis is not ready yet.

    I would speculate as they are making two armata chassis, one with the engine at the rear and one with the engine in the front allowing rear access to the hull for troops or ammo etc that the chassis for troops/artillery/ambulance version/etc might be slightly longer than the model with the engine to the rear that will be the MBT model. Of course with the ammo in the turret perhaps the Coalition might be based on the rear engine chassis, or it could be based on the engine forward model to allow even more ammo loaded directly into the rear hull.

    Koalitsiya is an extremely high rate of fire gun, irrespective of its single-barrel or double barrel developments. Koalitsiya is in a totally new class with respect to its rate of fire.

    As I have written previously on this forum, a higher rate of fire increases the destructive capability of an artillery system on a per round basis. This is the main rational behind the development of Koalitsiya.

    In term of ballistics/range it is superior to even 2S5, which itself is in a totally different class than that of Msta-S. It should be kept in mind that 2S5 was/is an <army level>/<operational command level> gun, while Msta-S was/is a divisional/brigade level gun.

    In terms of an analogy, Koalitsiya to Msta is like an automatic rifle to a semiautomatic pistol.

    uhhhh... not sure what you mean dude.

    2S19 and 2S5 fire the same ammo, and have practically the same range. 2S5 is mostly a cheaper artillery system, while 2S19 is more recent and totally enclosed, much more armored, much more automated. The 2S19 is intended for armored troops mostly, following tanks in all kinds of environement, while the 2S5 is a classic long range artillery.

    2S5 has a slightly longer barrel and maybe higher pressure tolerance, but ammo are strictly the same.

    2S3 however fire the same ammo too, but only limited to a smaller charge load than bigger systems (smaller load of propellant for the same case pattern I think)...


    Or am I totally wrong? In fact I think 2S3 and thus the D-20 howitzer, both use the WW2 (infact pre WW2) pattern cartridge, as used in ML-20, D-1 or ISU-152 systems.... while the Msta and Giatsint systems both use a newly developped case pattern, bigger.

    Koalitsya will use the same pattern ammo, or a brand new 3rd generation 152mm case?

    As far as I know, we can say 152mm systems are in two category:

    ML-20
    D-1
    SU / ISU-152
    D-20
    2S3 , are all "medium" power and range weapons, reaching 15-18km with standard ammo (much less for D-1 small howitzer)

    while 2A65
    2A36
    2S5
    2S19, are a level above, usually reaching 28-30km with standard ammo.

    Question is, where is Koalitsya? Judging by new gun, longer, higher pressure tolerance, and possibly new type of propellant for the cartridge (while retaining case pattern of 2S19 and having the ability to use old surplus ammo), i'd say 32 or 33km as standard is expectable, and if a new cartridge comes with it, somewhere between 35-40km

    What rounds specifically, I can't say. (As in don't know, not being mysterious).
