    Russia should build up its artillery so it can rapidly level cities if needed.

    Coalition will replace MSTA on a long run, short term no.  

    M109A7 is quite good actually, tho i am in general not fan of M109s as baseline design at all.

    Seems good to me no like crew will suffocate when the gun breach opens. It has a fume extractor right.



    Anyway I agree with Gary the MSTA is probably going to go when all the Akatsiyas are gone and this will most likely only be in the 2040s at the earliest.

    The truck mounted Koalitsiya is a Bereg replacement as the navy clearly feels that the Bereg is inadiquate for the role of inefective coastal defence.

    What would make wrong the 2S35 (on the armata platform) as replacement of the A-222 Bereg?

    It need to be something important in order to introduce in fact a new platform.

    What makes light this truck?

    To note that the A-222 Bereg is over 43 tons. This will not be lighter.

    Where this weapon is necessary likely a light brigade makes little sense. Where this weapon is necessary is likely to see Armata Brigades.

    Anyone heard or read any info if Russians are adapting their artillery for use against slow moving UAV. If Koalitsiya comes with radar that can track said UAV simply adding programmable time fuse to standard HE shell can create very cheap and effective way to deal with reconnaissance or attack UAV loitering at heights up to 10 km, or even more.

    Also to save cost I think Russia should not equip all Koalitsiya vehicles with radar, stick it to 1 vehicle per battery and telemetry can be transited to other vehicles no problem.

    Now i wonder if you actually ever went to the school of any kind. There is term for an example... "light tank" which isnt light at all at about fkn 30 tons. Take term "light" lightly...no pun intended.

    Light brigades are wheeled. This is wheeled... which somehow points toward fact that it will be used in dominantly wheeled future units. While tracked Coalition will be in other units dominantly equiped with tracked platforms. Not sure how confusing can it be.

    Where did you get info that light brigades will be BMD-4 based? Because you would be the first source of such information ever for me Suspect

    Light brigades will be formed from wheeled platforms like Boomerang, Typhoons, Tigrs, Scropions etc.

    BMD-4s platforms are VDV exclusive as of now.

    Not sure about such ability, but its alot cheaper to build such system around airburst grenade launcher for an example.

    The Aneit system is used on the tanks to create air burst 125mm shells... I don't see why they could not do the same with the larger calibre 152mm rounds...

    Perhaps even a command detonation system could be used where the round has a small receiver in its tail and the shell is fired and the two large antenna arrays track the outgoing shell and the target and when they are close enough a command is sent to detonate the round.

    The alternative is an expensive and very accurate time piece inside the shell used to count down the flight time to an intercept point with the target...

    The problem is very high levels of accuracy is needed, which usually makes them more expensive than something simpler.

    And a command detonation system means when the actual round gets close enough if can be detonate, meaning if the target alters its course the round can still be detonated at its closest intercept position.

    It also means in a complete miss scenario the fuse can disable so the round does not explode, which reduces its risk to damage something else.

    So you mean SS-29 (wheeled) brigades are light with vehicles over 100 tons when armed...

    So you mean the BMD-4M (tracked) brigades will be "heavy" with vehicles around 15 tons...

    So you mean the Boomerang vehicles (wheeled) with around 25 tons are lighter than the BMD-4M (tracked) vehicles with around 15 tons...

    So pretty... brainless people always remain the same. Your unfortunate mother did not good work giving you a brain, and there is nothing she can do to improve it at this point.

    As always you was trying to posture as the smarter in the room, but as alwyas you failed.

    First of all... we are not talking about some imaginary light brigades, but the reorganisation of the armed forces that Russia is planning to undergo, which will include splitting brigades into light, medium and heavy. Light will include almost entirely wheeled platforms (Boomerang, BTR-82A, Typhoon, Tigr-M etc) , medium will be based on mostly medium weight tracked platforms (Kurganec, BMP-2, BMP-3 etc), heavy brigades will be based on heavy tracked platforms (T-15, T-14, T-90 etc).

    Now.. what exactly you are failing to see ffor some reason is that wheeled Coalition is to be attached to light brigades as their SPG obviously. I have no clue what is so confusing to you here. MSTA-B, and Coalition on tracked platform will be kept in heavy brigades so they can follow up with rest of the units.

    BMD-4M wont be in Armys light brigades as that is not role it was made for, it will as always serve in VDV, which fyi is separate branch.

    Son, i mocked your litterate understanding of term "light". There is also light aircraft carrier that has displacement of 30.000t, is that more clear for you now? "Light", does not have to mean its fkn light. Are you using google translate to read the posts or what?

    Idea behind "light" brigade for it is to be whole wheeled, to cost less, to have great road mobility, reduced operating costs.. do you understand now? Light, like Stryker brigades US formed.

    PT-76 was more of an amphibious fire support vehicle, it was tank as much as i am Queen of England to be honest, but it was a designs limitation. On other hand, M551 Sheridan, PL-01, FV101 Scorpion, MMWT.. and list goes on, for about 50 more designs though last 60 years.

    Yea... i am really stupid. thumbsup

    SS-29 is not part of the Army, it goes under Strategic Missile Troops, that for starters.

    Second.. you are aware that for an example light briagdes can have truck based engineering vehicles that are like 30+ tons?

    You are totally failing to understand what light brigade means man, i am.. like... pwnd

    No, it was designed as SPG for new light brigades

    What makes light this truck?

    To note that the A-222 Bereg is over 43 tons. This will not be lighter.

    Where this weapon is necessary likely a light brigade makes little sense. Where this weapon is necessary is likely to see Armata Brigades.

    Now i wonder if you actually ever went to the school of any kind. There is term for an example... "light tank" which isnt light at all at about fkn 30 tons. Take term "light" lightly...no pun intended.

    Light brigades are wheeled. This is wheeled... which somehow points toward fact that it will be used in dominantly wheeled future units. While tracked Coalition will be in other units dominantly equiped with tracked platforms. Not sure how confusing can it be.

    You mean light brigades like the future Russian BMD-4M brigades? Wheeled?

    Your comment is as ridiculous as it sounds.

    Where did you get info that light brigades will be BMD-4 based? Because you would be the first source of such information ever for me  Suspect

    Light brigades will be formed from wheeled platforms like Boomerang, Typhoons, Tigrs, Scropions etc.

    BMD-4s platforms are VDV exclusive as of now.

    I said not that light brigades will be all of BMD-4M.

    I said that it will be light brigades of BMD-4M. The brigades of BMD-4M will be light and will be tracked.

    Your previous comment was a joke. You was talking about "light tanks"  to say in the next sentence that light is wheeled. All the "light tanks" that you know are wheeled? Because most of them are also tracked (PT-76,...).

    As always you was trying to posture as the smarter in the room, but as alwyas you failed.

    First of all... we are not talking about some imaginary light brigades, but the reorganisation of the armed forces that Russia is planning to undergo, which will include splitting brigades into light, medium and heavy. Light will include almost entirely wheeled platforms (Boomerang, BTR-82A, Typhoon, Tigr-M etc) , medium will be based on mostly medium weight tracked platforms (Kurganec, BMP-2, BMP-3 etc), heavy brigades will be based on heavy tracked platforms (T-15, T-14, T-90 etc).

    Now.. what exactly you are failing to see ffor some reason is that wheeled Coalition is to be attached to light brigades as their SPG obviously. I have no clue what is so confusing to you here. MSTA-B, and Coalition on tracked platform will be kept in heavy brigades so they can follow up with rest of the units.

    BMD-4M wont be in Armys light brigades as that is not role it was made for, it will as always serve in VDV, which fyi is separate branch.

    Son, i mocked your litterate understanding of term "light". There is also light aircraft carrier that has displacement of 30.000t, is that more clear for you now? "Light", does not have to mean its fkn light. Are you using google translate to read the posts or what?

    Idea behind "light" brigade for it is to be whole wheeled, to cost less, to have great road mobility, reduced operating costs.. do you understand now? Light, like Stryker brigades US formed.

    PT-76 was more of an amphibious fire support vehicle, it was tank as much as i am Queen of England to be honest, but it was a designs limitation. On other hand, M551 Sheridan, PL-01, FV101 Scorpion, MMWT.. and list goes on, for about 50 more designs though last 60 years.

    Yea... i am really stupid. thumbsup

    And where is the MT-LB (tracked) in your pretty analysys? Embarassed Embarassed

    And where is the 2S21 Msta-K in the current wheeled "light brigades" of your pretty analysis? Embarassed Embarassed
