    I agree that for Afv that 30 mm and 57mm will be kept 23mm will be phased out but as long as other countries use it it will be produced. 160mm, 180mm and 240mm are in Syria but haven't heard of any use of them unless anyone else has info on syrian army use???. Not sure if Russia has been providing ammo for them or not.

    There are reports of 2016 and 2017 about the 240mm 2S4 in active service in Russia.

    The 160mm and 180mm calibers are out.

    I know that 160mm and 180mm but I never said they were still in production I asked if anyone had reports on Syrian art using them as they have them in stock. And I wouldn't be surprised if Russia still had ammo in a warehouse somewhere Georgia still produces 160mm mortar rounds.

    In Syria weapons of both calibers seem to be present. In the case of the 180mm S23 it would be around 10 units, in the case of the 160mm M-160 and M-43 maybe over 200, in both cases without quit the loses of the war. Not easy to find reports, but there is something. As example The Military Balance count them and I remember something else. If there are not stocks it is possible that ammunition for both calibers be produced also in Syria.

    152-mm cannon 2A89

    At the International Military Technical Forum "Army-2017" JSC "Plant No. 9" (Ekaterinburg, the former special production of Uralmash) demonstrated the model of 152-mm gun 2A89. Presumably, the 2A89 gun was intended for a prospective self-propelled artillery unit 2C36 for the Zaurales-D missile system, developed for the Airborne Forces of Russia with the leading role of JSC Central Scientific Research Institute of Precision Engineering (JSC TSNIITOCHMASH). In 2016 it was reported that the ROC "Zauralets-D" was suspended in favor of the RK "Lotus" creating a self-propelled artillery gun in a caliber of 120 mm.
