    Seems A-Kholoptov wasn't really happy with the sudden release of that image with apparently other people's watermark, based on what he wrote on his blog.

    Yes, its a 2A42 installed rotated around its axis in a similar fashion to the one installed on Ka-52. It can fire co-axially to the main gun or as you can see, elevate independently.
    As others pointed out, the way it is mounted could be an effort to reduce the impact of the muzzle flash on the nearby gunner sight.

    Actually the way it is positioned It looks like when it is level the muzzle would be very close the the gun mantlet... but looking closely it looks like it is side on so the muzzle flash that normally comes out sideways would go vertically and directly down in this setup...

    Looking at the armoured cover on the gunner sight... the way it opens the open cover would provide protection from any muzzle blast from the cannon I suspect... there looks to be a coaxial MG mounted next to the 30mm cannon, which would make a lot of sense... this is a heavy tank for operating in tough environments like urban areas so a high elevation 30mm cannon along with a rifle calibre machine gun would allow the tank crew to shoot at targets high up on upper floors of buildings with 30mm cannon fire and 30 cal MG rounds... a very useful feature...

    Annual Report of Uralvagonzavod Research and Production Corporation JSC for 2018

    The annual report of JSC Uralvagonzavod Research and Production Corporation named after F.E. Dzerzhinsky ”for 2018, containing a number of interesting information about some of the works of the association in the military field.

Kubinka, 06.25.2019 (c) bmpd

    Military products

    In 2018, the creation of a 152-mm interspecific artillery complex of the brigade "Coalition-SV" remained among the main priorities. Preliminary tests of prototypes of self-propelled guns on tracked and wheeled chassis were held at Russian landfills. They will be continued in 2019.

    In 2018, preliminary tests of samples of artillery-commander armaments, created in the interests of the battalion link in the experimental design work (R & D) Sketch, were started. These are the 120-mm Phlox self-propelled guns on the chassis of an armored car Ural, the Magnolia on the chassis of an armored two-link crawler conveyor, and also the 82-mm Drak mortar on the armored car of the KAMAZ cross-country vehicle.

    As part of the State Program for the Development of the Military-Industrial Complex for 2011–2020. The industrial technology and technological bench complex for setting up and testing highly mobile artillery and mortar weapons of the battalion link were created and in 2018 introduced during the creation and serial production (RCD “Installation-120”).

    The creation of a 57-mm anti-aircraft artillery complex of near-line air defense continued. Successfully completed the preliminary tests of the transport-loading machine and machine repair and maintenance of the composition of the anti-aircraft complex. Preliminary tests of combat vehicles continue, most of the shooting is completed.

    With the use of the scientific and technical reserve of the ROC "Derivation-Air Defense" a 57-mm ship-mounted artillery gun was developed. Two of its samples are being manufactured for delivery in 2019 as part of an export contract.

    In part of the mortar armament, the design and development work was completed on the creation of 82-mm mortar 2B24 and ammunition. Its ending opens up prospects for equipping troops with a mortar complex with an increased range of fire and a mine of increased power.

    The complex of works was devoted to the creation of uninhabited cannon-machine-gun modules of calibers of 12.7 mm, 30 mm and 57 mm for equipping machines for various purposes. They passed their preliminary tests, both autonomous and as part of combat vehicles.

    The manufacture of samples of the combat module DUBM-57 is being completed, its automatic 57-mm guns have passed autonomous debugging tests with firing. At the forum “Army-2018”, the module was demonstrated as part of the T-15 “Armata” infantry fighting vehicle, arousing considerable interest among the participants and guests of the forum. Currently, the module is being prepared for preliminary tests scheduled for 2019

    When performing the ROC "Don" in 2018, the working design documentation of a mechanized high-capacity bridge was developed. The bridge is intended for the operational device of the bridge crossing over the moats, canals and water barriers up to 26 m wide and passing through them by wheeled and tracked vehicles weighing up to 60 tons.

    When performing the “Tick” R & D project in 2018, working design documentation was developed for a family of ground-level linear barriers on wheeled and tracked base chassis with a unified mining set.

    When performing stage 4 of the R & D project “Fire” in 2018, state testing was carried out, the requirements of the TTZ were met in full. By the decision of the MVK of design documentation, the letter “O1” was assigned and a multi-functional tracked armored robotic complex of a heavy class based on a special fire engine was recommended for mass production.

    All work planned for 2018 was completed within the framework of:

    ROC "Perfection-A";
    OCD "Filtration";
    SCR OKR "Armata-PBC-UKBTM";
    SC Research and Development "Calligraphy-2";
    SCR R & D “Osnova-46”, stage 3;
    SCR OCR "Armata-PBC", stage 3.9;
    SCR OKR "Armata-PBC", stage 5;
    SCR ROC "Paint" contract;
    SCR ROC "Sphere 82-M1" contract;
    SCR OCD "Coalition-BP", stage 8;
    SCR OCR "Armata", stage 5;
    SCR OKR "Sokol-V", stage 5;
    SCR OKR "Armata", modernization of the 125-mm cannon 2A82-1M;
    SCR OKR "Armata-PBC", coordination of the applicability of the developed shots, manufacture and supply of guns and barrels for testing;
    SCR OKR "Sokol-V", the coordination of the applicability of the product "Sokol-V" in the system 2A82-1M. Development of design documentation and production of a ballistic installation on a B-4 carriage with a type 2A82 system and a pipe layout. Completion of the product 2A82-1M in the object

    Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visits the assembly shop of Uralvagonzavod Corporation in Nizhny Tagil

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu arrived in Nizhny Tagil today. The head of the military department decided to personally inspect the plant, which runs a state defense order for the production, including of the latest T-14 Armata tanks.

    In the assembly shop, work is in full swing. Specialists are in a hurry to fulfill the state defense order for the deep modernization of T-72 tanks and other armored vehicles. On this site, the installers change the entire electrical filling of the combat vehicle. “There are up to 5 kilometers of wires. The operations are all very important, more complicated than that of a surgeon even. Each operation is submitted to the controller separately. For operations, for a passport, ”says Ilya Selivanov, locksmith and electrician for the assembly shop.

    Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu personally checks the progress of the state defense order. In the same workshop, various modifications of the T-90S tanks are also being assembled, which are in service with not only Russia, but also other countries. And by the way, not only them.

    “130 UVZ workshop is the only tank conveyor in the country. It is here that the most modern T-14 tank known to the whole world under the name “Armata” is assembled today. ”

    The work, of course, is very responsible. Therefore, specialists of only the highest class with one or even several higher educations work here. Assembling tanks for them is a special pride. “Of course, there is pride. Very big pride. I have a daughter and a son, they say: dad, dad, did you collect this? I say, yes, there is such a thing, ”says Dmitry Frolov, a fitter and electrician at the assembly shop.

    Sergei Shoigu was introduced to the timing and assembly process of military vehicles, as well as presented new developments of highly protected robotic systems of a heavy class. The head of the defense ministry was satisfied. So the plant will be provided with new orders for at least a few more years.

    What is the letter P on some tower parts? There is such a country. It’s called Paki .. Paki ... like cherubs. I forgot. We will conditionally call it Panama.

    According to bmpd, the question of a possible supply of T-90S tanks to Pakistan is currently not being discussed.

    You can learn more about modern Pakistan, its armed forces, military-industrial complex, economy and foreign policy in the new book of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies “Pakistan: Beyond Stereotypes” - a free electronic version is available here.
