    Advanced silent mortars start arriving for Russian Army

    According to a defence industry source, the 2B25 mortar is capable of silently destroying a target at a distance of over 1 km

    MOSCOW, May 7. /TASS/. The Russian Army has started to receive the most advanced 2B25 ‘Gull’ silent mortars, a source in the defense industry told TASS on Tuesday.

    "The deliveries of 2B25 silent mortars to the troops have begun. In particular, special-purpose units received several dozen such mortars recently. During its operation, the Gull proved its worth as an easy-to-operate and reliable weapon, which is actually stealthy," the source said.

    The 2B25 mortar is capable of silently destroying a target at a distance of over 1 km, the source added.

    The deliveries of 2B25 mortars to the Russian Army will be continued, the source said, without giving any other details.

    Russia will further carry out its work to improve silent mortars, the source noted. "Currently, specialists are studying the possibility of developing a silent mortar of a smaller caliber, presumably, a 60mm gun capable of striking targets at a distance of up to 3.5-4 km."

    The 82mm 2B25 ‘Gull’ mortar has been developed by the Burevestnik Central Research and Development Institute (part of the Uralvagonzavod defense manufacturer within the state hi-tech corporation Rostec). The mortar’s stated characteristics suggest that it is capable of striking targets at a distance of up to 1,200 m and at a rate of fire of 15 rounds per minute. The 2B25 is currently the sole silent mortar on the world arms market.

    The first photo of an unknown self-propelled gun on the basis of "Vityaz" appeared on the web

    Images of an unusual combat vehicle appeared on the web. The photographs depicted an armored two-link tracked carrier of the "Vityaz" family transported on a trailer - trawl.

    ts peculiarity is that on the base of the second “half” a rotating tower with a caliber of at least 120 mm is mounted. Details of the design can not be seen, since everything is securely covered with a tarpaulin.

    It is possible that before us is the Magnolia self-propelled artillery, the development of which was reported in 2017. The machine is designed to arm the formations deployed in the Arctic.

    It is possible that before us is the Magnolia self-propelled artillery, the development of which was reported in 2017. The machine is designed to arm the formations deployed in the Arctic.

    So basically an arctic Vena... the two chassis means if one half or the whole vehicle goes into the water through the ice it can use its powered connection to lift itself out of the water and back on to the ice and then drag the other half back up too. Most single chassis vehicles can't get back out of the water on their own as their weight generally breaks the ice as they try to get out so they act like an icebreaking ship when they try to get out of the water.

    The connection between these two vehicles of the Vityaz arctic tractor is hydraulically controlled and can change angles to lift one of the vehicles out of the water, and once one vehicle is out of the water it can then lift the other vehicle up too so the whole vehicle can get out of the water and onto the ice...

    It appears to have a very long barrel...
