The Russians don't really do shoot and scoot with their towed howitzers - they see it as a massive waste of time. Usually what they do is prepare a fortified and camouflaged shelter nearby.
That makes sense... what makes SPAs easy to destroy, apart from their thin armour, is that the propellent and HE shells means any armour penetration will start a fire that will rapidly get out of control and destroy the vehicle and gun completely... you can see as much happening when suicide drones hit Orc SPAs where the crew bail and run and the vehicle goes up like a torch.
With towed guns you separate the crew and the ammo from the gun so you would need a direct hit on the gun with a substantial weapon to damage it and take it out of the fight... with the ammo not easy to spot or hit, and the gun relatively hard to destroy and the crew safe, it makes it a rather durable option... as well as being cheaper to buy and to operate.
Interesting that the 2S41 variation on towed guns, if that is indeed what it is for, means they can't really do what they are doing easily and would need to revert to a shoot and scoot method of operation... with computerised firing and targeting the setup and takedown time would essentially equate to the speed the recoil spades could be deployed at or recovered... so about as swift as an SPA really, but cheaper to operate and buy.
Is a towed version of coalition in the works?
I assume the 2S41 but there might be an actually towed version...
The extreme range of Coalition would be more for counter artillery support and better dispersion options on the battlefield I would assume... with perhaps a dozen shots fired before the first hit the ground so by the time the first shots were landing it would already be moving to a new position.
The 2S41 might be intended for shorter moves and more sustained target engagement?
Or perhaps I am wrong and it is more of a 2S5 type setup as a cheaper option to the more expensive model with a long barrel.
Small towed artillery however is still very good. Even more with guided rounds.
Not everything needs to be super long range... the D-30 was particularly popular because its mount allowed 360 degree engagements without having to move the gun.
Every track mounted SPG will be capable of shooting faster and will survive much more - the comparison between Caesar and K9 I have put here a while ago tells everything.
It is heavy enough not to need dropping spades and stabilizers, so can start shooting and run much faster.
The problem is that tracked vehicles leave easy to see tracks in dirt roads and cross country and even a cheap drone with a relatively light HEAT warhead can start a fire to destroy an SPA, while even a direct hit of an HEAT round on a towed gun might not take it out of action completely... setting fire to the ammo in an SPA will destroy the gun in the ensuing fire and explosions, but unless the HEAT warhead hits the barrel or something important that can't be replaced a towed gun might live to fight another day.
The giatsint S NEEDS a digital FCS and battlefield management system.
All of their artillery should be getting that and probably is, but I would say the Malka with its 50km range rounds would be better for counter battery fire much of the time...
The current 152mm rounds with 70km range is a good step forward but their reduced calibre 180km range HE shells will be a useful addition too... and now that the INF treaty is gone and is clearly not coming back all the medium and intermediate range missiles they used to have can be replaced by weapons that I think will sell like hotcakes on the international market because 500km to 5,000km range missiles are a useful range of weapons and would be particularly useful at sea for naval duties...
Something to work towards.
Of course further development of EM assisted guns will make higher gun velocity easier to achieve and improvements in scramjet technology could be applied to boost the performance of shells even further to result in rounds with the range of missiles with prices and costs closer to artillery shells.
At sea the west talks about swarms, but imagine a 203mm gun mount that can fire 100 rounds per minute, shells that weight 120kgs with a range of 250km... what western ship could withstand a barrage of 50 shells delivered in 30 seconds from 200km away?
Those new British destroyers have 48 SAMs in total, and they are reasonably well armed for western ships... and that is just one gun mount firing at them...
