Derivatsiya-PVO SPAAG Will Begin State Trials in 2018 15 May, 2018

The Derivatsiya-PVO self-propelled anti-aircraft gun (SPAAG) will enter state trials later this year, a Russian defence industry source has told Jane’s. He added that a prototype of the newest 57 mm SPAAG developed by the Nizhny Novgorod-based Burevestnik institute, a subsidiary of Rostec’s Uralvagonzavod (UVZ), had already been manufactured and sent for preliminary trials.

Developed based on the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, Derivatsiya-PVO was designed to engage unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), cruise missiles, surface-to-air munitions, tactical aircraft, combat helicopters, and single rockets fired by multiple rocket systems, as well as lightly armoured ground and surface targets. The vehicle can destroy an aerial target flying at a speed of up to 500 m/s at an altitude of up to 4.5 km and at a slant range of up to 6 km.
