Koalitsiya-SV Self-Propelled Guns get into Russia’s inventory November 20, 2016

According to chief of missile and artillery troops Maj. Gen. Mikhail Matveevsky, the Russian Land Force's artillery brigades will begin receiving Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns in the near future.

The Koalitsya-SV self-propelled gun was first seen in public during the May 9, 2015 8 military parade in Red Square, Moscow.

Matveevsky underscored the automated weapon's innovative multi-round simultaneous impact firing capabilities, delivering several volleys at various trajectories to engage a target at the same time.

Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns will serve as the blueprint for robotized artillery systems in the future according to General Matveevsky.

"Robotisation is one of the armed forces' priority areas. The development of the Koalitsiya-SV artillery complex is already being finalized. This model is the first step toward the robotisation of artillery systems," Matveevsky underlined.
