Russian Defense Ministry will provide a view of the state defense order new Russian tank “Armata” and howitzers “Coalition-SV” in a protected and fenced area of the international exhibition of arms Russia Arms Expo RAE-2015.
“Some of the exhibits at the Uralvagonzavod RAE 2015 will include its latest development: 2S35” Coalition-SV “, the T-15 and T-14” Russia Arms Expo 2015 will be held from 9 to 12 September in Nizhny Tagil.
Perspective T-14 “Armata” was first shown to the public at the Victory Parade on Red Square in Moscow on May 9 and was highly appreciated by Russian and foreign specialists. The main difference from the existing analogue machines in that it has an isolated crew. It can shoot 125 mm tank gun capable of burning a meter of steel.
Additionally, will be shown; Russian 152-mm self-propelled howitzer 2S35 Brigadier link “Coalition-SV”, as shown in the Victory Parade, designed to destroy tactical nuclear weapons, artillery and mortar batteries, tanks and other armored vehicles, anti-tank weapons, manpower, air defense and missile defense, control centers, as well as to destroy field fortifications and obstructing the maneuvers of enemy reserves in the depth of his defense.
Tank T-14 (index GBTU – Object 148) – the main battle tank, equipped with a 125 mm smoothbore gun 2A82 (with optional 152-mm 2A83) with remote (uninhabited tower), a fully digital control.

2S35 “Coalition-SV” – Russian project of self-propelled artillery installation of class self-propelled howitzers. At the beginning of 2015 made 8 units to participate in the anniversary Victory Day parade in 2015 in honor of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
Originally, the ACS will be the development of 2S19 “MSTA-S”. However, in the process of creating a new ACS by setting fire control system, new weapons, robotic complex uninhabitable tower was obtained a new generation of self-propelled guns. The original version was developed in ACS option to increase the rate of fire, as seen at the parade May 9, 2015 as the basic version of the ACS has been shown in more reliable and cheaper single-barreled version.
From the public statements that the new ACS has a range of 2 times greater than that of “MSTA-S” and most severe SAU NATO. Common shells range is 30-40 km, and 70 km – active and reactive. In comparison, the hardest SAU US M109A6 «Paladin” has a range of 22-30 km, depending on types of ammunition, and the previous record for the shooting rockets active-German PzH2000 ACS has the maximum distance of 56 km.
ACS has the ability to work in the “barrage of fire” (eng. Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact , at the same time getting a few rounds) when the number of consecutive shots made with the expectation that the shells came almost simultaneously to the goal that is achieved through a high-speed pneumatic loading system.
For self-defense ACS has a remote-controlled machine gun and bulletproof and Ballistic book. The crew and the computer system of fire control are more bronekapsuly as other BBM platform “Armata”.
Most likely, the tactical unit ACS “coalition” can receive target information from the T-14, as indicated in his comments TRC “Star”: “Due to the AFAR,” Armata “is positioned as … complex military reconnaissance and targeting.” Harmonization of data of all the Armed Forces combat vehicles to the brigade guaranteed standards and technologies “ACS TK” developed concern “Constellation”. The family of combat vehicles “Armata” (ACS, “coalition”, the T-14, T-15, BMP, etc.) necessarily completed a new version of “ASU TK” with the means of communication with the new fifth-generation module UPTK that manages real fight time.
The first model sample of ACS was presented in 2006 on the basis MSTA-S self-propelled guns.
In early 2010, Russian Defense Minister said that the project is not funded by the state, as the established practice of the developers in the early stages of weapons were through self-finance for development. Similarly, “Coalition-SV” in the same way fund development “Carapace-C1.”
In August 2012 the newspaper “Izvestia” published information that the artillery unit “Coalition-SV” is planned to be installed on the platform “Armata” (currently used T-90 chassis
In 2013, two prototypes of ACS were made “Coalition” in 2014 planned production of 10 more units to participate in the parade May 9, 2015 – in honor of the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
- 2S35 “Coalition-SV” – the basic variant, weapons – Howitzer 152-mm gun turret in the desert.
- Articulated ACS.
- 2S35-1 “Coalition-SV-SH” – April 4, 2013, OJSC “KAMAZ” published a picture of one of the elaborations appearance wheeled variant having the code “Coalition-SV-CABG.” As a base used truck chassis KAMAZ-6560. The prototype wheel ACS is in the process of manufacture. It was assumed, on 25 September 2013, a prototype version of the wheeled self-propelled guns will be demonstrated at the exhibition Russian Expo Arms in Nizhny Tagil, but that did not happen. In contrast to the first prototypes 2S35, 2S35-1 has one gun caliber 152 mm.

T-15 (Index GBTU – Object 149 , “Barberry” ) – Advanced Russian armored combat tracked vehicle on a universal platform track “Armata”. The term state tests – 2016-2017, after their completion will begin mass production. It will be the first in the Armed Forces of heavy Russian BMP (at heavily armored T-14).
BMP is based on heavy tracked platform “Armata”. It was first demonstrated at the Victory Parade in Moscow in 2015.
Engine and chassis
The engine has a capacity of about 1500 hp (Probably Chelyabinsk A-85-3A) and service of its system, and the mission will be located between the frontal armor protection and habitable capsule. High power will allow to accelerate the heavy car to speeds of over 70 km / h.
Chassis – most likely front-drive wheel. The active suspension allows the car to travel at high speed over rough terrain and to reduce crew fatigue and increase accuracy.
Arms heavy infantry fighting vehicles located in a desert fighting compartment “Epoch” circular rotation located above the troop compartment. Photographs seen indicate use of 30-mm 2A42 automatic gun with selective ammunition supply and coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun, and two twin launchers for anti-tank systems “Cornet”. It was reported that ammunition will consist of 500 rounds for the gun, 2000 rounds of ammunition for machine gun and four anti-tank missiles or anti-aircraft missile 9M133 9M133FM-3.
The front protection will have a combined maximum protection to ensure the protection of the crew, not only from the bullets, shrapnel and small-caliber projectiles, but also from powerful ammunition tank guns and anti-tank missiles. V-shaped bottom will substantially strengthen and reduce the likelihood damage from crew or land mines. Tower crew compartment “Epoch” T-15, as well as Tower of the crew compartment of the tank T-14 on the platform of “Armata” is uninhabited and separated from the capsule with the crew. The defeat of the tower and the undermining of its ammunition not dangerous landing and the crew.
Antitank system designed to defeat modern tanks with active protection.
BMP has a strong support for the work in the mode of the air defense system of close combat with an emphasis on the destruction of the UAV and anti-tank helicopters class Apache.
