2S35 Koalitsiya-SV SPH

The 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV is a Russian self-propelled gun first seen in public in 2015 during rehearsals for the Moscow Victory Day Parade. The 2S35 is expected to supplement and eventually replace the 2S19 Msta in the Russian Ground Forces. The 2S35 is expected to have a very high level of automation that will dramatically reduce the crew number, to perhaps just two or three people located in an armored capsule below the two front hull hatches. Initial reports describe the main armament as a 2A88 152 mm gun with a range of up to 70 kilometers using precision-guided rounds and up to 40 km with standard rounds that are currently used on Msta-S. The claimed average rate of fire is around 16 rounds per minute,[8](15+) with a maximum rate of 20 rounds per minute due to the new pneumatic loader. Estimated ammunition load is around 60-70 rounds] and using a special loader vehicle the recharge time for full ammunition load is 15 minutes. The secondary armament equipped on 2S35 is a 12.7 mm X 108 mm ZiD Kord Remote weapon station. The 2S35 is not a classic SPG, but rather a highly robotised system, with a high degree of automation.
