«Coalition-SV»put on the tank platform «Armata», which is currently doing on «Uralvagonzavod». As told «Izvestia» representative CRI «Petrel», which is developing the «coalition» for the Defense Ministry, the complex will be designed as a removable module that is integrated into a tracked platform through universal interfaces. As needed such a module can be put on the wheel platform.

— Total for the «Coalition» is considered about 10 different platforms, including several wheel. The final selection will be done after the Defense Ministry official tests, but the module «Coalition-SV», which we are currently developing will be almost universal, — explained the source of «Izvestia».

With all this, he noted that the unification is not complete and land option module «Coalition-SV» will be different from the first sea by charging guns. In addition, the representative of the «Petrel» stressed that as a platform for self-propelled artillery system (ACS) can throw and T-90.

— New tank chassis has the highest level of booking. Such reservations for artillery system, beating a few 10’s of km, sverhizbytochno. Because ACS put on «Armata» only makes sense to unify, — said the representative of the plant.
At the same time a tank expert, chief editor of the industry magazine «Arsenal Fatherland» Victor Murakhovski said in an interview with «Izvestia» that gun
«Coalition-SV»fits under the chassis of the «Armata» even better than the T-90 chassis.

— «Armata» — it’s all the same equipment and the latest generation of engine, and on the box and on the chassis, in other words for all that will be used specifically for the «Coalition». The «Almaty was» chassis load capacity — 30 tons, it is much higher than that of T-90 — Murakhovski explained.

Representative of the «Petrel» also noted that tracked more stable platform when shooting than wheel, and does not ask for extension poles. At the same time, he did not rule out that, in connection with the transition to wheeled platform ground forces useful «Coalition» on wheels.

— We expect that once the platform «coalition» will be the main artillery system, replacing «Mstu-C», «Acacia» and other settings of 152 mm caliber, — said the representative of the «Petrel.»
Settings «Coalition-SV», before they get in the Russian army to go in 2013, production tests, and in 2014 — municipal conformance tests requirements.

With all of this installation «MSTA-S», which is currently rearming the army in 2020 morally obsolete.

— For a while, «MSTA-S» will stand in service as a reserve, and later, I think they will sell for just a limit as to the guns of 152 mm caliber is a need in the world market — said the «Petrel» .

Official representatives of the Defense Ministry declined to comment on the needs of the troops in the instruments of «Coalition-SV».
