I think the modern pods in Su-34 like Pika m will bigger role. The did parade Syria and you can see newest radar to deal with uav effectively. There is radar is in distanceThere seems to be little coverage so far on Russian technical means of intelligence gathering. Other than planes like A-50U,A-100, Il-20/IL-38 family and Tu-214R's. I wonder if Russians have anything else ? Su-24MR and Tu-22M3R seems no longer in operation.
Also things like Spy Satellite. I'm curious whether Razdan and Liana have become operational.
One of the key roles in the work of Russian artillery in Ukraine is assigned to the 152-mm Msta-S self-propelled artillery mount. At an arms exhibition in 1993 in Abu Dhabi, Msta-S hit 38 out of 40 targets at a distance of 15 km. The unit has been modernized several times, in Ukraine the 2S19M1 and 2S19M2 versions are now used. According to the gunners, "Msta-SM2" proved to be excellent in the battles in Ukraine. The firing range of self-propelled guns with a conventional projectile is 25 km; active-reactive - up to 29 km, self-propelled guns ammunition 50 shells. Rate of fire 10 rounds per minute.
It doesn't. It has the same 47 cal gun tube, more or less comparable in ballistics with NATO 39 cal, but less strained.Msta-SM2 has a longer barrel gun. So of course it has more range. It is all about propellant chemicals and barrel length.
