Russian company Uralvagonzavod (UVZ), a subsidiary of defence and industrial group Rostec, announced in its 2018 annual report published on 3 July that it would step up its development of artillery systems.
In its report the company said that preliminary tests of the tracked and wheeled variants of the 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV 152 mm self-propelled howitzer (SPH) were carried out at several test ranges in 2018, and would be continued in 2019.
Preliminary tests have also been conducted with the Nabrosok family of field artillery systems, which includes the Floks, Magnoliya, and Drok self-propelled mortars. “In 2018 UVZ introduced the Ustanovka-120 test-bed to conduct setting-to work and trials of battalion-level mortar systems,” said the report.
