The 152mm Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled gun, with its maximum firing range of up to 70 kilometers, is designed to eliminate enemy tactical nuclear weapon systems, artillery and mortar batteries, armored units and infantry, anti-tank weaponry, anti-aircraft and missile defense systems and command and control installations.
Due to its pneumatic loader and microwave shell priming system, the Koalitsiya-SV is capable of firing up to 16 shells per minute. The self-propelled gun’s ammunition capacity is 50-70 shells, including precision-guided munitions linked with the GLONASS system.
Uralvagonzavod engineers intend to outfit the Armata platform with a 152mm cannon to create a new heavy assault armored vehicle dubbed "the Tank Killer."
The new weapon was presented to the public during the Victory Day Parade in Moscow on May 9, 2015, along with the new main battle tanks and IFVs based on Armata Universal Combat Platform.
