    Chief of missile and artillery troops Maj. Gen. Mikhail Matveevsky said that Russian Land Force's artillery brigades will begin receiving state-of-the-art Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns in the near future.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Russian Land Force's artillery brigades will begin receiving state-of-the-art Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns in the near future, chief of missile and artillery troops Maj. Gen. Mikhail Matveevsky said Friday.

    "The planned purchase and supply of these complexes into the artillery brigades will begin in the near future," Matveevsky said.

    Koalitsiya-SV was first unveiled at the Victory Day parade on May 9, 2015, in Red Square, Moscow.

    Matveevsky underscored the automated weapon's innovative multi-round simultaneous impact firing capabilities, delivering several volleys at various trajectories to engage a target at the same time.

    "The combat capabilities of the complex are double that of all existing domestic and foreign models," he stressed.

    Russia's state-of-the-art Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns will serve as the blueprint for robotized artillery systems in the future, chief of the Land Force's missile and artillery troops Maj. Gen. Mikhail Matveevsky said.

    "We can speak about creating fully robotic artillery systems that perform tasks without human intervention in the future," Matveevsky said.

    Koalitsiya-SV was first unveiled at the Victory Day parade on May 9, 2015, in Red Square, Moscow.

    "Robotization is one of the armed forces' priority areas. The development of the Koalitsiya-SV artillery complex is already being finalized. This model is the first step toward the robotization of artillery systems," Matveevsky stressed.

    He highlighted the self-propelled gun's unmanned combat compartment and its automated guiding and armament loading capabilities.
