Rosoboronexport Bets on Artillery for Future Sales Prospects
Representative picture.

Russia’s Rosoboronexport has sought a production and export push for artillery guns and projectiles after the country’s military identified artillery as being effective in 60% of recent conflicts in the Middle East.

“If anti-terrorist operations waged in the Middle East are any pointer, then one has to take into account that artillery has to shoulder 50-60 percent of fire missions in ground operations. Literally all operations begin and end with the enemy being engaged with artillery fire,” a Rosoboronexport statement said.

The issue came up during a meeting of the section Army Equipment of Rosoboronexport's Research Council, hosted by the Bakhirev Research Institute of Machine-Building, headquartered in Moscow.

One particular approach voiced at the meeting to achieve better performance of tube artillery and mortars in combat is deployment of the most advanced equipment. To this end, designers and manufacturers of projectiles have been recommended that they develop and launch into production new artillery and tank ammunition. In this respect, efforts should be focused on boosting range, density of hits and accuracy, let alone target impact.

The most promising are initiatives to design precision ammunition and enhanced projectiles boasting among other thing improved range. Research and production capacity of the Russian industry has everything there is to do it.
