The Russian Army’s advanced Terminator combat vehicles will soon be armed with a 30mm controlled burst shells, the press office of Techmash Scientific and Production Association told TASS on Thursday.
The work on developing these munitions is at the final stage, Techmash said.
Similar Western munitions are used to hit sheltered enemy manpower and destroy missiles and small-size drones.
"In the interests of the Russian Army, work is now nearing completion for tank support combat vehicles to create a system with 30mm controlled burst shells," Techmash said, without specifying the munition’s design.
So far, the Terminator can fire 30mm shells with the ordinary contact fuze, which explodes when hitting an obstacle.
The ‘Terminator’ tank support combat vehicle is armed with two 30mm 2A42 guns with a combat load of 900 rounds. The combat vehicle is also furnished with the Ataka-T anti-tank missile system, 30mm automated grenade launchers and a large-caliber machinegun. The vehicle is designed to provide fire support for the armor in an offensive, including neutralizing enemy manpower that uses man-portable anti-tank systems.
It was officially announced in April this year that ‘Terminator’ tank support combat vehicles had been accepted for service in the Russian Army. According to TASS, a batch of 10 such combat vehicles had been delivered to the troops.
