New version of Sprut-SD self-propelled gun for Airborne Forces expected in 2015


A modernised version of the Sprut-SD self-propelled gun for the Russian Airborne Forces will be released by the end of the current year, First Vice President and co-owner of Concern Tractor Plants (CTP) Albert Bakov told TASS on Thursday.

“The Sprut-SD gun modernisation is in full swing. I’m sure we’ll be able to complete the work this year,” the CTP representative said.

Bakov said that the upgraded gun will have better protection and mobility, and its fire control system will surpass the T-90 tank system.
