Russia’s Armata to sport new heavy mortar upgrade


Russia is modernizing its 2S12 Sani 120 mm heavy mortar for use on new generation of tanks and armored vehicles.

The upgraded mortar will be installed on the next generations of the Armata, Kurganets and other platforms, Burevestnik Design Bureau chief, Georgy Zakamennykh, told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

Russia’s Ground Forces are planning a 70 percent update of their  armor and weapons system by 2020 and a mass-scale purchase of Armata platforms, Bumerang armored personnel carriers, Kurganets armored vehicles and Taifun combat cars  is slated for next year.
