Advantages and operational features

On the battlefield, the Krasnopol-M2 provides:

  • transition from traditional fire against area targets (area fire) to high precision engagement of selected targets;
  • first-shot kill without registration;
  • moving target engagement;
  • day/night target engagement from open and covered positions;
  • engagement of widely spaced targets without firing data change;
  • engagement of hard targets by a salvo of several guns.

The Malakhit automated artillery fire control system (AAFCS) provides target detection and illumination (including at night), survey control of the firing position and command observation post, automated calculation and firing data input.

Components

  • a round with the K155M semi-active laser-guided projectile and a propelling charge;
  • Malakhit AAFCS.
