Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

TSNIITOCHMASH developed the artillery gun, named Lotos, for the country’s airborne force.

It was created and mounted on the BMD-4M airborne infantry fighting vehicle’s chassis.

During trials, the artillery piece confirmed its compliance with the specified tactical operational characteristics.

It will now be prepared to undergo preliminary trials.

Rostec State Corporation industrial director Bekkhan Ozdoev said: “The airborne amphibious gun Lotos showed itself perfectly during the completed acceptance tests.

“The combat vehicle fully meets the requirements for weight and size characteristics and at the same time has an impressive speed, rate of fire and range of fire.

“We expect that the next stage, preliminary tests, will begin this year.”

The tests are said to have helped analyse the operability of the assemblies, mechanisms and devices of the gun.

The system is reported to have covered 400km and conducted 14 shots.

Documentation to confirm the compliance of the gun prototype with the working design documentation was signed by Russian Defense Ministry representatives at TSNIITOCHMASH.

The Lotos artillery system has a weight of 18t and features a 450hp engine. It has a 500km operating range.
