Coalition artillery system Edit
The Coalition was first created as an advanced gun system for the new generation of Old Continent surface combatants. It was developed in the Slavic National Confederacy by Byzantine, Shadow and Crimson engineers, and this work later continued inside the Combined Alliance Treaty Organization (CATO). This double-barreled high-performance gun rather quickly got the attention of the Army brass, becoming the basis for the new self-propelled artillery system for the CATO.
The Coalition Naval Artillery is housed on such naval combatants as:
- 1199.0 Anchar nuclear cruiser
- Contradiction-class nuclear cruiser
- Coalition-class destroyer
Coalition-SV EditCoalition-SV is the last generation of heavy self-propelled artillery systems in posession of the CATO nations. It's development from the naval Coalition system proceeded fast enough; the chassis of the 2S19 Msta howitzer were used for the new platform.
- Weight, ton: <55
- Chassis: object 195
- Caliber, mm: 2x152
- Barrel length, calibers: <52
- Ammunition: 60 shells (<300 submunitions), autoloader
- Rate of fire, RPM: <16 (MRSI present)
- Range with baseline projectile, km: 40
- Crew: 2
- Speed max., kph (road/cross-country): 75 / 45
- Endurance, km: 500
Military experts of the CATO expressed satisfaction with the abilities of the Coalition platform. Equipping it with extended range munitions allows the system to strike targets at 80 km and beyond (data on 100+ km tests remains classified), however, the production of extended range munitions is sparse due to prohibitive cost of individual shells.
