The Akatsiya is also highly mobile, with a top speed of 50km/h, and can operate over a variety of different terrains.
The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video showing the Akatsiya self-propelled artillery system performing combat work during the special military operation.

The vehicle is powered by a diesel engine and can operate in a variety of weather conditions. The Akatsiya also features advanced fire control systems that allow it to target enemy positions accurately and engage them with precision.
