The 2S19M2 is the third version of the Msta, which provides a rate of fire of 10 rounds per minute. The uniqueness of the Msta 2S19M2 self-propelled howitzer lies in its rate of fire, its maintainability, its ability to conduct a counter-fire strike, and its ability to unleash all types of ammunition.
The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video of the 2S19M2 Msta-S 152-mm self-propelled howitzers hitting the Kiev regime's lightly armored vehicles and an artillery battery.
After receiving the coordinates of the targets, the self-propelled howitzer unit moved into its firing positions. The crews unleashed their firepower on the targets, successfully wiping out all of them.
The strike was carried out with high-explosive fragmentation munitions at a range of more than 20 km. Fire control and target acquisition were carried out by unmanned aerial vehicles.
