Rostec and Russian MoD plan in 2022 to begin state tests of the latest Russian development in artillery defense — self-propelled airborne 120mm Lotus artillery.


MOSCOW, ($1=76.33 Russian Rubles) — The Russian state company Rostec and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation plan in 2022 to begin state tests of the latest Russian development in artillery defense – self-propelled airborne 120mm Lotus artillery. The information was disseminated by the state news agency TASS, based on a press release from Rostec.

Lotus self-propelled artillery is being developed for Russian special forces known as the Blue Berets. This type of weapon system is designed to destroy enemy artillery, tanks, manpower, command posts, and enemy defenses. The lotus is categorized as an air amphibious cannon, ie. can be parachuted from an airplane. In the future, the Russians will transport self-propelled artillery to the battlefield through the heavy military transport aircraft IL-76, which will be able to load and transport two Lotus artillery systems.
