… Big Upgrade in 2019.

"As the Russian Ministry of Defense announced last week, "In 2019, the 2S42 Lotos 120mm self-propelled artillery gun and the Zavet-D artillery fire control vehicle will enter final state trials before they are accepted as the armament of the Airborne Force."

The Russian Air Force (VDV) continues to expand and modernize its artillery lineup with a spate of new fire control vehicles and self-propelled systems, scheduled to complete final testing in 2019.

Huh, I'm not sure if that's a 120mm mortar tube like the old 2S9 Nona, or a 122mm gun?

Either one is interesting. (Kinda funny that only the Russians really bothered to make Airborne mechanized infantry)
