When do we get a mini of this?

Russian craftsmen have started to make towed guns from the remains of BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles.

The Telegram group "Russia no context" showed a test of a similar trailer gun.

The invaders took a 73-mm 2A28 Grom smoothbore gun from a BMP-1 and mounted it on a wheeled base.

Guys are bored on vacation. They realize their creative abilities as best they can. The first version of the homemade cannon:

Later the cannon was installed on a machine from the Vasilek mortar.

It reminds me of the German 37mm ATG from WWII.

Imaginative anyway …

Pointless. This weapon uses the same ammunition as the SPG-9 Spear (a portable tripod weapon). The only advantage is that there is no jet blast that unmasks the position. But there will definitely be problems with aiming (this is noticeable in the video – the gunner is constantly adjusting the sight).
However, the Kalashnikov assault rifle is also the result of amateur experiments…
