Our most successful naval artillery projects:
- 57mm A-220/ A-220M automatic guns;
- 76mm AK-176/ AK-176M automatic guns;
- 100mm A-190E/ A-190-01 automatic guns.
Our naval artillery systems surpass their foreign counterparts in many parameters. AK-176 and AK-176M guns are one of the most widely spread systems in the world. Apart from Russian Navy they were supplied to a number of foreign countries. Thus, India Navy frigates are armed with A-190E guns. Russian ships are equipped with A-190-01 artillery unit.
BUREVESTNIK also developed several Field Artillery systems:
- 120mm 2S12 mortar system (and its modified variants);
- 82mm 2B24 mortar;
- 82mm 2K32 mortar carrier on MTLB tracked chassis;
- 82mm 2B25 mortar (silent mortar).
Some of the products developed by BUREVESTNIK were included in the Russian Army artillery weapons maintenance system:
- 1I37 / 1I41 Check & Maintenance Vehicle (and its modifications);
- 1I39 Barrel-Bore Cleaning Machine;
- 2I55 Self-Propelled Loader.
BUREVESTNIK also developed several modernization programs aimed to improve the performance of the operational SP and towed systems in-service with the Russian Army and Air Assault Forces:
- 152 mm 2S19 SPH modernization program up to М2 level;
