  • High performance 152mm field artillery piece on an open topped tracked chassis. Uses the same ordnance as the towed 2A36.
  • Not to be confused with the similarly configured but much larger 203mm 2S7.
  • All four 152mm pieces will be replaced by the towed 2A65 MSTA-B or tracked SP 2S19 MSTA-S as soon as the Russians can afford it.
