The russians plan to complete state tests of their the 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV SPG already this year. This was announced by the acting chief of missile forces and artillery of the army of the aggressor country, Major General Sergey Medvedsky.

It turns out that the occupiers, judging by everything, continue to go according to the schedule - plans to complete the state test in 2023 were reported back in November 2022 at the level of the head of the Main Department of Armored and Automotive Equipment of the Ministry of Defense of the russian federation, Aleksandr Shestakov.

As noted by Medvedsky, the occupiers are currently working on the "improvement" of the undercarriage of the artillery system, and here we can hope that the russians will suddenly have some problems that could delay the start of serial production of the Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns.

It is also worth paying attention to the russian general's statement that "the Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled guns have not yet participated in the (so-called) Special Military Operation (russia’s unprovoked full-scale military invasion of Ukraine, - ed.).

As a reminder, the 2C35 "Coalition-SV" is a russian 152-mm self-propelled gun. This artillery system was first officially presented on May 9, 2015. In 2018, it was reported that plans to complete government tests of this self-propelled artillery installation in 2020.
