A new video showing Russian operations against terrorists in Syria. The video shows how Russian UAVs paint targets for artillery strikes with 12mm Krasnopol laser-guided artillery rounds.

Several Russian and Soviet-made 152mm artillery guns can launch the advanced shell, which is guided by semi-active laser. Krasnopol has a range of 20km and can hit its targets with a pin-point accuracy.

According to the available information, Russian forces in Syria are employing the Krasnopol with the 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzer. This type of howitzers was seen in the Homs desert in late 2017.

Like any other laser-guided weapon, the Krasnopol’s target should be illuminated with laser. The Malakhit portable automated artillery fire control system, which was developed by the KBP Instrument Design Bureau, is usually used to illuminate targets. However, experts believe that Russia has several types of drones, which are capable of illumining targets for the Krasnopol.

Russian forces used the Krasnopol to eliminated a group of militants, which conducted the drone attack on Hmeimim airbase on December 31, 2017. The guided shell was able to hit its targets with great accuracy.
