    Well, since the Russians don't need to have airlift capability in mind since they don't go halfway around the world to fight wars, I doubt that that's any problem.

    Add to that shells with GLONASS guidiance (target correction) and you can easily place a lot of rounds in a very small frame in a very small amount of time.

    Can't they develope a faster method, where you designate the target area, and based on your position and the targets position a computer aims and programs the shells automatically?

    I think that airlifting is not a main problem here, and don't forget, XM2001 was too heavy (40 tons only but too heavy, get it?!) for Rumsfeld to be airlifted.

    However a big vehicle is not nececary good in any situation. This of course don't mean that Coalition-SV is a bad design, just a different solution to the same problem, and there are no perfect problem solutions as I said.

    Wrong. Russkie always referred to the nation, slavs, from Rus. Rossianyie is completely different. The word Rossyia is from the greek and was adopted as the name of the state by the russians for some reason. So Rossyia-Rossyiane is referred to the state exclusively, while russkie and earlier Rus remained the national designation.

    In modern day, Russky is a slav, Rossyianin is anyone with russian nationality.

    OK, no more posts from now.

    I always figured that a computer should be able to do everything that you do by hand today (calculations for aiming etc) automatically, aim the turret, adjust the azimut, account for movement after firing, programm the shells etc..

    And about the areal, I didn't mean a massive area bombardement, but getting as many rounds as possible to hit a certain area (say, enemy artillery position, base, depot, fortification, command post etc) without wasting shells that fly too far away because of wind etc, basically that they can correct their course to not go to waste. You don't have to hit a specific vehicle, but those that you send should do damage in the area you want them to.

    Particullary that's why I like Smerch type anti armour munitions. They hit directly what they have to hit and have no additional time for preparation/complex digital parts.

    It's just a one of the versions. For example -ros- is from a river Ros' according to another one.
    And if talk about earlier times Rus was referred to the state, and national designations were krivichi, vyatichi, meryane and etc.

    As I said before-only if you respect Yelcin's speeches. I don't see why i should agreed with uneducated people, even if there are big amount of it.

    On the other hand, if chechens would start to call themselves as rossiyne first it would be good. And kind a funny for people like me.)

    ok ok, I'll stop.

    Actually, yes, or at least possible, if anything I've heard about it was true.

The only thing is like Damian allready said is reduction of barrel overheat afaI think. Althou I am not an artillerist and it could be dilletant suppositions. Correct me if I'm wrong.
    Recoil on large guns is managed differently, and if the gun mount is sufficiently stable it doesn't interfere with the aim much. As it goes, the gun is usually mounted on a special cradle (and it's the cradle that is aimed, not the gun), on which it can freely slide back and forth, and is connected to it through the special linkages called recoil mechanism. When the shot is fired, the gun slides back in the cradle, while the recoil mechanism absorbs and dissipates this energy, while some of it can be used to drive the breech mechanism or the loader. If the gun is properly balanced, then there's usually almost no recoil energy left in the end of a slide, so the aim is undisturbed. Or, if the charge is too powerful, then the gun strikes the cradle, but as it's anchored to the earth or to the ship's hull, the energy gets transferred to a much more stable and massive platform, and the disruption is minimal. Then the recoil mechanism slides the gun forward into the firing position, breech is closed and the new shot is fired.

    I did not said that, you missunderstood. Russkie comes from Rus, called by russians. Rossyia is the same word as Rus, but taken from the greek to designate the state exclusively.

    Krivichi, or whatever were just tribes, but national differences? No! and all the habitants of Rus were known as "Russian people" collectively (Russky narod, Russi or Russkie).

    As I said before-only if you respect Yelcin's speeches. I don't see why i
    should agreed with uneducated people, even if there are big amount of it.

    As of Chechens, if you ask who they are, they are chechens, if they have russian nationality, they are Rossyiane, it is a political term. Russkie applies to slavs only. Funnier would be to call them like that, complete nosense. The same would be to call them "french"

    Russkie is historical, Rossyiane was made up and did not exist until Muscovy.
