The main armament comprises the 125mm two-axis stabilized smoothbore tank gun with automatic loader and the coaxial 7.62mm machine gun.

The Sprut-SD is armed with a 125mm stabilised smoothbore cannon (similar to cannons of the T-80U, T-90S MBTs, as regards ballistics and ammunition), a guided missile system and a coaxial 7.62mm machine-gun.

The organic anti-tank ammunition provides effective engagement of any modern tank, while blast-fragmentation projectiles are fired against pillboxes and manpower scattered over a large area.

An automatic ammunition loader ensures high rate of fire of 6 to 8 rounds per minute with both conventional projectiles and rounds with guided missiles.

Laser-guided missiles can be launched against targets positioned at a distance from 100 up to 5,000 meters. Due to this, Sprut-SD has an indisputable combat advantage over hostile tanks in long-distance duels. Moreover, the missiles can be effectively employed against low-flying helicopters.



Nowadays, a trend has appeared in the development of worlds armor materiel: to install powerful armament with highly effective sighting equipment on lightweight combat vehicles.

To ensure combat survivability, Sprut-SD fitted with a highly effective NBC collective protection, smoke-screen laying, and automatic fire-extinguishing systems.

It is further improved due to the low silhouette and camouflage painting, as well as high agility on the battlefield and variable clearance. All these impede observation of the vehicle by reconnaissance and sighting means.


The 2S25 self-propelled antitank gun, developed at the Volgograd Tractor Plant JSC, fully complies with this trend. It is intended for use by subunits of ground forces, airborne troops and amphibious landing parties to fight hard-skinned materiel and manpower of the enemy.

Sprut-SD can be air-lifted to a combat zone, parachuted with the crew on board the vehicle, and put into action shortly after its landing.

The vehicles power plant is a Diesel engine rated at 510 horsepower.

To provide high-speed running on a highway without damaging pavement, removable asphalt-going rubber pads can be mounted on the tracks. To negotiate deep snow, swampy and loose sand terrain, special wide tracks can be put on.

Sprut-SD can negotiate without preparation water obstacles afloat at Sea States up to 3. While afloat, it is capable of delivering gun/missile fire within a sector of 35 degrees. Upon accomplishing combat mission, the vehicle can climb on board amphibious assault ship from water, all by itself, using its own engine power.


The new gun can independently march over a distance of 500 km and be carried by military transport aircraft and amphibious ships, paradropped with the crew seated in the vehicle, negotiate water obstacles at sea state up to 3 with the delivery of gun fire when afloat within a sector of 35o and climb on amphibious ships from water under its own power during the accomplishment of a combat mission. Possessing a high power-to-weight ratio, it can operate in high mountains and various climates, while the installed rubber-clad shoes or snow-riding tracks expand the vehicle capabilities.

The main armament comprises the 125mm two-axis stabilized smoothbore tank gun with automatic loader and the coaxial 7.62mm machine gun.

The Sprut-SD Self-Propelled Anti-Tank Gun outperforms all known counterparts by a well-balanced synergy of firepower, mobility and combat survivability. Featuring capabilities of light tank, it can carry out combat missions in various climate zones, in mountainous and harsh terrain, coastal areas and shallow waters, by day and night, effectively engaging hostile armour, fortifications and manpower on the move, at station, and afloat. 04.2010 R&D, Sprut-SD project closed (Popovkin)
