Electromechanical Equipment ARM-28 cooperates with modern optoelectronic sights
that allow shooting with both traditional ammunition (HEI-T, APIT) and modern
sub-caliber ammunition APDS-T. Electromechanical Equipment can be integrated with
surface homing surface-to-air missile (SAM) mounted on a cannon.

Resistance to environmental factors

Storage ambient temperature -40oC to +65oC
Operating ambient temperature -30oC to +50oC
Sinusoidal vibration resistance 50 m/s2 for 5 ÷ 500 Hz
Resistance to multiple mechanical strokes 150 m/s2 for 5 ÷ 15 ms

Modernisation Scope

  • electric drives for azimuth and elevation
  • operator’s control panel and joystick
  • sensors to measure rotation and elevation position
  • sight 2C27 replaced with the electronic sight
  • electric Drive Control Unit
  • autonomous power supply

Modernization allows for  programming of forbidden zones in azimuth
and elevation,  autocannon operation modes – manual, semi-automatic and automatic, as well as for the crew number reduction from 5 to 4 operators.
