The Derivatsia-PVO is a new-generation, Russian-originated Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun (SPAAG) system relying on a tracked, lightly armored vehicle with a fast-firing automatic gun. It has been developed by Uralvagonzavod of Nizhny Tagil, Russia to meet a military demand for a lightweight, low-level, self-propelled airspace denial system. Trials of the vehicle are expected to begin before the end of 2018.
The hull is based on the framework of the late-model BMP-3 series Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) which is proven for cross-country mobility and general road travel. The general shape of the hull is consistent with the low-profile BMP series as a whole: a near-horizontal glacis plate at the bow, flat roof line on the hull, and flat sides and rear panels. Armor protection serves up to small arms fire and artillery spray with attention given to mine absorption underneath. An unmanned, remote-controlled turret sits atop the vehicle hull with full 360-traversal as well as an undisclosed elevation span.
The driver sits are front-left in the hull with the vehicle commander to his right. The powerpack is at the rear of the hull. Six double-tired road wheels are featured to a hull side with the drive sprocket at the front and the track idler at rear. Three track-return rollers are fitted and protected by side "skirt" armor.
The vehicle is armed through a single, rapid-fire, high-angled 57mm S-60 autocannon. An independently-operated 7.62mm machine gun is installed along the right side of the turret with its own separate elevation capability. 12 x Smoke grenade dischargers provide the vehicle with a self-screening measure - all of these launchers are contained on the turret. The primary weapon is based in the towed form of the AZP S-60 single-barreled Anti-Aircraft Artillery (AAA) gun system and is proven against low-flying targets, light-armored vehicles, and other "soft" targets to be found on the battlefield. The crew has access to High-Explosive, FRAGmentation (HE-FRAG) rounds for soft targets and Armor-Piercing (AP) rounds for armored targets. Both types are said to have a guided quality for accuracy-at-range and a remote-fuse setting for precise, controlled detonation of individual rounds.
