The Russian military of the 291st Artillery Brigade of the Russian Armed Forces have received the Soviet-era 2S4 Tyulpan self-propelled mortars, the activists from the international OSINT community InformNapalm said.

It is noted that the 291st Artillery Brigade of the Southern Military District of the Russian Armed Forces passed through the so-called Rostov-Ukrainian and Syrian "deployments."

"The fact of resuscitation of samples of Soviet weaponry produced in the 1960-1970s testifies to the problems of the Russian defense industry and the unfavorable situation in the state as a whole," InformNapalm said.
