Description

The 2S25 "Sprut-SD" is a rank VI Soviet light tank with a battle rating of 9.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Direct Hit".

The 2S25 "Sprut-SD" is a modern entry in the long line of Soviet amphibious tanks started by the PT-76B. It uses the lightweight chassis of the BMD-3 airborne IFV, which offers a great power-to-weight ratio, a hydropneumatic suspension, and equal mobility in both forward and reverse at the cost of extremely light protection and a rather large profile. The oddly-shaped turret packs a full-size 125 mm gun with autoloader, giving the Sprut the same firepower as the T-72B. Using this vehicle effectively can be tricky because it is significantly easier to spot and destroy than contemporary Soviet MBTs while lacking access to thermal optics for easy target acquisition, so it's important to make the most out of the high mobility to ambush enemies and retreat from danger.

The 2S25 design consists fully of special alloy with lesser armour effectiveness than RHA (rolled homogeneous armour). This means that .50 cal rounds can pass through the 40 mm plate up to 500 m away and 20 mm autocannons rounds 8MBT-70, KPZ-70 and Leopard 2k) can pass through the 40 mm plate up to 1,000 m away. Other parts of the frontal armour are sufficiently angled to deflect .50 cal rounds and 20 mm shells at any range. Due to the weak armour, the rear and the sides and should always be hidden from the enemy as .50 cal rounds and 20 mm shells can go through at any range. Any other IFV armed with an autocannon will be able to destroy the 2S25 from any angle.

The 2S25 has a total of 3 crew members which makes the survivability of the vehicle is very low as any penetrating rounds will very likely destroy it in one shot.

The thin armour of the 2S25 makes it highly susceptible to large-calibre HE shells that will be able to overpressure the 2S25 even if it lands next to it.

The Sprut-D is armed with a 2A75 125 mm smoothbore cannon, a similar cannon in performance as the T series tanks capable of firing the same munitions. It has access to the 3BM42 'Mango' dart, the same dart seen in the early T-72s and T-64s. While it lacks penetration compared to other rounds at the battle-rating (such as M900), it has very decent performance against anything it faces. It lacks punch when it comes to fighting in up-tiers as the dart might not be able to penetrate the frontal plates or mantlet of the MBTs. However, any well placed side shot should be more than enough to dispatch a target with no more than a single shot.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).


Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Fairly mobile, decent turn rate
  • Adjustable suspension allowing for clearance height adjustment
  • Good ammunition choices for its BR: 3BM42 and 9M119 are more than good enough to handle most enemies it faces
  • Access to the excellent 3OF26 HEF-T explosive round which can disable or destroy targets behind cover if the top of their turret is visible
  • Access to laser rangefinder allowing for quick long-range shots

Cons:

  • Lack of thermals for both the gunner and commander mean you cannot effectively hunt for targets at dusk or during night battles
  • Relatively slow reload rate of 7.1 seconds
  • Very thin armour, which does little to stop anything but MG fire and autocannon rounds at a distance

History

The creation of a self-propelled anti-tank gun for the needs of the airborne forces began in the USSR in the 70s. In 1985, the requirements for the future vehicle were specified - in particular, the main weapon of the vehicle was to be a 125-mm smoothbore gun, unified with the shells of the T-72 tank. Work on the creation of the Sprut (Russian for ‘big octopus’) dragged on for 20 long years, but in September 2005, the vehicle, created on the basis of the BMD-3 IFV, was put into service. After the bankruptcy of the initial manufacturer, the 2S25 project, together with the BMD-4 produced in the same place, passed to the Kurganmashzavod, where the machine was unified with the BMD-4M and under the designation 2S25M "Sprut-SDM1" exists only in the form of prototypes. In total, from 2005 to 2010, the Russian army purchased more than 30 units of the 2S25 self-propelled anti-tank gun.
