notes"The 2S23 also named Nona-SVK is a Russian-made wheeled self-propelled mortar carrier. The 2S23 was first revealed at a defense exhibition in Asia in late 1990 when a complete system was displayed for the first time. According to Russian sources, the 2S23 entered service with its land forces in 1990. The 120mm 2S23 Nona-SVK battalion level self-propelled gun (SPG) is designed for use against enemy troops, armament, and military equipment. Its armor protection, cross-country mobility, and maneuverability are identical to the wheeled armored personnel carrier BTR-80. The 2S23 Nona-SVK is capable of applying aimed fire both from direct and indirect laying positions with mortar bombs and with standard artillery shells. In addition to standard artillery rounds, the gun fires all types of mortar shells designed for use by foreign-made 120mm mortars."
