The A-222E Bereg-E mobile coastal artillery system is intended to destroy and suppress enemy`s sea and coast-based assets and to provide protection against attacks of surface combatants. The system can effectively engage sea and ground targets moving at high speeds. Bereg-E is comprised of a central post with a fire control system, six self-propelled guns, and one or two combat duty support vehicles. The central post is intended for controlling of battery firing. The fire control system features a radar, a TV/optical station with a laser rangefinder, sights, a digital computer, and other electronical subsystems. It can operate even in an electronic countermeasures environment. The self-propelled guns are equipped with optical/mechanical sights, ballistic computers, and laser rangefinders. They can deliver fire by remote commands from the central post or in the self-contained mode, using the aforementioned pieces of equipment. The guns are loaded semi-automatically with complete rounds. They can fire high-explosive and anti-aircraft projectiles. The combat support vehicles provide power supply and rooms for the crews` rest, messing, and medical treatment. The components of Bereg-E are mounted on MAZ-543M 8x8 wheeled all-terrain trucks.
