Sturm-M weapon station, mounted on newly supplied BTR-3DA armored personnel carriers, has successfully passed firing tests before the handover to Ukraine's military units.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukroboronprom (Ukraine's state-owned defense concern), the tests included accuracy check, fire control, and general performance of the station.

"For this purpose, a standard target was fired at from different distances with the ZTM-1 33 mm gun. By using a modern digital target system equipped with a laser rangefinder and a gun stabilizer, high precision and accuracy is attained in all firing modes, single and rapid. The latter allows firing 330 shots per minute or five shots in one second," Ukroboronprom says.
