The new wheeled 2S35-1 is based on the KAMAZ-6560 heavy truck chassis and incorporates unmanned combat turret and same armament as the standard 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV SPG. The turret including the 152mm cannon which has a traverse of 360° is mounted at the rear of the truck chassis.

In firing position, two hydraulic jacks are lowered to the ground, on each side of the truck chassis to provide a more stable firing platform.

The 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV tracked self-propelled howitzer is armed with the new 2A88 cannon 152mm which is under development.

The 2S35 can fire a wide range of munitions, including standard and rocket-assisted HE-FRAG projectiles, cluster projectiles with anti-tank sub-munitions, jammer carrying projectiles. It has a maximum firing range of 30 km with standard ammunitions and around 40 km with rocket-assisted projectile.

The 2S35 has also a fully automated ammunition loading and handling system with 8 rounds per minute rate of fire. The S2S35 is able to fire a new generation of 9K25, the 152 mm Krasnopol laser-guided projectile which has a maximum range of 20 km.
