"Last year test samples of modernized self-propelled antitank gun 2S25M Sprut-SDM1 were produced for government acceptance tests. R&D is ongoing to create various undercarriages for perspective self-propelled artillery gun, mobile airdropped radio and radio-technical reconnaissance complex, radio-electronic warfare station, artillery fire and air defense control vehicles," he said.

Deputy Director of Tractor Plant military hardware department Mikhail Chemeza said at the international Army-2017 forum that Sprut-SDM1 will be used to create 120mm self-propelled artillery gun Zauralets-D. A 152-mm self-propelled gun will follow on the same undercarriage.

The Sprut-SDM1 is distinguished by a 2A75M gun with combat characteristics corresponding to that of 2A46M5 tank cannon. All types of T-72 and T-90 tank projectiles can be fired. The 2A75M ammunition load has 40 projectiles with 22 of them power-driven and 18 standby. The matrix ammunition load includes 20 blast-fragmentation, 14 sub-caliber finned-spike armor-piercing and six guided antitank shells (which can be replaced by cumulative projectiles). Additional armaments include the PKTM coaxial machinegun. It is possible to mount RWS with similar machine gun on top of the combat compartment. Sprut-SDM1 also has six smoke dischargers 902V Tucha. The pointer is equipped with Sosna-U targeting complex and PDT standby sight.
