2A45 Sprut-A and 2A45M Sprut-B (NATO classification - Squid) are the designations of a Soviet Smoothbore 125 mm anti-tank gun.
During the day the OP4M-48A direct fire sight is used, at night the 1PN53-1 night vision sight is used. For indirect fire the 2Ts33 iron sights are used, along with the PG-1m panoramic sight. The gun can reliably engage targets 2m high at a distance of 2000m
With an additional piece of equipment, laser guided projectiles like the Svir or 9M119M Refleks can be fired.
The 2A45M Sprut-B has a small auxiliary power unit (APU), which can propel the gun on relatively flat surfaces (up to 15 degrees slope) and at 14km/h on roads. This gives the gun a measure of mobility on the battle field - although it takes four combat turns to go from firing position to travelling position and three combat turns to go from travelling position to firing position.
Both models are fitted with an armour value 2 gunshield which provides cover for the gunner and loader if fired at from the front.
