KSM-65 coastal defense gun

KSM-65 100mm coastal defense gun

(USSR)

Notes: Design work on this towed coast defense weapon began during the closing months of WWII, but due to being viewed as a low-priority weapon, it did not enter service until 1 May 1946. The gun was useful in that it could fire ammunition used by both the army’s 100mm field artillery and the navy’s B-34 shipboard 100mm guns, as well as 100mm fixed coastal defense guns. A total of 112 were manufactured, with some being diverted to China before the Sino-Soviet split. As the gun was phased out of Soviet service in the 1960s, some were transferred to Bulgaria.

The KSM-65 was visually aimed and obsolete almost as soon as it entered service. As far as is known, none was ever used in combat.

In 2008, the unrecognized country of Abkhazia surprisingly reactivated a few KSM-65s found in storage from the USSR era. These are probably the last examples in operational use.

Weight: 9tons Rate of fire: 15rpm Max range: 8NM
