Mobility is provided by an all-terrain chassis BAZ-6010-027 with a wheel arrangement 8×8.

The open installation of the howitzer without additional armor protection and the turret made it possible to facilitate the ACS. With an ammunition of 30 rounds, its weight is 32 tons. This is a quarter lighter than the tracked Msta-S ACS with the same gun.
