The 1V198 is a Russian automated artillery fire control system which comprises two vehicles, the KNM 1V1003 command and observation vehicles based on the BTR-80 8×8 armored vehicle and the KShM command and staff vehicle 1V1004 based on Ural trucks.

The 1V198 provides full fire control automation for up to four artillery batteries of various types. The 1V198 system has been in service with the Russian army since 2012. The use of 1V198 artillery fire control systems significantly increases the effectiveness of artillery units on the battlefield. The system makes it possible to transform ordinary barrel artillery into a precision weapon capable of effectively destroying any type of target. It was developed under the “Kanonada” experimental design (R&D) work.

The 1V198 meets artillery control automation requirements and is used for the Msta-S and Msta-B artillery weapon systems, as well as the Tornado-G multiple rocket launch systems (MLRS) and Grad. It performs several combat missions such as shooting, anti-fire maneuvers and target identification. Additionally, it performs this consistently from two or more firing positions with an accuracy of up to 10 yards.

According to the Russian defense industry, the preparation of fire and the development of new problem-solving algorithms increase the accuracy of fire by 25-30%, and the new generation guided projectiles destroy enemy targets and objects with a probability of 0.98 to 0.99.
