The first 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled artillery systems of the M2 modification have been deployed with the Russian military's 631st Missile Troops and Artillery Training Centre in Saratov, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 22 January.

The 2S19M2 Msta-S artillery system differs in design from the previous version. Equipped with new automated fire control system, the modernised howitzers have an increased accurate rate of fire and can use digital electronic charts to orientate quickly in difficult terrain and geographical conditions and carry out fire tasks more effectively.

The 2S19 Msta-S is capable of delivering fire with high-explosive fragmentation projectile, rocket assisted projectile-jammers and the Krasnopol high-precision laser-guided explosive projectile.
