The Bereg 130-mm self-propelled coastal defense gun was developed in the late 80s. It is also referred as the A-222. The main mission of this artillery system is to engage surface ships and prevent over-the-beach landings of enemy forces. It can also engage small-size fast moving naval targets, such as small landing ships, fast attack craft and air-cushioned vessels at a range of up to 20 km. It can also engage ground targets. The Bereg was developed as a supplement to mobile costal defense missile systems, as all missile systems have a dead zone from 7 to 25 km and are unable to defend costal zones alone. Another advantage comparing with missiles is cost per fired projectile. The Bereg was first publicly revealed in 1993. A small number of these artillery system is currently in service with Russia. First systems were delivered in 2003. It was also proposed for export customers, however received no production orders.
