The first thing I said to myself after reading how it worked, was that it probably had a range of only 100 yards.. Seems I was not too far off. I Bet they have killed more Russians with these than enemy so far. If they are so quiet why not show a comparison, or even show one shooting for the video? That's like the mythical Russian Hyper-sonic cruise missile that can reach America from Russia, only to find out that Putin is blowing smoke up everyone's rear with an existing missile that is far from cruise missile let alone a Hypersonic one with range.

I only guess that because the best way to test a system is in actual combat. Why not Syria? Deploy a few with a specialized unit or two, see how it works, and determine if you'll field more or not. The Middle East is the worlds test bed for new weapon systems. Much the same, ground units especially reconnaissance will need more technology (more shit to carry) to detect the faint sounds it gives so they can get at least get a direction (distance and direction would be nice but doesn't seem plausible) so they have an idea of the point of origin as some of their squad members get shredded from an accurate adjusting (or, sensor) round. I can't imagine grunts or recon humping a "lightweight" counter-battery in the event of an effective mortar strike. I wouldn't want to face these.

There is no reports which relate to your guessing until now.

Actually the design has been considered for awhile now by a plethora of countries, but with everyone fighting wars with their special forces, probably the first time its been considered to be useful.

P.s. thats what happens when its new news, only a couple of outlets will pick up on it. His guess has nothing to do with the factuality of the article.

Russian Commandos Are Getting "Silent" Mortars That Are As Quiet As A Suppressed Rifle

Personnel at a forward operating base are patrolling the perimeter after dark when they hear a muffled popping sound in the distance. Soon after, small shells begin raining down on them and there’s no clear indication where the attackers are shooting from. They’ve just been on the receiving end of a 2B25 “silent” 82mm mortar.

This might sound like some sort of unlockable upgrade in a video game, but it’s an actual weapon system that Russian special operations forces, commonly referred to as spetsnaz, began receiving in 2018. Jane’s was first to learn that the Kremlin had begun fielding the specialized mortars from an unnamed individual at Russia’s Army 2018 defense exposition in August 2018.

“The [Russian] Ministry of Defence is acquiring new towed and man-portable mortars for the land troops,” Jane’s source explained. “In particular, the special forces are slated for receiving several dozen 2B25 silenced mortars.”

The Burevestnik Institute, a subsidiary of Russia’s state-owned defense contractor UralVagonZavod (UVZ), has been working on the 2B25, also known as the Gull, since at least 2011. In 2015, the company announced plans to further improve the design and it’s not clear whether Russian spetsnaz have already been using earlier iterations.

My guess is they've been field testing some of these in Syria. Interesting concept for a mortar system.
