On the Lebanese-Syrian border, a “hellish thresher” is spotted

58
In the video report RT Arabic from the Lebanese-Syrian border area, an 57-mm anti-aircraft self-propelled unit ZSU-57-2 was noticed, nicknamed "hell thresher", writes Messenger of Mordovia.




The combat vehicle belongs to the forces fighting against the IG grouping (banned in the Russian Federation).

This artillery mount on a medium chassis tank T-54 has proven itself in work on ground targets. “Therefore, it is not surprising that she was attracted as a deterrent at the time of the evacuation of the militants. It is unlikely that any of them at the sight of such a formidable car had thoughts about any provocations, ”the author of the material Roman Katkov notes.

Despite the venerable age (the year of adoption - 1950), the self-propelled gun is still in service and, apparently, in excellent shape.

Weight ZSU-57-2 - 28 tons, armed with two 57-mm automatic guns C-68, the rate of which reaches 120 rounds per minute (per barrel). Able to hit ground targets at a distance of 4 km, the calculation - 6 people.

The engine power of the installation is 520 hp, the maximum speed on the highway is 50 km / h, the power reserve is 400 km.

      You know here you can continue the thought. In the direction that Soviet designers very well absorbed and used the "captured German heritage" ...

          this, too, must be able to, colleagues, over there, the Chinese mostly (!) have rough copies of crafts, while ours, taking the basis, have surpassed
          well, and, as it may seem from your words, our military production began after the Second World War, which is far from the case hi

            Yes!
            You might think that Russian / Soviet design thought has always been "second number".
            In 34-ke was running from Christie and nothing more. In the no less legendary KV-1 is already "homegrown" torsion bar.
            The Germans from 34 matches licked the body of their "Panther".
            Always and everywhere there was a borrowing of other people's engineering solutions. If you delve into, then many products turned out to be initially of a different "origin". They simply did not make out / were not interested / the inventor did not finalize.

In fact, here’s BMPT for you .. Cheap and cheerful ..

      Israeli kill in other regions!
      According to publication “Europe et Afrique, cibles des industries israeliennes de defense” in the French bulletin “Intelligence online”Michel Ben-Baruch, head of the Israeli arms export agency Sibat, announced on March 29, 2017 that Israeli arms exports grew by 2016% in 12 and reached $ 6,5 billion (in terms of the volume of contracts concluded).
      The defense industry of Israel owes its good form last year to two main areas. On the one hand, Israeli companies were very active in Africa, especially in Nigeria. On the other hand, a wave of terrorist attacks in Europe by Islamists, primarily “sleeping loners”, made exporting technologies against such threats developed by Israeli companies in recent years very attractive.

      The Israeli Ministry of Defense recently announced that it has issued export licenses for arms supplies to 160 countries, including 10 states in the Arab world..

    The main thing is that it does not have much that is unnecessary and breaking, that makes it almost useless as a means of air defense, but very much in demand as a ground installation

      Yes, probably ZSU57x2 has already served its purpose and there is simply no point in upgrading them; you need to do something new.
      Although in Iran such hybrids are made from ZSU57x2 towers and KRAZ

    ZU-57-2, it’s more correct. Like all anti-aircraft guns, it perfectly copes with ground targets. And about the "copied", well, of course, yes. All of World War II, there was a struggle between Jews and Hitler, thank God, the Yankees saved everyone, thanks to them they are alive and progressing What can you do, the brains have flowed away, everything is in Israel, here we are copying, from the best ones, they cannot beat off with bubbles (empty), if sho.

    Tupolev himself wanted to develop a new car from scratch, but the Supreme ordered to copy a successful solution and only then bring it up. The decision was correct. As with German missiles and Korolev.
