Soviet "Shilka" continue to hunt in Syria


Self-propelled anti-aircraft installations are used in the SAR almost from the very beginning of the conflict. They are well established in the defense and in the offensive, reliably defended military columns on the march.



These machines weighing a ton of 21 are armed with four 23-mm cannons with a maximum range of 2000 m. The rate of fire is up to 1000 rounds per minute per barrel. Ammunition - 2000 shells.



Installation easily destroys jeeps with weapons, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and enemy forces. The crew of the car - 4 person, the speed of movement - 50 km / h.



Part of the combat vehicles in Syria received protection in the form of anti-cumulative screens or steel plates arranged as a corner.



At present, in the Mayadin area, the usual ZZU-23-4 is still deadly hunting for militants. However, military experts do not rule out the appearance of more secure cars there.

        However, the video does not convey the full power of fire.
        Fifteen meters from the car, during the queue, my legs gave way and an involuntary but very persistent urge to sit down was observed, excuse me for intimate details.
        Impressions for life.)))

          Old Soviet equipment after the military remained in huge numbers.

          It’s necessary to use it somehow.
          And so there are new systems Shell and Tor with modern machine guns.

            Duc, there are many of us. yes At least 72nd is a compact budget. Now it has already exceeded 200 copies, so half a wall in the corridor is covered (despite the fact that in some boxes there are two or three models). laughing And this is with a strict restriction: only tracked vehicles or semi-geese. And it’s scary to imagine the same park in the 35th, both in terms of area and money.

    Shilka is also good in urban battles. As an infantry support vehicle. Its main advantage is that the guns can be raised up 85 degrees.

    On the issue of the need for BMPT - this is essentially a modernized Shilka.
    That is, Shilki, although they were created as air defense vehicles, but became famous as a powerful means of fighting infantry, now a machine has been created that was originally sharpened as a means of combating enemy infantry
