ZIL-157K with a twin 23-mm gun spotted in Syria

35
A Syrian unit fighting in Beit Gin, in the Golan Heights area, threw into battle a ZIL-157K truck with a twin 23-mm Zu-23-2 cannon. The network has a video with the participation of this rare truck now in the Middle East, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


ZIL-157K with a twin 23-mm gun spotted in Syria


Recently, old Russian (Soviet) cars, such as ZIL-131, GAZ-66, are increasingly encountered in the conflict zone, but ZIL-157K has not been in camera lenses for a long time. Most of these old all-terrain vehicles were withdrawn from the CAA frontline units to the beginning of the civil war.

This technique was actively used in the war of 1967, 1973. ZILy could be seen in the civil war in Lebanon, and the events of the year 1982.



“In the posted report ZIL-157K is used as a classic gantrak. An automatic gun installed in the back covers the location of action films with tracer. True, it is impossible to estimate the scale of losses in the enemy’s camp, ”the author of the material Lev Romanov writes.

      "Truman" is so simple and reliable that it almost doesn’t need spare parts)))) and it shifts gasoline anyway))), but there’s nothing to say about its cross-country ability - in one word ALL-TERRAIN !!!

    The poor "marmon" and he was pulled out of somewhere ... Although, reliable, and most importantly completely "repairable", yes, in any rural blacksmith ... And yet, judging by the color of the cabin, he had not stood for a long time where there was a lot of grass , forests, and sometimes snow ....

      Putting such a machine on the move after several decades of sludge is on the verge of unscientific fiction and feat. I remember that we distilled four such machines forty years ago with a tail back to another part, after removal from storage. They were stored in the fresh air in the rain and snow for less than a year, put them in a sludge in working condition, but they drove for 15 kilometers for two days. For one day they did not manage.

        Yes, quit. Everything is real, especially since their release was discontinued in the early 90s of that century. Believe me, this is not a deadline for such a technique. Personally “revived” the T-34, after half a century of “hard conservation” and the T-62, after thirty years of “storage" ....

    A machine gun can be paired with a cannon, but a car with a cannon can be paired - this is in the realm of fantasy. There are installations - "paired", "quad". In this case, a coaxial installation of 23 mm guns is placed on the car. And if you translate "gantrack" into Russian, what is it?

          This is the SELF-NAME of the artillery mount, there are TWO 23 mm barrels, this is a “twin” mount, unlike the “quad” on “Shilka”. Do you understand?

              Is Russian not your native language for you? You don’t understand the difference between: “a vehicle with a twin gun”, that is, with a load and “a vehicle twin with a gun” ... Do you understand the difference? Understand?

      It’s that Syria should still have full “44 stormtroopers”, the Czech Republic didn’t put them there after the war ...

      THIS is a 7,62-mm company machine gun of the 1946 model (RP-46, GAU index 56-P-326) - a Soviet light machine gun created in 1946 by designers A. I. Shilin, P. P. Polyakov and A. A. Dubinin on the basis of the earlier Degtyarev machine gun (PDM).
      PDM did not "digest" the tape, but was with the disc.
