KamAZ with 57-mm gun continues to destroy terrorists in Syria

The KAMAZ-5350 off-road vehicle of the Mustang family has become one of the best platforms for installing the 57-mm C-60 anti-aircraft gun. For the first time KamAZ with such a tool was seen in Syria about a year ago, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

The author of the publication notes that “earlier anti-aircraft guns were mainly installed on the old Urals-375, supplied by the USSR, civilian trucks Mercedes, as well as on the chassis of the former Kvadrat military air defense systems”.

But after modern KamAZ vehicles appeared in the Syrian army, it was decided to turn them into self-propelled guns. Such machines have become increasingly common in government units. This suggests that trucks from Naberezhnye Chelny quite successfully cope with their new task.

As for the 57-mm C-60 guns, according to the author, it is ideal for installation on automotive vehicles. With the help of this weapons calculations can successfully hit ground objects at a distance of nearly a kilometer of 4.

Nevertheless, most of the KamAZ-5350 vehicles supplied to Syria continue to be used as artillery towers, as well as for the transfer of military personnel and military property.

    KamAZ with a 57-mm gun continues to exterminate terrorists. A strange heading, the wild west immediately appeared, a harmonica, a perkati field and the steep Kamaz racing along the prairies and killing all the bad guys in its path)

      And probably the way it is, only without an accordion and not in the wild West, but in the Syrian desert.

    Shoots? Destroys the enemy? And nothing more is needed. Adapted to KamAZ - well done.

      I wonder how many shots KAMAZ can withstand before the chassis flies.

        lots and lots! It’s more likely to be beaten up, or the engine will exhaust the resource. You are my dear, as I understand it, have not encountered cars of the KAMAZ family.

        A lot of. KamAZ often went with a double overload in the national economy with beets from the field on chernozem along the bumper of a tractor engaged. And nothing, for a while enough. And you probably, due to illiteracy, confuse the chassis with the suspension of the car, like the one who put you a plus.

          KamAZ can be blamed for something, it is inferior to foreign cars for some indicators, but the survivability of components and assemblies cannot be trampled, that’s the thing about it. He's like a Kalashnikov assault rifle in the car industry)

            Romka probably never saw a campaign in my life, for example, these old Bedford trucks

            who drive for example through the jungle in Guyana, even where local wolves are afraid, just Romka probably do not know about Unimog

            which for decades without repairs has been climbing quietly under the control of Aborigines where any KAMAZ super-duper will go bad in a month without the possibility of repair. About a long time serial and armed with Zetros

            who arrives, pulls out any mud stuck Ural-Shyshygu-KAMAZ-Hammer-Tiger-Rys and anything
            who by the way traveled along and across Afghanistan Iraq, Syria and our mother Siberia Romka didn’t hear the campaign either?
            In general, I personally know several KAMAZ drivers who froze toes and arms until amputation because of its legendary “reliability”, but I didn’t meet the Zetros drivers with frostbite somehow. By the way, when you start angrily in response, throw firewood into the furnace of cap-shaped urapatriotism and send me thunder and lightning, I’ll answer you simply - in the winter of 2017 this is

            SIMPLE, STANDARD non-Arctic performance MERCEDES AKTROS-3 during frosts quietly rattled in Noyabrsk for 3 days, transferring frost to minus 58 degrees, waiting for the increase to minus 40 for 4 days, the car calmly continued the flight, KAMAZ in those days was not visible on the roads from the word ALL . So dear, do not mention the words ALL words LIVING, especially bearing in mind the components and assemblies of KAMAZ

                I didn’t hook it - that's nice, the main thing is NOT to give KAMAZ advantages that are nonexistent such as reliability and simplicity, like KAMAZ was a poor bucket of bolts that for 2-3 years of operation in peacetime and on asphalt roads will certainly sprinkle on all sides, so they stayed . Well, the “new” KAMAZ trucks is another story - everything is from Mersovsky Axor, from KAMAZ there is only a front beam and a plastic body kit for the cab with lights. There’s another “new” KAMAZ Tatars preparing for Paris-Dakar

                  I read your comments here, is it your joke to troll, argue, and seem smarter than everyone, or is it a real problem? maybe some complexes? not? Sorry if for a quick backlog.

                    Do not apologize for offended worse than omitted wink So no offense and complexes. About trolling - as far as I remember, trolling is a targeted pursuit of a network entity, like I only communicate with you in this thread on this particular topic.
                    Further, I did not indicate anywhere that it is smarter than others, just for what I know I write, for which I do not know I do not write. According to KAMAZ - I stopped loving him back in the 90s and 2 people PERSONALLY knew about frostbitten fingers, the first one spilled in the cold during repair on the highway on my “goodbye youth” solarium when I pumped a pear and frostbitten 2 toes that he a week later they were amputated at the Institute of Traumatology, 2 fingers on the arm and also amputated frostbitten my good friend who ran for many years on the winter roads of Yakutia - in the frost a rotten KAMAZ wheel exploded (there factory tires were set in the 80-90s so that they exploded wheels even on empty cars, then people put forward either bus tires or ZiLovskaya), while I changed 2 fingers I lost. Well, what about Mersov and Skniy-MANOV Volvo Duc, I drove more than a kilometer away to them and I know what where on what and when it breaks down and I quite manage to understand while the Merce is drying KAMAZ 2-3 times by that time

              Well, sir, they argued about nonsense, especially about Unimog, who could have fallen in Guyana and in the north above 67, unlike the same notorious shishigi, Zetros in the Urals also slipped through the swamps, which would “pull out any Ural- stuck from the mud-sand-snow” Shyshygu-KAMAZ-Hammer-Tiger-RYS "had to be pulled out by Uralaz people all this rabble ... You’re still a storyteller comrade wassat... There is no need to answer, your "uraantipatriotism" and bias are visible even from another galaxy.

                Dude, dude get a piglet am
                Follow the link to these videos
                (this is about Bedford in Guyana)
                (this is about the natives of Africa and the unimogs)
                (here's Unimog north of 67 degrees)

                (here's a Zetros simple dump truck in the mud)
                In general, according to the results of the viewing, everyone can see who wrote the truth here, and who is the liar in short pants, who is trying to put his bent nickel into an incomprehensible conversation. By the way, if you decide to drown here for UAZ, here's a peony er still a video player

                (I advise you to memorize the name Pinzgauer so that you don’t dunk your face in your shit again with undisguised pleasure, otherwise you’ll start drowning and stinking here for the Hunters and Pidriots of UAZ, and you will again be faceted in your own shit)
                After looking at the evidence of my words, I would advise you to pionEru to simply delete his post until he laughs with his "ubiquity" all the people turning into dense stupidity

        When battles go on, only the immediate application and effectiveness of the device matters, preserving the technology is the third question. Of course, it’s more competent to install on truck cranes, in place of the boom, leaving the retractable supports, then the aiming is stable, and the base car is not ruined. But time is running out, and there is no way to complete happiness ...

    With this weapon, calculations can successfully hit ground targets at a distance of almost 4 kilometers.

    It turns out that this is the most powerful tachanka in Syria.

      This is not the point there, a tank cannot always lift its trunk, for example, to the top of a mountain or the upper floor of a multi-story building, and a 30 mm BMP is not always enough, and here the gun lifts up almost 85 degrees up and it’s impossible to sit out in an unshootable zone the sniper neither the grenade launcher nor the machine gunner

    Great idea. In general, the manual for the use of the S-60 gun has a standard for firing from wheels from short stops. That is, the calculation jumps from the body of the towed Ural cannon, takes regular places and the gun opens fire without lowering to the supports. It all took 20 seconds. A 14,5 mm CPV was attached to the barrel of the gun and with its help firing was aimed. As soon as the gunner saw the BZT KPV 4,5 mm hit the target through the collimator (X14,5), he pressed the fire pedal and sent a 57mm shell to the target. And so it is necessary to fight in Syria.

      Honestly, I can’t imagine how Arabs deal with Kamaz trucks. There will be brakes alone. If you punched a pipe somewhere. then air exits the system and the machine stops. since it’s slowed down by the energy storage batteries.

      Shooting from the wheels from short stops? What for? Here was the same option
      All you had to do was add screens, put in new rangefinder sights, so upgrade the stuff by the little things, and so the thing got 3-3,5 km from the sniper nest on the roof of the 20th floor, for example, and let's break the floors
