In Syria, "Shilka" supplemented with rocket weapons


Anti-aircraft gun ZSU-23-4 participated in a large number of military conflicts. In the Middle East, the Phantoms and Skyhawks were shot down. And in Afghanistan, it has already been used for the destruction of air targets. For these purposes, a special modification was even developed.

In Syria, Shilka began to fight almost from the very beginning of the conflict. The installation is considered obsolete, but few in which countries it is completely removed from service. Preference is given to modernization. In recent versions, it began to install rocket weapons designed to destroy air targets.

“The Syrian army also improves the ZSU at its disposal. As a rule, the emphasis is on strengthening weak body armor. But here too, rockets began to be put on Shilka. That's just, unlike the armies of other countries, the missiles are designed to destroy the ground enemy. Moreover, these munitions were created directly in Syria, although outwardly they resemble those used on the legendary BM-13 Katyusha, ”writes the author of the publication Vladlen Pershin.

It is not yet known how effective this version is, but given the fact that today it is fighting near Damascus, materials on its use may soon appear on the Internet.

    The guides for the rockets needed to be set in a block, and also at least covered with grills! And Shilka will fight for a long time, because 23mm shells are effective against ground targets, the same martyrs.

      it would be better if my eyes saw what I saw.

      Did they put the guides directly on the machines? Of course, there is little firepower, but it’s some sort of bust.

        Trunks are protected by additional screens from the corner. It turned out as if a rigid frame from the sides and top. It is on this frame that the guide rail is mounted. Unfortunately, it is not visible how additional protection with a gun mask fits.

        In addition, the question arises about the accuracy of this missile, if it is not controllable.

        this is a regular photoshop, and the installation is clearly not a shilka, but a German self-propelled anti-aircraft gun of the times of the Second World War ...

      And the length of the guides should be longer (and the guides should provide the initial twist). From such guiding shots it is possible either at point blank range (if the rocket manages to stand on a combat platoon), or towards the enemy ....

    For air purposes, perhaps "outdated", but for battle in the city .... 4-barrel gun with a terrible rate of fire! Snipers can simply be "extinguished" by a flurry of fire!

    Probably an eyelid should be "in Afghanistan it was already used to destroy ground targets"?
    "ZSU-23-4 anti-aircraft mount took part in a large number of military conflicts. In the Middle East, from it shot down "Phantoms" and "Skyhawks". And in Afghanistan, her already used to destroy air targets.

    Only Down can call Shilka obsolete. Today, in the Price-Efficiency class, it is better not to fight drones. And if you put OFZT with a radio fuse, it will generally be a song. The reservation is weak, it is a fact. But to put the Baby on the trunks, this is stupidity, and the wear of the drives increases and according to the effectiveness of hitting 23mm shells, this baby is hidden.

      all the trouble is that this beauty does not fit in shells with a caliber of 23 mm. So - just a direct hit. What he hopes to somehow not really have when shooting at such a small target as a mini-UAV

      hi Appearance of anti-aircraft missile systems in the 50s: The radar system provided automatic search, detection and destruction of air targets at altitudes of 100-1500 m. When operating in combined mode, when the range is set by a locator and the angular coordinates are an optical sight, shooting is carried out on airplanes flying at super low altitudes. If they interfere or launch missiles that are homing by radar radiation, the station turns off and the gunner carries out aiming on the sight.

        What does the PKK have to do with it? It is not used (from the word in general) when firing at ground targets. By the way, on the "Afghan" Shilka "he was generally shot, due to which they drove a larger BC.
        Probably, to say that the ballistics of shells and improvised rockets are extremely different, and you can shoot using a regular target only "somewhere in that direction", is it not worth saying?

          hi ... And what missile weapons do they mean?
          In recent versions, they began to install it missiles designed to engage air targets.

      Is it really tight with your eye? The rocket on Shilka is two times less than the one in your photo. Or the main thing was to make out the phrase "terrorist organization ...permitted in the Russian Federation?

    I dare to suggest that after a couple of shots from the barrels emitting gases, the head of the rocket will be torn off the body. Or maybe after the first shot. Unless of course she does not detonate first.

    You wanted to say about this organization that it is NOT banned in the Russian Federation, or specifically focus on the words "allowed in the Russian Federation", indirectly accusing Russia of supporting terrorism?

      Indirectly? When representatives of Fatah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas gather in Moscow to meet with the Russian Foreign Ministry and Lavrov begins his speech with the words “Dear friends”, this is not indirect, but direct support. Like JOINT fighting with Hezbollah (surprisingly, a terrorist organization is also permitted in the Russian Federation).

        You seem unfamiliar with diplomatic etiquette? When Putin calls the Americans partners, it doesn’t say at all that we are partners, and it’s not permissible for the head of state to name them
