Territory under Damascus cleaned "Shilki"

The Syrian command sent most of the ZSU-23-4 self-propelled self-propelled guns to the sweep from the terrorists of the territory of the Palestinian refugee Yarmuk camp, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

“In the battle formations of the mechanized units of the Republican Guard, the Shilka was spotted, receiving additional protection in the form of armored plates installed at an angle. Also, the combat vehicle was adapted for firing unguided rockets. Guides mounted above 23-mm automatic guns. Along with such self-propelled self-propelled guns, ordinary combat vehicles also fight with militants. Their only refinement is the dismantling of the radar, thanks to which they managed to increase the existing ammunition, ”the publication says.

As previously reported, the Syrians use the ZSU-23-4 as fire support vehicles - they cover the attackers Tanks and infantry units, with dense fire destroying at a range of up to 2 km, machine gunners, snipers, terrorists armed with various anti-tank weapons.

The author notes that the efficiency of installations during combat operations in areas with urban development especially increases. The angle of raising guns to 85 degrees allows you to fire militants on the upper floors of buildings.

According to experts, today no large-scale operation of the Syrian army is complete without Shilok.

      Can we send the terminator expensive and hulking and plan instead of one three shilka based on the T-72?

        And why do you terminator clumsy?
        He has firepower and a set of weapons 4 times more. And there is a choice between suppressants! And armor, unlike wide, is many times more serious!

    After shilka, a bulldozer is needed, raking corpses of bearded men.

      Duc, it’s easier to attach a dump to it itself (Syrians know how). It will turn out a sort of garbage harvester, housing and communal services in Syrian.laughing

        Does the BMPT elevation-tilt angle allow you to work on the upper floors from the street?

          Well, look, you couldn’t find such information quickly, on the BMP-2 the 2A42 gun could almost shoot at the zenith (a participant in Afghanistan said personally), I think that the experience of fighting the same Afghanistan and the Caucasus was taken into account when creating the BMPT. In general, you asked a very interesting question !!

          And the angle of elevation-tilt at bmpt

          EMNIP, vert. aiming 2A42 on BMPT from -5 to 45 degrees. Something like this.

            Not enough BMPT, BMP-2 and then 75 degrees. IMHO Shilka in these conditions is the best product.

    I wonder who drives the shilka? If ours, is it really that the life of a soldier in our country rose and began to establish additional protection, or is it still the Syrians?

      And who do you think can manage the Syrian shilok in Syria while clearing city blocks then.
      The life of the soldiers has not really risen in price. The main booking for Cones is bulletproof, not very strong and these screens will help. Crews are at risk

        crews take even greater risks when they run on their feet along the streets.
