Footage appeared in Syria using the KS-19 anti-aircraft gun of the 1947 model of the year

43
Sputnik published a video showing Syrian Arab Army (CAA) units serving in Latakia province. It is here that one of the key facilities of the contingent of the Russian Armed Forces deployed in Syria is located - the Khmeimim air base.




At the same time, as can be seen on the video frames, the troops of official Damascus (SAA) are conducting artillery fire from the KS-19 anti-aircraft gun. This product was adopted by the Soviet army back in 1948 (created in 1947). Initially, the 100-mm gun was intended to destroy high-flying (up to 15 km) targets moving at speeds up to 1200 km / h.

In modern conditions, it can be effectively used only for striking ground targets, as demonstrated by the presented video materials.

In total, approximately 10 thousand guns of this type were produced. Despite the wide distribution of the product, information about the defeat of air targets is not available. Currently, COP-19 remains in service mainly with a number of African countries and states experiencing pressure from the West - such as the DPRK and Cuba. The cannon is used for civilian purposes - to deal with snow avalanches and hail clouds.

    Yeah ...
    I had to somehow visit the ZNS division twice. Just such guns. In 1978 and 1980.
    In the 80th even went to the landfill bullet.
    Noble mechanism!

      The Syrians have always surprised me with their economy and relying only on themselves .. They recover weapons from metal and are very effective .. The inventors are the same!
      But they could have "vytsigani" the latest gun mounts from Russia and we would have provided them .. hi
      Well done! Russia, of course, powerfully helped the videoconferencing system, but nevertheless their fighting spirit and ingenuity is the main thing! Hang on Syria ..

    What is the difference with what weapon the projectile will fly into the trenches? From the modern or 1947 release. While the gun is working properly and has a trained gunner, this is a formidable weapon. The Syrians now have no choice

      Rate of fire and accuracy. Russia began the artillery upgrade following the results of the Syrian campaign. Lopatov will certainly better explain hi

      The difference is that this gun is bulky and inactive, and the calculation of the gun is not protected from return fire, and, above all, from fragments. But the caliber of the guns and the power of the HE shell there are not very large.

      Now they would like that


      There are about a hundred rounds of ammunition transported, and the gun is fast-firing, and the cabin is spacious, and the armor is 15 mm on all sides.

          It will completely protect against mortar fragments. Protect from counter-battery fire. And the tank chassis allows me to quickly flush if the answer arrives.

        This is a significant difference, when the country has money and it can afford to spend money on modern weapons .. And when the country has been at war for 8 years and the resources go to zero, and such a weapon will be suitable for protecting the country

        It seems to a man far from artillery. At a mortar mine, the trajectory is even more hinged, but it hits very accurately. Only here with mortars, the firing range is very small compared to howitzers of a similar caliber. Such a 105ki firing range of up to 10 km.

Could pour steel earlier. Yes, you yourself know what quality rifle trunks, carbines made in 40-50 gg. last century. Excellent quality! good

    at KhIRE in the 70s, a group of HMS was formed (in the 4th year, when there was a "narrow" specialization), practically the only one in the USSR - "buyers" from Central Asia to Moldova and Crimea. The guys, having been in practice, talked about the fight against avalanches (Pamir) and protection of vineyards from hail (Crimea, Moldova, Azerbaijan). There, in conjunction with locators. there were such anti-aircraft guns.

For firing at long-range drones, it is quite suitable in an object air defense system ...

      Nikolaevich hi As far as I remember, the Germans, in addition to the 88 mm at the end of the war, used 128 mm anti-aircraft guns. They were placed in air defense towers and guided by radar. It was necessary to defend ourselves somehow against the high-altitude bombers of the Allies.
