The new ZAK is to replace the Shilka and Tunguska artillery anti-aircraft systems developed during the Soviet era.

The complex includes a combat vehicle with a high ballistic cannon, a maintenance vehicle and a 9T260 transport and loading vehicle, which can quickly reload a combat vehicle right on the battlefield.
