Syrian rapid-fire self-propelled guns

Syrian government forces are still experiencing a shortage of military equipment, so they are forced to create various combat vehicles themselves, including those based on trucks, writes Messenger of Mordovia.

The article notes that "from time to time this technique is getting better."

Thus, photos appeared on the Internet, which depicted wheeled self-propelled guns with high-speed small-caliber C-60 guns, heading along with the troops to Raqqa, the unofficial capital of the IG.

"As an artillery gun was chosen old, proven in many wars
57-mm anti-aircraft C-60. By the beginning of the armed conflict in the Syrian army there were
more xnumx units. At present, such guns are working on ground targets at a distance of up to 500 km, ”the publication says.

Syrian rapid-fire self-propelled guns

According to the author, “the projectile included in the ammunition flying at a speed of 1000 m / s is capable of hitting infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and medium Tanks on board. " Gun rate - up to 120 rounds / min.

    With such a grief-technique you won’t get much. Supplies to an ally should be increased at times.

        A 57-mm projectile fired from an anti-aircraft gun should flash through an infantry fighting vehicle and an armored personnel carrier.

          Only he must get first. When shooting from a truck after the first shot, the tip gets off because the base is extremely unstable.

            The Syrians have been fighting for several years, "the hand is full" and even due to the economy of ammunition, I assure you they will fall laughing

            The weight of the system is 4,8 tons + the weight of the car used as a chassis. I think specialists, not worse than us. We calculated the recoil force and the weight of the base, so, about instability - these are just your assumptions request
            Knocking down the tip on this product is very problematic request
            Moreover, targeting can be different. We open the performance characteristics of this gun and read: manual, electric, semi-automatic according to zero indicators and automatic according to the RPK-1 radio instrument complex (SON gun-guided station or anti-aircraft fire control device -PAISO) laughing
            Are you there to "shoot down" from the long lines gathered?

      Well, how would I tell you request
      Fishless fish and cancer good
      In the absence of the necessary equipment, they do what they should do. Well done. Moreover, the ratio of rate of fire and power is at the best level: at 57 mm. the caliber does from 70 to 120 rounds per minute, the range of a direct shot is 6 km., the range of a shot in height is 5 km., the angle of declination - elevation is from -2 to +87 degrees. good
      As of 2016, 31 countries are in service, probably the leadership of these countries does not consider this anti-aircraft gun a wrecking techniquegood
      I will say more - this tool, they do not consider it shameful to put our Defense Ministry on new developments good
      Look work on the Internet, information on the combat module AU220M Baikal with a 57 mm automatic gun good
      Customers lined up for this product and probably not out of lack of money. request
      As for the platform on which the anti-aircraft gun described in the article is installed - but at least on the cart, the result is important good

        I agree with you down to the point and commas. And the gun is good, and do not sleep in a hat. I think you will not mind that your words quoted in this situation are key. And yet it’s sad that having an announced, powerful, wealthy ally, you have to fight on samopalah. Normal artillery systems are not that expensive and there are enough of them in warehouses in the Russian Federation.

      tiredwithall so what's the problem? Any whim for your money! Let Belarus at least pay for it. The debt is $ 125 lyam (this is incredible at a cost of $ 150 for a 1000-year-old). Why don’t we sell Mazy and MTZ with a 40% discount , everyone strives for nae (Old Man for a dying MZKT in general developed field to demand start-potatoes probably overdid it?) Already got sickballs.

          Yes, just tired of slogans in your style. Take, create a group of like-minded people, sell something of your own or try to earn some money somewhere. And then spend your hard-earned money on whatever you want. You remind me of the face from the joke "Mommy, do you want fried fish?" if not difficult, please explain, did I understand you correctly, that the reminder that someone is trying to live at your expense is not patriotic?

            Alex, thanks for the sincerity. I do not have a very pleasant position, but the situation requires a direct response in communicating with you, which may hurt you. There is a problem in your vision of the issue - you mix together the individual budget of the individual and the state. Accordingly, you mix actions at the level of personal entrepreneurship and state (non-colonial) construction. In your reasoning, you do not take into account the semi-colonial status of the Russian Federation, the slide of Belarus and your country into a swamp of total dependence and the real pumping by the Fed system of $ 150 billion / year through the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. In Syria, it’s not just the Assad regime that is being sought out; there is a war there for the remnants of Russia's real independence. And in this situation, you should not save on art systems for those who really risk their lives and health, upholding a common cause.

              Nikolay, but you still did not understand what I spoke about. Let's start with Syria. The fact that at the moment equipment and ammunition, food and the like are being driven there, they all perfectly understand, everyone also understands what it is for .But another moment presses on our nerves - the principle "A good show is more expensive than money" is already tired of it. Why do we (not you personally) owe Belarus something? Because we are brothers forever? And if we stop supplying goodwill, we become imperials and The occupants. Specifically for you, I did not understand your position in the first post, that they have bad weapons, they need to supply more and better. To Belarus, what, has nothing to offer Syria out of kindness as a gift? It turns out, according to you, in Syria, the future of only Russia is being decided? I can assume that if Russia falls into a hole, the entire post-Soviet space will be bent altogether. For example, you don't have to go far - Ukraine, the Baltics, Maldova, how cool it has become for the population, just like in Switzerland. Another question below the belt is why Batka Does the Crimean referendum not recognize? The Yang brotherhood has long since slipped to the level of Russia owes everyone, otherwise we will go to NATO. And if we go to the household level, my city cannot find the 30th lamas for road repairs (for two lamas they stupidly milled the top layer of asphalt by 5 cm and two central streets turned into directions). So, as in the anecdote about Vasechka "I want to live in the Soviet Union"

                I am very pleased, Alexei, that you have a well-formed position and in the acute question keep emotions under control. The depth of the problems raised requires closer communication and does not fit into the framework of communication on the VO website. I am ready to give you my explanations in detail regarding my position and your argument. If this suits you, then my address is [email protected]

      I dare to ask: at the expense of whose taxpayers? For example, I do not agree to pay for someone else's jambs. Assad is a friend to us according to the situation, but for his mistakes he has to lay out his money. At our own expense, we in Syria solve our problems.

        Yes, even if 100 h / min, for hitching on a tank this is not important. It is important that he can dismantle ALL nah ...., nah ...., nah .... located on the tower and sides.

    So for the interest ----- Renault "- Russian cannon armored car during the First World War and the Civil War. Designed for the needs of the Russian Imperial Army on the basis of an imported Renault machine-gun armored car, delivered to the Russian Empire in 1915 and used to a limited extent for auxiliary purposes. Serially produced by the Putilov factory during 1917-1920 [1]. The exact number of cars released is unknown; Obviously, all 29 imported Renault armored vehicles that were not converted into Mgebrov-Renault type vehicles in 1915-1916 were converted into anti-aircraft armored vehicles.

    A very accurate cannon with a fairly powerful projectile. Almost a "sniper rifle" for 4 km. "Terminator" instead of two 30-mm should be armed with just such a weapon, there will be much more sense. However, the module with the 57-mm gun is already being adopted.

    What kind of divisions did not give out to the mountain the Syrian (and similar) conflict. Local kulibins and homemade workers tried their best to provide armed formations of various kinds with self-made gantras. The range of such homemade products is quite wide - from completely sane and practical to complete and unthinkable insanity. But they fulfill their role at the very least - they make up for the shortcoming (or even the complete absence) of light, and sometimes even heavy armored vehicles ...

    Anti-aircraft gunners have always been attracted to the defeat of ground targets. It is terrible to think what damage the bursting infantry and tanks that can take up a well-prepared position cannon anti-aircraft battery.
    Of course, the servants of these "carts" are probably not able to repel an air raid by science, they do not have combat control, their own means of detection, etc. But the Syrian war does not require this from them --- all goals on earth. All means are good if there are no others. And this means will be better than many, because it was made in the USSR.

      Invalid remark. There is no need to repair these guns, as they are in storage (conservation). And, as you deigned to note, our design bureaus are trying on the latest developments. (see comments above)
