Russia developing new anti-aircraft army gun


Russia is developing a unique self-propelled anti-aircraft artillery system that will by far exceed the parameters of foreign analogues, the system’s chief designer said on Wednesday.

“We are developing a 57 mm self-propelled artillery system for our antiaircrafters,” the Burevestnik design bureau chief Georgy Zakamennykh told journalists.

Burevestnik engineers have also come up with a rapid-fire automatic cannon of the same caliber for the Russian Navy.

“It’s up to the Navy command to take it onboard, along with our remote-controlled machineguns of various caliber,” Georgy Zakamennykh added.
