The Kharkiv Territorial Defense Brigade received an extremely unusual weapon, namely the S-60 anti-aircraft artillery system, which was developed shortly after the Second World War. Despite its age, this 57-mm system can still be useful to Ukraine’s territorial defense fighters.
In particular, this anti-aircraft gun has quite good characteristics to destroy such air targets as UAVs due to the ability to reach the enemy at a distance of 6 km and an altitude of 5 km.
These parameters are enough to destroy such typical enemy UAVs as "Orlan-10", and in terms of cost-effectiveness, this may be one of the most effective solutions. These parameters allow to confront such typical enemy UAVs as Orlan-10, and in terms of cost-effectiveness, this may be one of the most effective solutions.
Defense Express notes that such 57-mm gun can destroy light enemy armor at considerable range as well. Territorial defense fighters installed this gun on the KrAZ truck to provide more mobility. But obviously this decision has brought a negative effect on accuracy.
Also, territorial defense fighters are actively mastering more common weapons. Namely, Browning M2 machine guns, NLAW anti-tank missile systems, as well as Carl Gustaf grenade launchers.
