Zenitnaja Ustanovka, ZU-23-2, is a soviet made short-range air defense cannon.
Here we gave this weapon a nickname "sergei" a long time ago, but nowadays the fdf model code is "ItK 95".
The fdf modernised version of sergei means computer telling where to shoot and when, FLIR, and laser distance meter.
The sound of this two barrel, 23mm cannon is awesome.
