MOSCOW, December 24. /TASS/. Russia is developing a new antiaircraft artillery system with a 57 mm gun, Air Defense Troop Commander, Lieutenant-General Alexander Leonov said on Thursday.
"A promising antiaircraft artillery system with a 57 mm gun is under development to replace our Tunguska and Shilka complexes," Leonov said in a live broadcast of Rossiya-24 TV Channel.
