Russia is developing a new 57 caliber anti-aircraft weapon system to replace two existing systems, the commander of the Russian Land Force’s air defense said.

"A promising new anti-aircraft artillery system with a caliber of 57 mm is being developed to replace ‘Tunguska’ and ‘Shilka’ systems," Lt. Gen. Alexander Leonov told reporters late Thursday.

The ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" is an all-weather lightly armored self-propelled and radar guided anti-aircraft weapon system that has been in service since 1962.

The tracked 2K22 "Tunguska" self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon armed with a surface-to-air gun and missile system began serial production in 1964 and entered into service in 1982.

Russia is undergoing a $ 325-billion rearmament program to modernize 70 percent of its equipment by 2020.
