Hi guys,
I came across a photo a couple of years ago, but have never seen it since, of the Dshk AAA gun on the tall mount in firing position, from memory the wheels were raised up near the top of the mount?
I would like to do a Veitnamise AAA gun, but need photo refs, can anybody help, I couldn't find the pic I was looking for on google the other night.

Thanks
Mike

Well, the wheels are where they would normally be on the ground mount. It was probably a posed picture and the soldiers didn't want to remove the wheels just for some silly propaganda crew.

I believe Zvezda offers it as a kit.

Hello Henri-Paul,

That is a very lovely ornament you have in the lounge, how does your wife find dusting it?? As it looks to good to be in the man cave!!

I don't suppose you also have amongst your treasures any pictures of them in North Vietnamese use?

Thanks
Mike 😊

Vietnam :







A Duchka in the lounge would definitely be a no-no... (I'd prefer a Ma Deuce anyways )

Lol I fully understand the no toys in the lounge rule!! And yes a Ma Duece would be easier for spare parts too lol

Thanks for those pictures, I had only seen one of them before.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for looking & providing that linc, I already have a model of the gun, it is more in use pictures I am looking for from Vietnam, like the ones Henri-Paul has already posted.

Cheers
Mike
