This AA vehicle has only a few known photographs. However, it did exist. The only known example was found defending Moscow in 1941.

OVERVIEW

Due to the extreme lack of information, there isn't much I can do in the way of standard procedure for writing a suggestion.

 

Comparing this photograph against various other Soviet trucks, it is likely to be a GAZ MM, GAZ AAA, or derivative.

A shot of the same crew and the same gun facing a different direction. The mount and machine guns are very defined in this shot.

This still frame from a video shows the distinct shape of the DShKs' muzzle brakes, and is, as far as I know, the only other known image of the triple DShK mount.

Open for discussion. :salute:

 

Due to the lack of information regarding this vehicle i personally got curious, after some searching (and jumping from Russian site to Russian site) it seems that the system was created by the Tula Design Bureau and most likely designated "ТКБ-149" (TKB-149) it was tested apearently in 1939-1940 before being approved and build in small numbers (30 ordered). From what i can find it was only placed on GAZ-AAA's but this is more my assumption due to the lack of only that vehicle being mentioned as well as the limited numbers built.

 

Here is also a slightly more zoomed out version of your 2nd picture, showing a bit more of the truck (to a still kinda limited amount)

Oh, this would be a fantastic addition to the game between the single DShK truck and the 72-K 25mm cannon truck!  +1.

if it's actually got a decent slewing rate, it could be the soviet low tier aa we need... 3 DShK hit hard when they hit. I guess it comes with 50 round box magazines, like the regular milk truck.

 

I like it.

Thanks so much! I'm currently overseas in a country with a particularly famous firewall (China), so my ability to research was really limited. I knew I had seen some other source detailing it in the past, but I couldn't find or access it from where I am. Probably should've waited until I returned from my travels to write this
