The ZSU-23-4 Afghanskii is a support unit useful against Infantry and light armored vehicles in. It is a Pact unit, and is exclusive to the USSR. The unit is basically a "meat chopper". It is based off of the ZSU-23-4 Shilka, but has the radar removed and added nightvision sights.
- In-game the unit has 4,000 rounds of 23mm Armour rounds, highly effective against infantry and jeeps. The unit can provide effective suppressing fire on tanks, allowing for MBTs such as T-62s to fire on the enemy. It is a weak unit though, given it's frontal armor is 1, and everything else is 0.
- In terms of mobility the ZSU-23-4 can keep up with light to medium units having an average speed of 50km/h, allowing it to go with units such as the T55 and the SU-122-54, it also brings some extra AA firepower to this kind of formations.
- Due poor optics it's advised to bring some recon in order to have a better view of the battlefield where this vehicle is getting deployed.
- With its 20pts cost the ZSU-23-4 Afghanskii may work as cannon fodder and meatshield for other more expensive units, but that may be a secondary function, it's quad cannon make it work best as a stunner.
It was developed for the Soviet fighting in Afghanistan (Hence the name Afganskii) where it was seen that the 23mm quad was effective against Mujahadeen units in the mountains. The ammunition storage was increased from 2,000 to 4,000 rounds. The radar was ditched due to the lack of aircraft and helicopters used by the Mujahadeen, and a nightvision sight was added. This allowed for engagements during nighttime to be over all better for Soviet troops, because of the heavy rate of fire. It provided excellent suppression abilities. It earned the nickname "Sewing Machine" by the Mujahadeen.
