37mm automatic air defense gun M1939 (61-K) is a Soviet anti-aircraft gun.

Description

Developed from the Swedish Bofors 25mm gun, the M1939 (61-K) is a Soviet automatic anti-aircraft gun mounted on a four-wheeled ZU-7 carriage. It was used in great numbers against low flying enemy aircraft throughout the war. For greater mobility, the gun was also mounted on trucks like the ZIS-6

The M1939 (61-K) is the standard anti-aircraft gun for Soviet Union in Battlegroup42. The gun is fed with five round clips. In desperate situations it can also be used against lightly armoured ground vehicles for self-defence.
