Sudanese Soldiers Fend Off RSF Attack With Autocannon Technical

This footage, provided by members of the Sudanese military, shows a recent RSF attack on Bahri, and how the soldiers defended it using a twin-barreled, anti-aircraft technical vehicle.


The Zu-23 is a 23-millimeter, twin-barreled autocannon. While the design is of Soviet vintage from the 1950s, licensed copies have been made in China, Bulgaria, Egypt and Poland. Normally, the barrels are replaced every 100 rounds due to heat, but I strongly suspect this isn't the case here.


The technical is shown defending a strategic point within Bahri, along with other vehicles and heavy guns and the typical Sudanese infantry tactic of standing around, doing nothing or taking selfies.
