Modules and improvements

History of creation and combat usage

Development

The Soviet’s primary autocannon anti-aircraft weapon for low flying aircraft was the 37 mm air defence gun M1939, also known as the 61-K. It was based of the Bofors 25 mm M1933 model, with the 61-K developed in 1938 to fire 37 mm shells. The weapon was effective enough that performance trials with the Bofors 40 mm L/56 autocannon was deemed equal. The Soviet produced more than 20,000 of this weapon for land use, mostly in single barrel mounts in fixed positions, mounted on trucks, or on dedicated anti-aircraft vehicles. A further 3,000 units were made for naval use, this was designated as the 70-K. A variation was also built for a twin-barrel system, the 65-K.

The 37 mm auto-cannon was widely exported and licensed out by the Soviet Union to its allies for use. Poland, China, and North Korea received licenses to produce the 37 mm 61-K model. However, China also received the dual-barrel 65-K twin-barrel variant, which it also manufactured. Their use on the weapon expanded from there, with the development of a dual-barrel Type 63 variant with vertical stabilization that was mounted on vehicles. The Chinese added this gun onto the Type 58 tank, a copy of the T-34-85, by replacing the turret with an open-top one able to hold the Type 63 anti-aircraft gun. This vehicle was known as the Type 63 self-propelled anti-aircraft. Though mounted, the 37 mm still proved unable to cope with the new jet planes as the weapon had a manual elevation, plus was loaded in five-round clips per barrel that reduced rate of fire for fast moving targets. Thus, the weapon soon found a life as a ground-support vehicle, akin to the American’s M42 Duster.

A separate project was done when the Chinese improved on the Type 63 twin-barrel gun with a more modern 37 mm Type 65 design that had double the overall fire rate compared to the Type 63 gun. This too was also added into the same type of mount on the Type 63 SPAAG, with the vehicle designated as the Type 65 SPAAG. However, the overall vehicle format with its open-top configuration and inability to fight contemporary aircraft meant that the project would not be useful in the long run and so the Type 65 SPAAG was discontinued before it saw production.

Combat usage

While the Type 65 did not see any mass usage, the Type 63 vehicle was exported out to the North Vietnamese in the 1960s in the height of the Vietnam War, though numbers were limited in the overall fighting. They were most noted in their action in the NVA’s Easter Offensive in 1972, when one of the vehicle was captured by the ARVN. After the country was unified as one, the Type 63 SPAA still saw service until the 1980s.
