ZiS-C-53 (85 mm)
Though the designation differ between the "S" and "C", the usage of "C" does not indicate naval usage of the cannon but instead of the phonetic similarities between Cyrillic and English translations. With the letter in the weapon's designation serving as an initial after the weapon's designer A. Savin, the "S" sound phonetically similar to "C" in the Russian alphabet.
