The 2K22 “Tunguska” (UNDF Reporting Name: SA-19 ​​Grison) was a Soviet self-propelled anti-aircraft cannon and missile system, developed by Tula Instrument Design Bureau. By the beginning of the 1970s, the ZSU-23-4 Shilka’s lack of effectiveness had become apparent. The Shilka’s 23mm round lacked effective range and poor crew armor protection prompted the design of a new, more Western style anti-aircraft system. The resulting 2K22, with its 30mm cannons and battery of eight surface to air missiles, remained in service with the Soviet Union and her client states until the Invid Invasion. The 2K22 was eventually replaced in front line service by the more sophisticated Carapace-C1.
