Anti-aircraft guns made in Serbia’s arms factory Zastava Oruzje in Kragujevac, which Azerbaijan seized during the recent war in Nagorno-Karabakh from Armenian forces, have been added to Azerbaijan’s national armaments and displayed at a recently held joint military drill with Turkey.

According to the website Balkan Security Network, the video footage of the exercise includes a Soviet multi-purpose fully amphibious auxiliary armoured tracked vehicle MT-LB with Zastava manufactured 20 mm triple-barreled automatic anti-aircraft guns M-55A4.

The video shows the MT-LB had been repainted before being delivered to the units deployed in the isolated enclave of Nakhchivan, where a joint military exercise of Azerbaijan and Turkey armed forces, titled ‘The Steadfast Brotherhood-2021’, was held from 5 to 8 October,” according to the website.
