HISTORICAL  INFORMATION


During WWII  more  than  2000  ZPU  (meaning  "anti-aircraft  machine  gun  mount")  were  in  service  of  Red  Army.  One  of  them  was  triaxial  GAZ-AAA  truck  with  mounted  quad  M4  Maxim  machine  gun.

The  first  dedicated  Soviet  mount  for  anti-aircraft  machine  guns  was  developed  around  1928  by  Tokarev  and  was  adopted  for  service  in  1931.  It  was  a  base  for  mounting  up  to  four  7.62  mm  PM  M1910  (Russian  Maxim)  guns. This  was  also  called  a  ZPU,  although  the  name  -4  was  also  assigned  to  it.

M-4 Maxim machine gun has the device of compulsory water circulation and bigger capacity of machine-gun tapes 1000 cartridges, instead of usual 250.

Using antiaircraft ring sights, M-4 was effective in fire on low-flying planes (at the height up to 1400 m at a speed up to 500 km/h). M-4 was also often used for infantry support.

M-4 served the Soviet armed forces in all major conflicts until 1945.
