Kevin Berkowitz is here to present one of his latest jobs, a ZiL-157 truck with an SA-2 missile...having seen it at the Kavala model show last week, I must say I got impressed by the way Kevin has painted and weathered both the truck and the missile!!! (Comments by Thanos Mentzelopoulos)

HISTORY

The ZIL-157 is a general purpose 2.5 ton 6x6 truck, produced in post-WW2 Soviet Russia. The ZIL-157 was the standard Soviet truck until it was replaced by the Ural-375D series which became the standard Soviet truck in 1979. The People's Liberation Army also produced the CA-30, a copy of the ZIL-157.

The S-75 (Russian: С-75; NATO reporting name SA-2 Guideline) is a Soviet designed high-altitude, command guided, surface-to-air missile (SAM) system. Since its first deployment in 1957, it has become the most widely deployed and used air defense missile in history. This system first gained fame when an S-75 battery shot down a U-2 overflying the Soviet Union in 1960. Later, North Vietnamese forces used the S-75 extensively during the Vietnam War to defend Hanoi and Haiphong. It has also been locally produced in the People's Republic of China using the names HQ-1HQ-2. Other nations have produced so many local variants combining portions of the S-75 system with both indigenously developed components or third party systems, that it has become virtually impossible to find a pure S-75 system today.
