    Not to get into a pissing match but sure ZPU is 14.5mm could be wrong though.

    Your right, just googled it and its a 14.5mm not a 23mm, I reckon someone mis discribed the one where I used to work!

    And there was me thinking it was in Alex Salmond's back garden....You know, to ward of percieved air attacks on El Presidente-in-waiting from those pesky Sassenachs.

    Its actually nowhere near any training area.

    Just a quick update regarding this thing, I went back to take a look at it again seeing as its my day off, I hear someone shouting and a very angry farmer looking guy telling me to clear off and shouts at me asking what im doing etc etc, I say to him ive forms of ID in my car and im just here taking a look etc. He says there was a break in last week so his behaviour was understandable, he tells me the antiaircraft gun once he pulls it out of that wood (soon) hes taking it to the local scrappy to get the thing scrapped !

    So I say to him id be very sad if that ever happaned as its a nice piece so I offer to buy the thing from him to save it. so He has my number now and will phone me once hes ready for me to take it off his hands. Problem is Ive no idea where to put the damn thing so I am going to have to for now hire a storage container.
