I know the correct section would be historical discussion, but basically no one ever visits that section.

I'm working on a translation project for my friends, about the Soviet Project 68 cruisers. I'm trying to make sense of minor details the original passage did not explain very well.

And I encountered this glossary, "ZIF", in the "project 68 ZIF" and the "ZIF-68" AA guns. I wonder what does this mean, if anyone in the forums happen to know. I tried some search engine works without any progress.

AFAIK ZIF  were factory designation for Gun Mounting/system.

ZIF-91 were factory designation for AK-100, while AK-130 were ZIS-93

Thank you for replying!

So the "ZIF" in "Project 68 bis ZIF" simply refer to the new AA mounting deployed on the new design?

its prob refer to Gun system that not adopted by soviet navy yet, when the ship is designed

AK-726 is also refered as ZIF-67 when it being developed.

lots of wepons system have diffrent name before adopted into military service. like JSF for example, after adopted it gotten codename F-35 Lightning (military designation) or Mowag Piranha after adopted by USMC goes by name LAV-25 - latter become Stryker
