Nudelman-Suranov NS-23 and Nudelman-Rikhter NR-23 are two related Soviet aircraft autocannons.


Nudelman-Suranov NS-23 - 23x115 mm

The NS-23 was designed in 1944. It was intended as a replacement for both the ShVAK-20, used on fighter planes, and the VYa-23, the main gun on the Il-2 ground attack plane.

The NS-23 was chambered in 23x115 mm, a new round that was derived from the 14.5x114 mm by necking it out to 23 mm to use the VYa projectile. This autocannon was mounted on the La-9 and La-11 fighter planes, the MiG-9, MiG-15 (early version), Yak-15 and Yak-17 jet fighter planes, and the Il-10 ground attack plane.
