Actually thats a ZSU-57. Cool Pic. This is a ZSU-23-4.

tragedy.

Found an interesting site on the US Field Artillery at Fort Sill that has a lot of pics from different periods including Nam, and among them this one that shows a rare M108 105mm Howitzer, Self-Propelled. The picture has no captions but the vehicle markings identify it as a gun of the 3d Battalion, 6th Artillery "Centaurs" belonging to the I Field Force, Vietnam and that served at Pleiku during its Vietnam service:

C 130 taking off with 3 engines when single good one on right was knocked out.
Plane careened through our wire hitting some AT mines.
Crew survived, several Cambodian CIDG roasted in bunker.

Getting water from dried up riverbed at Cambodian border.
Thick enough to drink with a fork but wet and good after 48 dry hours.
