Looks like it's automated, though. Or at least armoured. So sniper suppression won't work.
I wonder if the cannons will be able to hit ground targets.

Of course, that system is a bit older.
And given that the overall gameplay from ZH on kind of implies that missiles are lagging behind anti missile systems, I could see someone jury rigging another gun onto the thing rather than bother with the SAM system.

It's been asked before, and the answer was 'yes'. I think it'll either be a different tier of AA or for a different general.

Description

The Sky Shield is a light-weight short range air defence system of Swiss and German origin. The central piece of a battery is the highly advanced fire control radar which can autonomously detect and track airborne targets. The moment an enemy aircraft moves into range, it will be greeted by the three 35mm guns that fire a special programmable round marketed as the 'Birdshot' for its ability to burst into a wave of shrapnel in front of the target, causing catastrophic damage to even the most heavily armoured airframes within seconds.
