Russian 152 mm Hauwitzer model 1943

Because of its modern design, the howitzer was considered the best model of the Second World War. 2,827 of these artillery pieces left Soviet weapon factories between 1943 and 1949. A ministry consisted of eight men who could fire three to four shots per minute. The range of the 50 kilogram bullets was up to 13.7 kilometers.
