In the late 1930s, development of a new 121.92 mm (4.8 inch) field gun was begun by F.F. Petrov of the Motovilikha Plant design bureau. The final design was put into production in 1939, just in time to see action during World War II. Commonly deployed as part of divisional artillery batteries, this reliable and hardy howitzer would continue to see service in the Soviet army until 1955, and can still be found in some military forces in the Middle East today.

The M-30 featured a “split trail” carriage that could be used to tow the gun behind a truck or other vehicle, then split into two heavy rails to provide a stable firing platform for the gun. Thanks to the carriage’s leaf spring suspension, the gun could be towed up to 50 kilometers per hour over paved roads or 35 kilometers per hour over dirt roads. It was commonly fielded with an eight-man crew.
  • Includes unit flag and unit card for use with the Art of Tactic WWII game.
