The GRAU 3A26 Howitzer is the newest field artillery in the Eurusian army.
About this creation
Towed Artillery
Artillery is a vital asset in any army, and the Eurusian Army has a number of different artillery systems. Showed here is the towed artillery, which is the most standard. While the ZIL AT-90 artillery tractor is an old vehicle, the GRAU 3A26 Howitzer is the newest artillery cannon in service by the Eurusian Army.

ZIL AT-90 Artillery tractor:
An old vehicle deriving from CMP-FATs obtained by allied support in WWII, the ZIL AT-90 is still in use today. Its good cross country abilities, easy maintenance and reliability has proven a winning combination. Originally designed as an artillery tractor, the AT-90s are also used as scouting vehicles and light transport trucks. Despite its reliability, the ZIL AT-90s are getting very old, and are currently being replaced by the more modern Ural L520 ATUVs (All-Terrain Utility Vehicle).

Specification for ZIL AT-90:

  • Crew: driver

  • Weight: 7,800 kg (17,200 lb.)

  • Engine: liquid-cooled V-8 diesel (current upgraded version)

  • Top speed: 75 km/h (46, 60 mph)

  • Status: Retired, some in use by reserve forces

    The tractor's trunk is usually where the howitzer's ammunition is stored during travel.

    GRAU 3A26 Howitzer:
    The GRAU 3A26 is a modern towed howitzer used by the Eurusian Army. Its 152 mm shell packs a good punch, and used in batteries these cannons can provide awesome firepower. Batteries of 3A26s (usually 5 10 guns) are positioned along the border to the DRR and Sitiria, along the Tunguska defensive line. These Howitzers are operated by a crew of 3 (gunner, aimer and loader), but are also aided by soldiers working as scouts on the battlefield.

    Specification for GRAU 3A26 Howitzer:

    • Calibre: 152mm

    • Weight: 3,250 kg

    • Maximum rate of fire: 7-8 rounds per minute

    • Sustained rate of fire (1 hour): 75 rounds

    • Range: Normal projectile 15,4 km, Rocket assisted projectile 21,9 km

    • Status: In service

Most of us tend to forget that even the small, one man vehicles are still efficient. Cheap to manufacture, durable, and when destroyed, less casualties.

I surrender! Just stop pointing that thing at me! I was going to point out that your tractor looks like an ancient relic from WWII, but then you pointed out that it's an ancient relic from WWII. The artillery's nice, good for long range bombardments. You must have lots of LEGOs, that's the only explenation for all you're great stuff! -- -- Michael
