  • Soviet Artillery 22 June 1941

    Running through some orbats I found for the Soviet Forces on June 22 1941. Unfortunately they are in Russian. Wondering what the difference in these unit types was as far as organization etc. (I attached the google translate version).

    артиллерийский полк "artillery regiment"

    артиллерийский полк противотанковой обороны "artillery regiment"

    гаубичный артиллерийский полк "howitzer artillery regiment"

    гаубичный артиллерийский полк большой мощности "large howitzer artillery regiment"

    корпусной артиллерийский полк "hull artillery regiment"

    легкий артиллерийский полк "cannon artillery regiment"

    I assume, and may be wrong, that hull artillery regiment means SP Arty or something similar.

    I didn't think the Red Army had SP guns in June of 1941.

    Maybe hull # is for Boat or Barge-mounted guns under army control?

        корпус is a false friend, it can mean both Corps as well the hull. башня can also mean tower, as well the turret (although that is more understandable as turret and tower share the origin).
        It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.
