  • 396th Guards Heavy Self-propelled Artillery Regiment

    What kind of SP guns did the 396th Guard Heavy Self-propelled Artillery Regiment have in late March 1945? It was subordinated 32nd Rifle Corps.

    I assume it's either ISU-152 or ISU-122; but which? Or both?

    Thanks.

    Ronn,

    According to Sharp Volume 13 it had SU-152s.

    According to BSSA, the 396th was part of the 1st Byelorussian Front Reserves on 1 March 1945 and assigned to the HQ, 5th Shock Army on 1 April 1945.

    So in all likelihood, it was "attached" to the 32 Rifle Corps and not assigned.

    BTW, on 1 April 1945 the 32 RIfle Corps had the following units (source is BSSA volume V and Operational Army List No.4):

    60 Guards Rifle Division
    295 Rifle Division
    416 Rifle Division
    410 Independent Signal Battalion
    294 Field Vehicle Repair Base
    2763 Military Postal Station

      Attached, yes, of course.

      Thanks.

      Was that uncommon, having the SU-152s so late in the war?

        Don't know. I'm not a weapons expert.

          SU-152 and ISU-152 in documents could be equal.
          Soviet docs are full of cases when types of arms are given without detailed specifications of vehicle model.
          If you fire a rifle at the past, the future will fire a cannon at you.....
