With nearly 20,000 guns produced from 1939 to the mid 1950’s, the M-30 122mm howitzer saw extensive service in World War II and many post-war conflicts as well, particularly in the Middle East. While its range is relatively short, its high caliber and good rate of fire allow saturation of targets. Egypt and Syria acquired many examples of this type, and several hundred remain in service today.
The Soviet Union re-introduced corps level artillery in 1942, with the D-1 152mm gun as a more mobile heavy artillery piece. Though the range is a relatively short 12km, a trained crew
can fire four 40kg high explosive rounds per minute, providing a devastating bombardment. It was widely exported in the post-war years, with many being acquired by Egypt and Syria and used in
the 1967 and 1973 wars.
