Miniart 1:35 - Soviet Artillery Crew on Maneuvere - Plastic Figure Model Kit #35081

The Soviet anti-tank gun ZiS-3, also known as the 76-mm divisional gun M1942, was constructed at the Artillery Factory No. 92 in 1940 for the needs of the Red Army suffering enormous losses at the beginning of the Second World War. The gun was developed by V.G. Grabin, a Soviet artillery designer. The ZiS-3 design was based on the  F-22USV cannon and the ZiS-2 anti-tank gun. Combining the F-22USV barrel and the ZiS-2 carriage, the ZiS-3 turned out to be far more effective compared to its prototypes. Unlike the F-22USV, the ZiS-3 was equipped with a muzzle brake which allowed to reduce recoil. Besides, its production was a lot easier and cheaper because most parts were manufactured by means of casting, and it was allowed to use materials lower in quality.

During the war, when fast production and large quantities were the highest priority, the ZiS-3 took part in combat without having been put to the tests. However, in the battlefield it proved its superiority over other anti-tank guns and later it was recognised by the authorities and obtained its official name - the divisional field gun model 1942. Due to its high combat effectiveness, the ZiS-3 had the largest share in the field gun production at wartime.
