Miniart 1:35 - USV-BR 76mm Gun Mod.1941 with Limber and Crew - Plastic model kit #35129

The USV was a Soviet 76 mm cannon issued in 1939 for the demands of the Red Army. The gun was classified as "divisional" because it was specifically meant for batteries under the direct command of division headquarters. Based on the previous F-22 design, the USV gun was also called the F-22 USV.

By 1940 over a thousand units were ready, and in 1941 when the plan for divisional guns was fulfilled, the production stopped, however not for long. With the German invasion of the Soviet Union the production was reopened at the Barrikady factory in Stalingrad and No. 92 Plant in Nizhny Novgorod. The relaunched model was designated the USV-BR. It was widely deployed in 1941, the first year of the Great Patriotic War. Over eight thousand units were built in the following two years, but by the end of 1942 the USV-BR was completely replaced by the simpler and cheaper ZiS-3.
