NORA B-52: Mega Howitzer from Serb Brothers

Serbian self-propelled howitzer NORA B-52 impresses with its powerful appearance. It is based on the Soviet 152-mm howitzer D-20. The Serbs increased the caliber of the barrel by 3 mm, and pulled it up to 8 meters. Such a weapon is capable of sending 6 projectiles over a distance of more than 40 km every minute.

    It is based on the Soviet 152-mm howitzer gun D-20. Serbs increased the caliber of the barrel by 3 mm, and "extended" it to 8 meters
    Sorry guys, but only people who are completely versed in artillery can say that. With such changes, what is left of the D-20? It was necessary to recalculate and redo everything there, especially since, as I understand it, the shells are not ours but NATO ones. So this is a new weapon. It’s good that we already have a “Coalition” on wheels, it will not be any worse, or even better

        Rather, the base was "Tsar Cannon" - a little caliber was reduced and the barrel was pulled .... wassat
        The author of the article Troll what else to look for ....
        But honestly, the Serbs are right, why use a 152mm gun when the characteristics of the 155 mm NATO cannons are ten times better (why xs, the mass of the shell and the mass of the charge are approximately equal ... the gunpowder of the wrong system?)

    And what is left of the D-20? Muzzle brake?

    a good, suitable weapon, inferior to the Coalition, but cheaper, another point is interesting: it’s time to create a more understandable interface for military programs, so that at a glance everything would be clear even to an untrained fighter
