Shaitan-tachanka PD-76

The PD-76 mobile long-term firing point was developed in the autumn of 1943 by OKB-43 as a mobile means of deterring enemy armored vehicles. As weapons, a 76-mm F-34 gun was used, the ammunition was 44 rounds. The unit was transported behind a truck, 4 people put it in a combat position in 25 minutes. In the spring of 1944, plant No. 371 (now LMZ) produced an experimental batch of PD-76, the price of one installation was 104 thousand rubles. According to the test results, it was decided to stop work, since the power of the F-34 system was already insufficient to fight the new German tanks.

    In the spring of 1944, plant No. 371 (now LMZ) produced an experimental batch of PD-76, the price of one installation was 104 thousand rubles. According to the results of the tests, it was decided to stop work, since the capacity of the F-34 system was already insufficient to deal with new German tanks.

    It is understandable, by this time self-propelled guns began to arrive in large numbers in the troops, which were much more mobile and efficient. And their caliber was from 76 to 152 mm.
    In the years 60-70 in the Far East, to strengthen the protection of the border and islands, tanks (without engines) with 100 and 122 mm guns, as well as self-propelled calibers of 100, 122 and 152 mm, were used as long-term firing points. These self-propelled guns and tanks were released at the end of the war or in the postwar years.

      And to whom should we say thanks?

      "The tank loved the self-propelled gun, took her for a walk in the woods ..."

      To our grandfathers!

    Something similar, only with machine-gun weapons, was proposed by Pavel Ignatievich Grokhovsky for landing from an airplane.

    It was at the same time that the Germans appeared something similar, though armed with a machine gun, but such an idea was similar, a quickly established firing point, as they say - flew in the air ... for a long time ..

    But the "Crab" sample 1943

    And its view, front and back, is already a trophy

    He took part in the dismantling of the IS-3 tanks in 2000-2002 along the banks of the Ussuri River! It was a pity to cut the guns to tears!

      Of course not. Just a support foot. And the engine is inside. With a power of one human force, twists the handle and through the gearbox it all rotates ... request

    The author of the article is Yura Pasholok.
    its TsAMO copyrights cannot be confused.
    Well, is it so hard to give a link to the original and the author?

    an original idea for that time, it can be seen that it did not develop further, because for the first time I hear about such a "miracle car"

    A funny thing, as in the joke - "There won't be enough money for a car, but I'll buy myself a door."

    Funny design. If the self-propelled guns had not been massively commissioned, perhaps another fate would have awaited her.

    Recently, they went with the union to the water park in Molodechno, near the city there is a brigade of engineering troops, so reinforced concrete bunkers are stored there, there is a huge warehouse in several rows, only to dig in and install weapons, so the idea didn’t disappear in the tuna.

      There were and are quick-install modules. This is not a revelation.

    In the factory near Grabin, in the year 41, they released 800 107 mm F-42 for the KV-3 and KV-4 tanks and remelted it in open-hearth because of the lack of production of these tanks. Here on such an installation would be just.

      There were no armor-piercing shells of this caliber. And there was almost no PF. Shrapnel was abundant. And the ZIS-6 guns were released only 5 (five) pcs. And 800 trunks would be put on other carriages (from 122 mm, for example) and the production of all types of shells was arranged.

    It is strange that in our time they forgot about such an idea.
    LEVEL OF ROBOTICS and informatization, allows you to create a combat system-drone, which you only need to deliver to the location and deploy. and everything else in automatic mode and the launch of rockets and artillery fire with it without human intervention.
    SEPARATE ELEMENTS ARE ALREADY IMPLEMENTED IN TANKS AND IFVs and drones, this must be put together in a heap.
    such a system will go with a bang, where it is necessary to cover an extended border or in the direction of a possible breakthrough of the enemy.

    In the spring of the 44th they were no longer needed - we were advancing. it is bad that they were not in the 41st, when Hitler went forward.

      Could be useful on the flanks, but with such a caliber, at that time, it was no longer relevant. Cheaper and simpler is a battery of field guns to cover minefields. 85 and 100 mm have not yet been properly implemented for tanks and self-propelled guns.

HIM AND GLORY !!!! DO NOT TRANSFER FROM EMPTY TO EMPTY !!! They tried! Thanks to them - WE ALL ARE !!!!!! Right, wrong, wrong, BUT !!!!! THEY WENT TO VICTORY !!!!! COMPARE WHAT WE HAVE ????? In my opinion, the result is clear and unambiguous .....
