Trumpeter Military Models 1/35 Soviet ML20 152mm M1937 Howitzer Standard Kit
The 152 mm howitzer-gun M1937 (ML-20) was a Soviet gun-howitzer. The gun was developed by the design bureau of Plant No. 172, headed by F. F. Petrov, as a deep upgrade of the 152-mm gun M1910/34, in turn based on the 152-mm siege gun M1910, a pre-World War I design by Schneider. It was in production from 1937 to 1946. The ML-20 saw action in World War II, mainly as a corps/army level piece of the Soviet Army. Post World War II, the ML-20 saw combat in numerous conflicts during the mid to late twentieth century.
