The 152mm obr 1943 Howitzer was developed as a hybrid using the carriage of the 122 mm obr 1938 howitzer and a barrel of the 152mm obr 1938. This adaptation significantly increased the firepower and breakthrough abilities of Red Army shock units just in time for Operation Bagration.

In Flames Of War
When the regiment’s guns are not enough to remove the fascist pests, your corps will lend its heavy guns to help purge Mother Russia of the Nazi plague!
Heavy artillery battalions armed with 122mm and 152mm heavy howitzer guns pound the enemy even harder than the guns of the normal Shock Artillery Battalion, smashing huge holes in the fascist defenses.
The 122mm obr 1938 howitzer has Anti-tank 7 and Firepower 2+ when firing over open sights, and Anti-tank 4, Firepower 3+ in bombardment. For a few more points, you can upgrade the 122mm guns with 152mm obr 1943 howitzers which have Anti-tank 10, Firepower 1+ in direct fire, and Anti-tank 5, Firepower 2+ in bombardment.
