The Soviets (like many other European nations) classified their guns by their use. In the case of the 76mm obr 1927 gun, it was used in the fire support role at regimental level, hence it was known as a regimental gun. In fact it was really a light howitzer serving a similar role to the German 7.5cm leIG.

As hinted at by its designation it was put into production in 1927 at the Krasniy Putilovets factory. It proved a popular and useful small support weapon, being used both in the direct fire and indirect fire roles.

The obr 1927 was quite functional; it ranged out to around 8500 meters with a quite capable 13.7lb shell. By 1941 there were 4708 of these guns in service with the Red Army.

In Flames Of War

Like its German counterpart it makes an excellent light support weapon, packing enough punch to knock out the most stubbornly dug-in enemy teams with a 3+ firepower. It even has some capability as an anti-tank weapon (Anti-tank rating of 5), but its short range (16”/40cm in direct fire, 64"/160cm when firing artillery bombardment) makes this a last resort option.

It ROF 2 is also handy, combined with a full-strength unit size of 4 guns it means a lot of destruction can be laid down on a target.
