76mm obr 1939 / 7.62cm FK39(r)
includes one 76mm obr 1939 gun & one Large base.
The 76mm obr 1939 was designed to replace the aging 76mm M1902/30 series. Mating a 76.2mm gun with the existing gun carriage of 107mm field gun, the gun was formally adopted by the Red Army in 1939.
The initial production run covered the bare requirements of the Red Army. However, upon the commencement of Operation Barbarossa Soviet factories were obligated to begin production once again in much greater numbers. Any examples that fell into German hands were quickly turned against their former owner and were given the designation 7.62cm FK39(r).
