Obj 260: The Soviet Heavy SPGs

Greetings everyone, today I’m going to be doing this brief article to give some insight into the heavy SPGs designed to utilize the chassis of the Object 260 heavy tank, more commonly known as the IS-7. There were 4 designs mentioned to use the chassis:

  • Obj 261-1 (re-designated as Obj 261)

And I call this the history of but it’s more of a brief overview… brief may be subjective.  So without further delay, let’s get into it. Continue reading “History of the Swedish “EMIL” tank project”
