Description
 
Gaso.Line GAS50891M Syrian T-34/122mm Self-Propelled Howitzer (1:50 Scale) "The one thing I cannot forgive the Arabs for is that they forced our sons to kill their sons."
- Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir

In the late 1960s, Syria was unable to receive regular shipments of 2S1 self-propelled howitzers from Russia. Still requiring mobile artillery, the military therefore decided to wed obsolete T-34 tank chassis with D-30 field guns to create their own self-propelled howitzer. Essentially, the gun was mounted on the front of the vehicle, but fired over the rear. Controls, including elevation and traverse, were manual, so they were slow to operate under battlefield conditions. There was a collapsible firing platform mounted on the rear of the vehicle, which was raised when firing the gun. As a result, the crew did not have any armor protection when manning the gun. Although the gun could rotate 360 degrees, practical considerations (such as loading the weapon in conditions of extreme traverse) limited the traverse to 120 degrees from center.
