notes"D-20 (M1955) Russian 152mm Towed Gun-Howitzer was organic to Soviet army/front-level artillery; it remains in Russian army service. It equips either an artillery regiment (18-24 guns) or an artillery brigade (36-48 guns). The D-20 shares its carriage and recoil system with the D-74 field gun. Initial operational capacity (IOC) was reached circa the early 1950s; it was first shown at a public display in 1955. It is no longer in production. The gun is in storage in Russia and serves service with the militaries of numerous countries. It is manufactured in China as Type 66."
