Overview

The KSP-76 (КСП-76), also known as GAZ-68 and 63-SU, is a Soviet prototype self-propelled gun developed by GAZ in 1944.

Development

The Red Army was concentrating on manufacturing self-propelled guns, such as the SU-76 / SU-76M. These were used offensively, but had one drawback - their on-road speed. A wheeled self-propelled gun with identical firepower was to enter development.

The vehicle (now known as the 63-SU) was to be lightweight, airborne, and with identical firepower to the SU-76, but with better range, speed, and fuel economy.

Development was augmented with additional engineers in October 1943, with spread focus over many aspects. In December 1943, a wooden model was completed, and the name was changed to GAZ-68.

In February of 1944, GABTU approved the project for trial production. The trial vehicle was completed by the 4th of May 1944, and was tested at the Kubinka Polygon in November 1944. Tests found that the vehicle performed excellently, and the vehicle received the KSP-76 designation.

The war was coming to an end, so production of existing SPGs was prioritized over new developments. The KSP-76 did not enter service, however its design was used after the war for vehicles such as the ASU-76 and ASU-57.
