Yes, it's "Tashkent".

It was built in Italy for USSR before WW2, from 1939 it was in Black Sea fleet. It took part in defense of Odessa in 1941 and Sevastopol in 1941-42. Due to it's high speed and power anti-aircraft weapon "Tashkent" was used for delivery of ammunition, foods etc. to Sevastopol. It was sunk by german aviation in Novorossiysk port 02 july 1942.

To you, AMVAS.

This thread is famous for large concentration of Russian memebers.
Sometimes it looks like our western friends are seriously confused with questions asked here... :D

Ok, trying to envolve them in this joy my next question is th next.

What gun (or more exactly howitzer) is it?
RKKA had some small number of those howitzers.
It's strange, but their photos do presents in albums of German soliders from e-bay.

One such howitzer stays in Leningrad Artillery museum

What are you asking for, do you mean what type howitzer it was or where the sovjet union got theire howitzer from, if you want to know where they got theire howitzer from I think those howitzer where from England and USA.
