Remember that the 152.4 caliber Giacint-S weapon began mass production in 1978. The authors of the gun manufacture are Georgy Efremov and Yuri Kalachnikov. They created the Hyacinth-S during the reign of Nikita Khrushchev, during an arms race, when the US already had the SAU-M107.

A few days ago, the US sent back a number of M777 Howitzers to the Ukrainian armed forces, after previously being destroyed by the Russian armed forces.

Russia's defense ministry has confirmed that it will destroy all types of weapons delivered by NATO and the US to Ukraine. He also confirmed that, even before the Ukrainian armed forces used it.
