The 203 mm howitzer M1931 (B-4) (Russian: 203-мм гаубица обр. 1931 г. (Б-4)) was a 203 mm Soviet heavy howitzer. These guns were used with success against heavy German fortifications and in urban combat for crushing protected buildings and bunkers. This weapon was used right up until the end of the war in the Battle of Berlin where the Red Army would bring these guns up at point blank range to smash German fortifications with their heavy 203mm shells. The guns are built on tracks, but the tracks have no engine. They were usually pulled by trucks like the ZiS-22.
Ingame the gun can been found single or in a battery. Batterys of 4 guns are available. The B-4 was the maingun for the S-51 and the Su-14 Self-Propelled Howitzers.
