The ML-20 was developed to replace the M.1910/30. The M.1910/30 was an up-dated version of the old M.1910 howitzer and was considered obsolete for use in modern warfare. The M.1910/30 still had problems with mobility, elevation and traverse and these faults were to be fixed with the development of the new ML-20. The new weapon was classed as a gun/howitzer and recognised as being one of the best Soviet artillery pieces of the Second World War. It was issued at army level and served in heavy regiments.
