Kirov factory and factory #172
  1. The plenum of the Artillery Committee decided on April 15th, 1942, to develop a technical project for a self propelled Br-2 gun on the KV-1S chassis. Based on experience in constructing SPGs in 1942 and 1943, it was discovered that it's possible to install the B-4 howitzer into a semi-enclosed SPG on the KV-1S chassis.
    Kirov factory and factory #172 made an agreement with the 16th Department of the Artillery Committee to develop this project. Both factories are working in parallel."
