Title: Russian-built North Korean SU-76 Self-Propelled Artillery Piece
Description: Is examined by U.S. personnel, including a Navy Commander, after it was disabled by United Nations' forces during early fighting in the Korean War. This 1943-44 vintage vehicle had a crew of four and mounted a 76.2 millimeter gun with 62 rounds of ammunition. The hole in the angle of the bow glacis plate may have been made by the projectile that knocked it out of action. Other damage is visible just above the gun barrel. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
