Titan-Barrikady (Russian : Титан-Баррикады) is a military-industrial company based in Volgograd, Russia. It was formed in 1914, after the merger between the Barrikady Production Association and the Titan Design Bureau. [1] It is a subsidiary of the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology. [2]



The plant was established in 1914 as the Tsaritsyn Weapons Factory, and renamed Red Barricades after the Russian Revolution. [3] It was for a time the largest munition factory in Europe. [3] Titan had its origins as the factory's design bureau. [4]

The factory was overrun and destroyed by the Germans in 1942 during Fall Blau, but resumed production in 1944. [4]

In 1975 the plant was selected to manufacture the gun and mount for the 2S7 Pion. [5]

The Titan Design Bureau was separated from the factory in 1990. [4]

203 mm howitzer M1931 (B-4) was a 203 mm (8 inch) Soviet high-power heavy howitzer. During the Second World War, it was under the command of the Stavka's strategic reserve. It was nicknamed "Stalin's sledgehammer" by German soldiers. These guns were used with success against Finnish pillboxes at the Mannerheim Line, heavy German fortifications and in urban combat for destroying protected buildings and bunkers. These guns were used until the end of the war in the Battle of Berlin, during which the Red Army used them to smash German fortifications at point blank range with their heavy 203mm shells. In the spring of 1944, a KV-1S tank chassis was used to create a self-propelled variant, the S-51. The heavy recoil from the muzzle blast threw the crew off their seats and damaged the transmission, and so it was cancelled.
