It would be posible to have the same scheme for no-man-portable towed artillery? Your point on it would be very interesting since many sources care less about towed artillery.
I try to project these numbers from active units as opposed to what may be in storage etc.
2A18 D-30 122mm field howitzer - 120 (bn of 12 for 4 abn div = 48 plus bty of 6 for 4 abn bde = 24 plus bty of 6 for 8 spetz bde = 48)
Nona-K 120mm gun/mortar - ~30 (maybe used in place of D-30's in some Spetz bdes)
MT-12 Rapira 100mm gun - 270 (bty of 6 for 35 MR bdes plus bty of 6 for 10 arty bdes)
2A36 152mm field gun - 100-120 (5-6 bn of 18 in 18th MG div (2) and Coastal Artillery bdes)
2A65 152mm field howitzer - 160-200 (8-10 bn of 18 in Artillery bdes)
Notes - you would expect the 100mm MT-12 AT gun to be obsolete for destroying tanks but the Russian artillery keeps it as an artillery "sniper" weapon
Thank you very much. It is very interesting the use of the MT-12 as "sniper" artillery. It seems that the heavy towed artillery has not a big presence in active service today, and the newer of them where created in the 80s. One of my doubts was about the 2A33 D-20 152mm, from your comment I understand it is not active today.

Certainly the reports about the units in reserve of towed artillery are a chaos. Sometime I will try to know more exactly about it.
