Very good review, thanks!

What kits are available to put this barrel on? Only the ones mentioned in the review?

Interesting review.
Perhaps Trumpeter plans for their D-30 howitzer next year a metal barrel with muzzle-brake like this one too.
But now itīs a good replacement for the Skif-kitīs barrel.

The kits I mentioned in the review (AEF, Skif, & Maquette) are the only three I could think of (having had experience with). I'm not sure of other D-30 based howitzer kits out there...however I did run across the Semser (The Semser 122-mm truck-mounted howitzer was developed by Israel's Soltam).

And the SH3 SP 122mm Howitzer (love the digital camo)

Soeren, if they do come out with one, I'd get it. Metal barrel and muzzle would be a bonus.
