So it's an AT weapon? I've read some where that it was also used as an artillery weapon, but that's probably not true...

It was used as AT or Arty. But it was very bad in AT role compared to the 57mm ZIS-2 Model 1943 L/72.9. So it was mostly used as Arty.

The 76mm ZIS-3 Divisional Gun mod.1942 had 3 TIMES worse armor penetration values than the other 76mm At guns like the US 76mm 3 Inch M5 L/50, the German 75mm PaK 40 L/48 or the British 76mm Q.F. 17 Pounder Mk.IV L/55.

Im pretty sure that this gun was also mounted onto the Russian equivalent of the British Bren Carrier >>. Not completely sure though >>> But I'm pretty sure there was also a mounted version of this gun or perhaps a more powerfull model !!

It was not very bad, the 57mm was superior in destroying tanks, but the 76mm was decent at killing Panzer IV's and III's. It was the Tigers and Panthers it had not chance at.

I believe the zis-2 is the anti-tank gun, the zis-3 had more of an artillery role

edit: beaten to it

The 76mm Divisional Gun M1942, or ZiS-3 as it was better known, came about during the initial stages of the Soviet campaign to fill the need for a medium caliber gun that could destroy the German armor at the time. The design was relatively simple with a 76.2mm gun mounted on the carriage from the older ZiS-2. Combat experience showed that the ZiS-3 was largely superior to other Soviet AT weapons, and the gun's extreme reliability and accuracy meant that it was well liked by both the enlisted men and the top brass. In all, from 1941 to the end of the war, production of the gun reached well over 103,000. The 76mm Divisional Gun M1942 (ZiS-3) was made by Kraetzer, with help from Toddel on the wheels.
