I just got Trumpeter´s 1/35 2S1 Gvozdika. Can anyone help me to correctly identify all 5 options?... as no directions are included and only a few clues are provided. Here´s what I´m thinking...

1) Soviet/Russian (?)
2) Soviet (?)
3) Finnish (?)
4) Iraqi (?)
5) Soviet/Russian (?)

From Cookie Sewell's review on ML :
"Decals are neatly done and the finishing directions cover five different guns: A, B, D[I guess he means "C"], and E appear to be Soviet ones with B in “Guards” finish, but D is an Iraqi one marked for the 21st Artillery Regiment ((Battalion)), 3rd “Saladin” Armored Division, Iraqi army 1991. Note that it should have markings front and rear so half of them are missing."

In fact I think you should be right about the "C" option being for a Finnish Gvozdika. The older Skif release has a similar camo option :
