Description

All-Terrain Towed 105mm Artillery Battery with four 105mm C mle 1935 B howitzers, four sets of gun crew, one Command Rifle team, one Observer Rifle team, one Staff team, one Motorcycle and sidecar, four Large bases, one Medium base & three Small bases.

The French artillery arm is the pinnacle of military technology. When an observer places a request for fire, the artillery battalion’s poste central du groupe, its fire direction centre,
assigns all available artillery batteries to fire the mission. This way the artillery’s resources are used in the most efficient manner.

Of more advanced design than the 75mm mle 1897, but fewer in number, was the excellent little Bourges 105mm Court mle 1935. It too had a relatively high rate of fire and was designed with a split trail that splayed the guns’ wheels outwards to provide additional protection for its crew.

The majority of these modern howitzers went to the various forms of cavalry division, although enough remained for the motorized and several other active divisions to replace their old 155mm C mle 1917 S heavy howitzers with this more mobile piece.

Miniatures are provided unpainted and may require assembly.
