Description

The ubiquitous 25-pdr was the standard artillery piece of the Australian Army in the Pacific Theatre, as it had been in the desert. The complete lack of roads and the dense jungle terrain encountered on the Pacific islands meant that deploying these guns was extremely difficult.

One solution was to modify the gun by removing the gun shield and shortening the barrel. These were known as the 25-pdr 'Short' and were 500kg lighter than the original, able to be manhandled and air-dropped.

Contains:

  • 1 metal Short 25pdr artillery piece
  • 3 metal crew
