Description

The OQF 25 pdr Mk I, more commonly known as the 18/25 pdr, was to see service in Europe and North Africa in the early stages of World War Two.

It used the Mk 4P 18 pdr carriage, the ā€™Pā€™ indicating the use of pneumatic tyres for motorized use. Because the 18 pdr carriage was not intended for use with the new 25lb round, a reduction was made to the charge and as a consequence the range was decreased from the desired 15,000 yards to 11,800 yards. Despite abandoning many of these guns on the beaches of Dunkirk, the 18/25 pdr served the British Army until the development of a dedicated 25 pdr carriage that allowed the 25 pdr to reach its full potential.
