Response to US 105mm howitzers

My outfit (11th Marines) used the M2 105's in Vietnam in 1967/68. They of course had the double shields. The differences between them and WWII pieces were hardly noticable (optics, phone box on the trail...) I should mention however that if you intend to depict your howitzer either in or being unloaded from a DUKW, you will need to mount standard truck tires and wheels instead of the usual combat rims and omni-directional tires. 105's would not fit between the DUKW sidewalls with the wider combat rims mounted. regards, George
