A compromise was made to simplify the K.”17 by dropping the complex sighting system with a system basically the same as that in use with the 15cm s.F.H. $58.95. It also benefited greatly from the development of high explosives and chemical munitions, to multiply its bursting radius. Angle of sight is the additional elevation or depression of the barrel to compensate for a difference of how high or low the gun is relative to the target. German Anti-tank Gun In Field. Huge collection, amazing choice, 100+ million high quality, affordable RF and RM images. Mobility tests conducted in the Sudeten  Mountains went well for both pieces. The 150 mm SFH18 howitzer was widely deployed by … The Control Station (FDC) received these spottings and corrected for meteorological conditions as well as calculating data such as quadrant and defection for the battery. 5  Krupp built six of these 10cm weapons for mobility test in 1904 and was so successful that it was put into production the following year under the designation 10cm Kanone 1904. By using many of the components of the K.”14, lengthening the barrel and simplifying the breech to a basic manual horizontal sliding wedge type the new 10cm Kanone 1917 design evolved. Takom 5010 1/72 JAPANESE BATTLESHIP YAMATO TYPE94 46CM GUN MAIN TURRET NO.2. Italeri announces a new dual 15 cm Field Howitzer / 10,5 cm Field Gun kit at 1/72. Its  high carriage was only reduced 20mm from that of the s.12cm.K. All German 15 cm guns had an actual bore diameter of 14.91 cm (5.87 in). It was judged superior to weapons of smaller calibers in this role. 15cm K. and the 10cm K. differs from that of the 15cm. A manual winch, much like those found on modern boat trailers, drew the barrel off the recoil sleigh and onto the barrel cart. Scale: 1:35. WW1 German 10.5 cm leFH field howitzer - Memorial Park Cemetery, Indianapolis, IN This is a World War 1 era German 10.5 cm leFH field howitzer, located at the Legion Hill section, of the Memorial Park Cemetery, next to Washington Street, on the east side of Indianapolis, IN. Italeri announces a new dual 15 cm Field Howitzer / 10,5 cm Field Gun kit at 1/72. Consequently, the amount of materials, and horse-teams necessary to emplace them was greater than that of the s.F.H.”93. The same wheel and brake types were used as those found on the gun. The German designation for flat trajectory guns being (K) kanone as opposed to howitzers with arching trajectories designated (H) haubitze. 15 cm Heavy Field Howitzer [schwere Feldhaubitze] model 18 artillery gun walk around. Popular . The guns were individually sleeved in the three-gun mountings. This topic is categorised under: Guns » Howitzers » 15 cm sFH 18 6  Previously, the lg.15cm Kanone was considered a preferable gun because of the greater amount of shrapnel within its projectiles. Smaller divisions represent 50 metres each. Field guns offered direct line-of-fire attack angles while howitzers dealt with target areas through indirect fire by lobbing their munitions loads. s.F.H. Heavy Field Howitzer, in that the gun’s barrels were set very high on their carriages. over that of the s.F.H. Kanone 1904 with crew and associated instruments, During the same time period that Krupp’s 15cm.Experimental Howitzer ( V.H. This gives very high muzzle velocity and good range performance. Despite this, I am of the opinion that the true value of this combination of indirect fire sight fitted onto a flat trajectory gun was not appreciated until its capabilities were seen first hand in the early months of the war. The range drum (Zieleinrichtung) of the K.”14 was changed from the right side on the K.”14 to the left on the K.”17. As stated on the kit box, this is a brand new, new molds kit. The 150 mm SFH18 howitzer was widely deployed by the Wehrmacht on all of the key fronts during WW11. The type first entered service in 1942 and continued operational service up until the end of the war in 1945. 18 No change of designation was made regardless of recoil type. The 10cm K.”17 fired semi-fixed ammunition and had a maximum range of 14,100 meters. The new weapon was given a longer barrel, which provided a range out to 11,700 yards, and a box-type carriage taken from the 10.5cm Feldhaubitze 98/09 field howitzer. The 10cm. The 17 cm K 18 in MrsLaf was a 172.5 mm (6.79 in) towed gun with a barrel 47 calibres long. The German Army was forbidden from producing and possessing this gun in the terms of the Treaty of Versailles and ordered to scrap their arsenal, but some were hidden and subsequently deployed in World War Two. With it, theories of indirect fire were applied in a production maneuver weapon for the first time. DEVELOPMENT OF GERMAN 10CM HEAVY FIELD GUNS. These mats prevented the weapon from sinking into the ground while firing but did not take up the space or have the burden of weight of the heavy wooden foundations. The SFH18 had a simple and reliable design and a maximum range of 13.5 km. Despite the recognition that the K 17 would not have any anti-aircraft role, most of the heavy and expensive features added to the K 14 in a failed bid to equip it as an AA gun were retained. Saved from google.com. Add to cart . ... Set includes model of a gun 7,62-cm and 4 ammo-boxes with shells. The 10.5 cm FlaK 38 was a German anti-aircraft gun used during World War II by the Luftwaffe.An improved version was introduced as the 10.5 cm FlaK 39. The design of early non-recoil, heavy field guns such as the s. 9cm K., s. 12cm K., 15cm RK, lg. German artillery field gun 10.5 cm; world war one. German Empire: World War I 105: 10 cm sK 18 Nazi Germany: World War II 105: 10 cm sK … “02 was fitted with a dial like, optical indirect fire sight. C/73. The greater range attributed to the gun was not used to its fullest in this way, but its greater velocity, accuracy and rate of fire was expected to have good results on individual targets. Many of the problems with variable recoil encountered with the s.F.H. In March 1918 for every mile of their 50-mile trench network, the German Army had 92 field guns. CONTAINS ONE MODEL AND 5 FIGURES. The 10 cm M. 14 Feldhaubitze was a dual-purpose field and mountain gun used by Austria-Hungary during World War I. At least 22,133 examples were produced. (Later fuzes of 1908 pattern, are graduated as far as 73.) This gun replaced the 9 cm Models C/73/88 and C/73/91 as the field artillery equipment of the German Army at the end of the 19th Century. Series: WW II Military Miniatures. There were even plans to remount the K.”17 on an automotive suspension. Field guns fire a heavy shell on a relatively level trajectory from a longer barrel. This real German Army 88mm Gun was fired every hour at the D-Day Ohio World War 2 event in Conneaut Ohio on 21-22 August 2015. Details about WW2 German 10.5cm leFH field gun MOC artillery brick set by Buildarmy® 12 viewed per day. The weapon was not stable enough to fire without a platform, despite experiments with a rake-like devise to widen the trail. It was then developed as a quick fire; long range fortress and field artillery piece with its expected secondary mission to be an anti-aircraft weapon.

K. 1904. Suitable for Ages 14 & Older. Smokeless powder propellant R.P. The vehicle fitted with the artillery howitzer was called a ‘Geschützwagen’, which is literally translated as a ‘gun vehicle’. Its maximum elevation is only 30 degrees as opposed to the 42 degrees elevation for the s.F.H. (‘neuer Art’ — new pattern). In 1893 the German Army’s Foot Artillery put into service the 15cm. 1902 and Kanone 1904 in the form of “iron” sights fixed on their tubes for "emergency" direct fire. Ehrhardt “02 was tested 30 September 1902 at the Kummersdorf proving grounds and showed serious deficiencies. Before 1938 the leFH 18 was exported to Hungary and Spain. 4  On the positive side, the K.”99’s range was impressive, 10200 m with a higher rate of fire. Within the Great War, technology developed which had great application for these weapons. 1898/09 and 10,5cm l.F.H. It seems that increased elevation was given in order to engage aircraft.

[3] Here the Kanone 1917 and K 17/04 soldiered on along with the 10 cm Kanone 1918, these three most modern types saw excellent service throughout World War II. Some were sold to Sweden and Romania after the war, but some were hidden and saw service in World War II, mainly in the coastal defense role. I believe this is so because the K."04 is a gun, and unlike the howitzer does not require high elevation. The result was that German Foot Artillery was almost twenty years in development ahead of Allied countries in 1914. WW2 German 10.5cm leFH field gun MOC artillery brick set by Buildarmy® Item Information. There were two main types of self-propelled guns in the German Army during WW2. Get premium, high resolution news photos at Getty Images Felder. The 10.5 cm leFH 18 was the standard divisional field howitzer used by the Wehrmacht during the Second World War. giving a total weight of 2640 kg. “02 were not present in the development of the K. “04. Professor Rausenberger took little time to make these modifications and the new Kanone 1917/04 was ordered in August 1917. “93  and was most likely considered excessive to testing boards as well as maneuver commanders. ), 20 Das Ehrenbuch der Deutschen Schweren Artillerie (Organizational Foldout Table). 15mm WW11 Blitzkrieg German 10 Man Figure Packs ... CD311 10.5cm Le FH 18 Medium Field Gun. In May 1915, the first 10cm battery was reequiped with 10cm K.”14s  14 Box size: 290x190x45 mm. The Imperial German Army fielded several field gun types during the conflict and one such device became the 7.7cm Feldkanone 96 ("77mm Field Cannon Model of 1896"). Only their sight-mounts and range drums varied. Flat trajectory fortress and field guns were still developed for German Army service. Despite a few K.”04s downing balloons during the war, these pieces never fulfilled a useful air defense niche. Kanone 1892. German artillery field gun 10.5 cm; world war one. They were well paired with the 15cms, which did more commonly serve in the anti-personnel role. Generally it did not equip independent artillery battalions until after the Battle of Stalingrad in 1943. There are a total of [ 56 ] WW2 German Artillery (1939-1945) entries in the Military Factory. This made the gun too heavy to be transported as a single load; the barrel had to be removed and stowed on its own transport wagon. After all, it was not combat proven with German maneuver units, engaged with a major power. 11  These two weapons were submitted to comparative test against aerial targets, some of which were conducted at the Swinemuede test site. A more powerful equilibrator (Ausgleicher) was added to check the increased barrel weight and length. No need to register, buy now! However, by this time Krupp had developed a competing 10cm. Often these pieces were found in the reserve units. The drum has two rows of graduated markings for degrees in elevation (Gr) and range (m) with linkage for this range drum set above the barrel. 1916. Its rate of fire was insufficient, long-range accuracy and effects on target were inadequate. The 10.5 cm leFH 18 ( German: leichte Feldhaubitze "light field howitzer") is a German light howitzer used in World War II and the standard artillery piece of the Wehrmacht, adopted for service in 1935 and used by all divisions and artillery battalions. The letters ‘SF’ stand for ‘Selbstfahrlafette’ – self-propelled carriage. They were shown to be reasonably mobile and able to mass greater effects on dug in infantry and counter-battery targets than competing flat trajectory gun designs. The barrel consists of a jacket, an exchangeable tube, and a screwed-on breech. 18 10cm Kanone 17 (10cm K.17) Berlin 1935 (Abb.13/Blatt 1. However, this changed with the higher rate of fire, due to the recoil mechanism of the 10cm. These features are due to the K.”14s calling as an anti-aircraft gun. 9 cm. 2  The resulting field weapon was designated 10cm Kanone 1899. I am unaware of a K.”17 barrel cart in existence today, however, Ft. Sill’s K.”17 still has ramps affixed (riveted) to the rear of the carriage. Due to the rapid progress achieved with aircraft technology in this era it was believed necessary to further improve the K.”04. s.F.H. Range elevation is the calculation of the elevation needed for the barrel to fire a projectile of a certain type and weight to a particular point. It was also considered that the weight of ammunition should not increase. range for the s.F.H.”93. To solve the problem quick loading breech and fixed ammunition (with shell case) was proposed. The piece has a recoil length of 1550mm, which is automatically variable up to 950mm. Kanone 1914 called for an ability to directly engage aircraft. 1916. The Germans, therefore, rapidly updated their field artillery and produced the new 7,7 cm Field Gun Model 96 n.A. German le FH18 10,5 cm Field Howitzer File:German Great War 10.5-cm leFH 16 Field Gun, Summerside, Prince Edward Island.JPG From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository Jump to navigation Jump to search In 1916, the Imperial German Army took on the new "10.5cm leiche Feldhaubitze 16" (105mm light Field Howitzer Model of 1916) series guns. Horse transport was fairly effective with the K.”17 broken down into two loads. It was mounted on a recoil carriage fitted with a hydraulic buffer, running out springs, and a trail with spade. $48.99. Like all the German 10.5 cm recoilless rifles it shared shells with the 10.5 cm leFH 18 (light Field Howitzer). Suitable for Ages 14 & Older. With it, theories of indirect fire were applied in a production maneuver weapon for the first time. The wheels are taller for the 7,7cm limber and the ammunition box differs with both interior and … The German 7.7cm gun at the start of the war had a range of 6,000 yards this rose to 11,700 yards. The 150 mm SFH18 howitzer was widely deployed by the Wehrmacht on all of the key fronts during WW11. These pieces were often found in reserve units. From their initial design the 10cm Kanone 1904, 1914 and 1917 had indirect fire sights (with a direct fire scope) of the same types used on the 15cm. Removable ramps, which penned to stationary, carriage-mounted rails, were fitted to the rear of the carriage. Krupp continued to experiment with their K.”99 adding an elastic spade to supplement the hydraulic recoil brake fitted under the gun. The 10 cm Kanone 17 (10 cm K 17) was a field gun used by Germany in World War I and World War II. The ramps visible in the picture (see right), served to guide the barrel transport wagon into position to align the barrel with the recoil system to allow it to be winched into battery. First, a semi-automatic horizontal sliding wedge breech, much like those seen on anti-tank guns of W.W.II. The type first entered service in 1942 and continued operational service up until the end of the war in 1945. As with the K."17 both hydro-spring (Rohrbremse mit Federvorholer) and hydro-pneumatic (rohrbremse mit luftvorholer) type recoils were utilized. The 15 cm schwere Feldhaubitze 18 or sFH 18 (German: "heavy field howitzer, model 18"), nicknamed Immergrün ("Evergreen"), was the basic German division-level heavy howitzer during the Second World War, serving alongside the smaller but more numerous 10.5 cm leFH 18. Overall it appears that the 10 cm guns did find useful service. They were well paired with the 15 cm guns, which more commonly served in the anti-personnel role. The recoil type is hydro-spring. This is compared to the 12cm. In this new context the 10cm and other flat trajectory guns often served a counter battery role. The Foot Artillery organization was typically made of a mixture of two howitzer batteries, with one battery of heavy guns per Foot Artillery Battalion. Field guns are one of two main types of field artillery. “02, but simpler, with a small handle mounted directly to the worm gear. The 10cm K.”04 is a gun in the same level of development as the 15cm. The 150 mm SFH18 howitzer was widely deployed by the Wehrmacht on all of the key fronts during WW11. Please select: Quantity: 10 available / 26 sold / See feedback. In 1914 few active army corps had heavy guns within their organization. A Foot Artillery Battalion was typically organized with two howitzer batteries and one heavy gun battery. Reed mats were stored away on the limber as replacements for the, once necessary, firing foundations. Field guns offered direct line-of-fire attack angles while howitzers dealt with target areas through indirect fire by lobbing their munitions loads. Kanone 1899 with crewmen in a firing position. The K.'14 evidently did not have this mount, probably because of the protruding semi-automatic breech device on top of the breech ring. Flag images … In the course of the war, 724 of this design were delivered by Krupp. As final evidence of their value, the Kanone 1917 and K."17/04 soldered on with the Reichswehr and Wehrmacht. During World War II it served as the standard medium howitzer of the Royal Italian Army with the designation Obice da 100/17 modello 14 and after 1943 captured weapons were used by Nazi Germany's Wehrmacht under the … These guides were matched with the barrel cart (rohrkarren).

More about the 15 cm sFH 18 howitzer. 16  In spite of dropping the anti-aircraft mission and the need to simplify the new gun, it retained most of the extremely complicated and heavy devices to make it perform against aircraft. “99) was undergoing trials, Ehrhardt was ask to design a 10cm gun with traversing and recoil mechanisms, in which a platform was not necessary. Also, the 10cm developed into a difficult piece to manufacture largely because of its perceived value as an anti-aircraft weapon. Through field test, frequent evaluation in pre-war maneuvers, and research such as Lt. General Rohne’s New Study on Shrapnel Fire the howitzer types proved themselves. “13. Additionally, requirements for the 10cm. The design evolved into the 10cm “03 with reduced firing height and a range of 10000 meters. Early in 1893 the Artillery Armament Test Agency (A.P.K., Kgl. This gun was captured when the Australian Corps broke through the Hindenburg Line in September/October 1918. Adding to your cart. The 10 cm Field Gun K. 18 was at one time standard equipment for German Field Artillery. A recoil buffer was connected from the platform to the trail and wedges behind the wheels were used for counter-recoil. Takom 8003 1/35 cale JAGDTIGER D.KFZ.186 PRODUCTION TYPE 2020 NEW. Purpose built anti-aircraft guns were found to be the only reasonable answer for the problem. 8  In other words the technique developed along with the s.F.H. K.”99 rifling was of increasing pitch . New target acquisition means were developed with long range capabilities such as sound ranging, flash ranging and aerial observation. The gun and its limber could be separated and towed by horses, or more commonly by a half-track. At he same time it suffered from poor dispersion characteristics, small bore size, and transport complications. 166 leFH were exported to Bulgaria in 1943 and 1944 … 1916 are the same and share many common features with the limber for the 7,7cm l.F.K. It was designed and developed by Rheinmetall in 1929–30 and entered service with the Wehrmacht in 1935. Germany was forbidden these guns by the Versailles Treaty and was supposed to scrap or sell all existing weapons.

By 1918 all corps incorporated heavy guns. There are 2 larger guns and 2 mortars, located in the Legion Hill section. About the 7.7cm FK 96 N.A - World War I Field Gun: 7.7cm Feldkanone 96 neuer Art was an updated version of the original FK 96, the standard field gun adapted by the German Army in 1896. Recoil was made easier to manufacture and maintenance by eliminating variable recoil. There was no requirement for the K.”17 to provide an anti-aircraft role. The K.”14 has three unusual features. They, of course still had the limitations of a relatively small projectile and poor dispersion characteristics of a gun verses a howitzer. Evidence of this doubt can be seen on pre-war howitzers and guns such as the s.F.H. 1916 are the same and share many common features with the limber for the 7,7cm l.F.K. In spite of this logic, the Artillery Armament Test Agency did not want this order completed because of the advances seen in testing the new K.”17. Even Bruchmueller, in his 1922 work, says of the 10cm, that it was looked on by howitzer batteries like a stepmother (Stiefmuetterlich) looks at the other child. The K.”04 was chosen over the K.”14 or the potential of the new K.”17 because of its simplicity and relative ease of manufacture. The kit will build your choice of one artillery piece of different calibers ( 10.5 cm and 15 cm ) that used a common carriage. 20Overall it appears the 10cms did find useful service. In this context “siege gun” implies a weapon in which the gunner can sight directly on his target, usually overlooking it from a greater elevation. This piece pioneered the role of heavy artillery in support of maneuver. Second, are two elevation systems. 1 had a tube 35 calibers in length, a horizontal sliding wedge breech of the Ehrhardt system, variable recoil, rear set trunnions, spring equilibrator, traversing system with a range of 6 degrees, range and sight elevation systems, and elevation from –5 to +45 degrees. Early in the war, demands for these flat trajectory guns increased to such a degree that to supplement this need, many captured foreign tubes were put into service along with German Naval and fortress flat trajectory pieces. 15 cm Field Howitzer / 10.5 cm Field Gun. Motor transport of this piece was also sometimes utilized. The light field howitzer, the 10,5 cm Model 98, was also on a rigid carriage, so this was improved too, and a recoil system incorporated. With the outbreak of war in August 1914 the Krupp piece went into service as the 10cm Kanone 1914, with 128 initially ordered. 15, In its artillery role, the 10cm Kanone 1914 proved effective in combat and generated much interest in a longer-range piece along similar lines. In 1909 and 1910 at Frisches Haff along the Baltic coast the 10cm Kanone 1909 was tested against aerial targets. One was fitted with an anti-tank gun and the other with an artillery howitzer, like the 15cm sFH 13/1 (Sf) auf Geschützwagen Lorraine Schlepper(f) Sd.Kfz.135/1. The double elevation system, 45-degree elevation, variable recoil, and the attachments for fitting the 360-degree traversing platform were all retained. Letters V, K and A, as in 1905 pattern. 100% buyer satisfaction. Experience gained with the s.F.H. This was effective because of the high rate of fire characteristic of the K.”17.
