Description

BL 7.2 Inch Howitzer

The BL 7.2 inch howitzer was a heavy artillery gun used by the British Army throughout World War II. .
From 1940 the World War I era BL 8-inch howitzers were re-lined to 7.2 inches (180 mm) and the old carriages were
retained although the original steel rimmed wheels were replaced with new balloon tyre wheels. The new four charge
ammunition increased the range to 16,900 yd (15,500 m), but when fired the recoil caused the weapon to rear violently
and jump backwards. To help eliminate this, ramps were placed behind the wheels.

– PE detail sheet
– basic ammo and artillery equipment included in the kit + decals
