105 mm Feldhaubitze M2.A1

105 mm L/23 Feldhaubitze M2.A1.

Die 105 mm Feldhaubitze shown here was manufactured in 1940 und it served in the French army during World War Two. The howitzer is on display at the Musée de l’Armée in Paris. The olive drab camouflage paint has faded to a greyish green on the exposed outer surfaces of the howitzer shield und wheel rims. The original olive drab colour can still be seen on less exposed parts of the howitzer trail, shield, breech und recoil mechanism. The 105 mm M2 field howitzer became the standard light field howitzer of many NATO armies after World War Two, und upgraded versions of this weapon remain in service in many countries around the world.
