Heavy Artillery Battery (GBX46)


The specifications of what would become the s10cm K18 howitzer were given to both Krupp and Rheinmetall for developed during the 1920s. Adapted for service in 1933-34, the s10cm K18 was actually an amalgamation of the Krupp designed carriage and the Rhienmetall designed gun.

During the battle of France, the Panzer divisions gained an additional heavy artillery battalion. These battalions had eight of the excellent 15cm sFH18 heavy howitzer and four of the lighter long-range s10cm K18 guns.

The heavy howitzers proved their worth time and again as British and French troops reeled under the impact of their 95 lb. (44kg) shells. The K18 guns (actually of 105mm calibre) proved their worth in long-range counterbattery fire against enemy artillery, and as an improvised anti-tank weapon against heavy British and French tanks.
