Herman Goring 7.5cm leIG18 Gun GE558
HG 7.5cm leIG18 gun (GE558) with 2 guns, Observer team & Command team.
The 7.5cm leIG18 was developed by Rheinmetall following WWI. It was adopted by the Wehrmacht in 1927 and remained in service until 1945. It had a unique loading system.
The breech was fixed and the end of the barrel was hinged. The gun was then loaded 'shotgun' style by elevating the breech end of the barrel.
In Flames Of War
The light 7.5cm leIG18 infantry gun is a great piece of support equipment for your troops.
It offers a front-line artillery element to your grenadiers, providing valuable pins before an assault. Their direct-fire Firepower 3+ is very helpful picking out heavy weapons and blasting them with a reasonable ROF 2. They are also a handy platoon for its Anti-tank of 9, allowing it to smack an unsuspecting tank or halftrack!
