105mm M34/Rh (Rheinmetall 10.5cm le FH 18

A batch of these German field howitzers was brought in 1934 to equip V Division. Another batch brought in 1935 equipped VII Division. In 1941 200 were ordered, these are the basic leFH18 production model but with the incorporation of a muzzle brake, necessitated by improvements in ammunition. In late 1944 another 200 were ordered to replace the last of the 75mm artillery pieces in Army use. New munitions including Armour Piercing and explosive anti-tank have also been procured.
