Bolt Action - US Army 105mm Medium Artillery M2A1 (Winter)
The 105 mm M2A1 (M101A1) howitzer was the standard light field howitzer for the United States in World War II. These guns were grouped into 4-gun batteries. Their role was to lay down a barrage to prepare for an advance, or to break the impetus of enemy infantry attacks.
Artillery of this kind could even slow attacks by armoured vehicles. With a range of 11,000 metres and a shell that weighed nearly 15kg, the 105mm gun was a formidable weapon indeed.
