About this item
Designed in the 1930s the 25 Pdr was a 3.45 inches (87.6 mm) calibre weapon firing a shell weighing 25 pounds (11.3 kg), hence the name 25 Pdr. It was mounted on a 2 wheeled carriage utilising a circular firing platform. The firing platform was attached to the gun and when lowered it transferred most of the recoil forces to the ground thereby providing a very stable firing base. It also provided the gun with the ability to traverse rapidly using the road wheels.
The 25 Pdr used variable charge ammunition, with the shell being loaded first followed by the cartridge in its brass shell. It was fitted with both direct and indirect sights to provide accurate, rapid fire for both the howitzer and direct fire role with a maximum range of 12253m (13400 yds).
