105-mm m61/37 towed howitzer

Country of Origin: Finland

description

The Finnish m61/37 105-mm howitzer (also known as the M-61/37 and the H 61-37) combined the carriage of an older Finnish howitzer with new barrel and gun cradle. The result was a conventional-looking weapon with a short barrel and a single-baffle muzzle brake, recoil mechanism under the barrel, curved gun shield and sliding block breech. The two-wheel carriage was fitted with split, box-section trails, each of which had a lifting handle and a small spade at the trail ends.
