Milicast Model Company :: Premiere Range (1/76) :: British & Commonwealth :: Guns, Missiles and Trailers :: QF 7.2" Howitzer Mk. VI (on the M1A1 "Long Tom" chassis)

QF 7.2" Howitzer Mk. VI (on the M1A1 "Long Tom" chassis)
QF 7.2" Howitzer Mk. VI (on the  M1A1 "Long Tom" chassis)  
The 7.2" Howitzer Mk.VI used the "Long Tom" Carriage M1 but replaced the original 155mm barrel with the new 7.2" barrel which was 1.96m longer than the earlier marks (see UK253). In addition to the longer barrel, a fifth charge was added to the ammunition which increased the range to 19,667 yards. The M1 carriage also provided a far more stable platform so greatly increasing the guns accuracy.
The first Mk.VI 7.2" Howitzers were issued to batteries from mid-1942 and saw action in North Africa, Italy, NW Europe and in Burma. The usual tractor was the Scammell Pioneer (UK142), but as they were never available in sufficient numbers from late 1943 the Pioneer was supplemented by the Albion CX22S (UK277).
The QF 7.2" Howitzer Mk. VI formed parts of "Heavy" regiments of Army Group Royal Artillery (AGRA) units, providing heavy fire support for British and Commonwealth troops from 1942 onwards and seeing action in the Korean War. They remained in British Army service until the early 1960's.
