Flames of War 1/100 18/25pdr gun BSO507
With one 18/25 pdr gun, one gun limber & one gun turntable.
The OQF 25 pdr Mk I, more commonly known as the 18/25 pdr, was to see service in Europe and North Africa in the early stages of World War Two.
It used the Mk 4P 18 pdr carriage, the ’P’ indicating the use of pneumatic tyres for motorised use. Because the 18 pdr carriage was not intended for use with the new 25lb round, a reduction was made to the charge and as a consequence the range was decreased from the desired 15,000 yards to 11,800 yards. Despite abandoning many of these guns on the beaches of Dunkirk, the 18/25 pdr served the British Army until the development of a dedicated 25 pdr carriage that allowed the 25 pdr to reach its full potential.
