105/28 Howitzer Battery (IBX08)
with four 105/28 howitzer with crew, Command Rifle team, Staff team and Observer Rifle team.

The 105/28 howitzer was a World War One vintage gun of French design (Canon de 105 mle 1913 Schneider or L13 S); originally starting life as a design on the drafting board of the Russian Putilov Armaments factory. It proved a popular design and was exported to various countries, Italy among them.

"The hardest fighting troops in the Italian army are the artillerymen. They are selected from the best recruits and have the most intense, technical and professional training. They also fight very bravely, often defending their guns to the last man. A Cannon Battery is rated as Artillery. A Howitzer Batteries are rated as Artillery."

The breech mechanism was based on a screw design; a swinging arm allowed the breech to swing in and out of the breech ring without having to be withdrawn axially. Upon opening the breech, a shell guide was raised from the bottom of the breech ring to assist in guiding the shell into the chamber. The 105/28 also had a number of safety features to ensure the gun wasn’t discharge unless the breech was properly closed and the barrel had fully recovered from the recoil of a previous firing.

The 105/28 howitzer had a maximum elevation of 37o and could fire it’s 16.3kg shell up to range beyond 12kms. It remained a common weapon during World War Two and continued in Italian service until 1943 seeing action on both the African and Russian fronts.
