Product Description

WH062 “10.5cm Light Field Howitzer”

This was the standard divisional field piece used by the Wehrmacht in WW2.  Designed and developed by Rheinmetal as far back as 1929/30 it entered service with the Wehrmacht in 1935.  It was also a successful export model being sold to Hungary, Spain, Bulgaria, Finland and even Sweden.

The K&C model was only previously available in desert AK colours.  Now, as you see it comes in standard ‘field grey’.

  The gun can be towed behind the Sd.Kfz.ll or with trails extended for firing duties.  The barrel also elevates and depresses.
