25 pdr gun (8th Army) (x2)
Contains 2 large bases, 2 guns, 2 limbers and 10 crew.
The 25pdr was the mainstay of British artillery forces in the desert. Despite its primary role as an artillery piece it quite often found itself in the anti-tank role when the little 2pdr couldn’t hold off the up-armoured Panzers.
The 25pdr Mk 2 quickly entered service with the 8th Army and the rest of the British forces after the loss of most of the 25pdr Mk 1 (18/25pdr) during the evacuation of Dunkirk.
