French DIM 105mm and 47mm ammo basic load

Post by Kelvin » 07 Jan 2018 05:30

Hi, French DIM had used P-107 half-track to tow its 105mm howitzers, I want to ask how many 105mm rounds carried in this half track with its crew , anyone know that ?

Also, 47mm antitank gun was towed by Laffly W20T truck, also, besides its crews, how many 47mm rounds carried in this truck ? Also any member could provide help on those topic ? Thank

First point : The laffly W20T was not dedicated to be used to tow 47 mm antitank guns . It should be the Laffly Hotchkiss W15T .
Anyway , you can consider something like 30 to 40 shots from the carrier .

Hi, Alain, I see P-107 half track carried 75 cm field gun crew and 72 round ammunition and Reunalt UE tractor carried 150 25mm AP, I think French 47, 105 and 155 have informtion like that.
