Hi all,

It seems that the germans abandoned this 15cm sFH18 howitzer after his barrel exploded

Hi all,

Another image from EBay.
According to the number of photos that can be found of german howitzers with his barrels blown up, it seems this was a fairly common circumstance. 8O :?

Does anyone know why this happened? defective ammunition??
