hello Jos, i think these heavy ones are only Heerstruppe - no divisional artillery

Hello Jos,

I want to improve myself:

between 30.6.1943 and 30.9.1943 the schwere Artillerie-Abteilung (mot.) 557 (17 cm Kanone in Mörserlafette) was part of Artillerie-Regiment (mot) 33 (as II. Abteilung) of the 15. Panzer-Grenadier-Division in Sicily

at 30.9.1943 it were Heerestruppe again

Hi all,

v60pih member posted this image here: viewtopic.php?f=70&t=145253&start=435

The gun seems a 17cm K18 but the wheels....seems to have round holes instead of triangular holes as it is standard in the 17cm K18 .... :? :?

Sturm78,

You posted pictures of 21 cm Mrs 18 with 6-hole wheels on 19 Aug 2013 and 27 Feb 2014 on this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=70&t=165349&start=15

Here are pictures of a 21 cm Mrs 18 carriage (same carriage for the 17 cm K18 as we know) with 6-hole wheels taken at Aberdeen Proving Grounds:

See also on wikipedia: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... r_18_1.jpg

The tube was sometimes transported on a trailer with 6-hole wheels see here:

From the caption: soldier of the 11th Armored Division gazing into the barrel of an abandoned German 250mm [sic- 210 mm] artillery piece found outside of Mayen, Germany on March 10, 1945.

Yes, I've seen some (very few) wartime images of 21cm Mrs 18 howitzers with wheels with six round holes, but never an 17cm K18.

I think this kind of wheels were used towards the end of the war only.

Hi Jos,

Certainly looks Italian and the tank looks like a P40 - judging by the tracks, but maybe M13/41.

Could this be a 17 cm K 18 ?? it looks that the the soldier on the far left on the barrel has his right foot on a roller
what is typical for the 17 cm K 18 . According to the Ebay caption it should be Italy ( Sicily ) wat fits with a early
placed picture and the info from Uwe .

Regards Jos
