Canon de 105 court mle 1935 B

Canon de 105 court modèle 1935 B was a French howitzer used in World War II. Captured weapons were used by the German Heer as the 10.5 cm leFH 325(f). It was designed by the State Arsenal at Bourges to replace the World War I-era Canon de 105 court mle 1934 Schneider. Some 610 were originally ordered, although production was terminated in 1939 in favor of anti-tank guns. Only some 232 were in service when the German attacked in May 1940Design

Its most interesting feature was that the wheels, which were pressed steel with either solid rims or pneumatic tires, moved with the trail legs and "toed-in" when the gun was in action to provide more cover for the crew.
