Combat Performance

The US105mm is an older but still effective 105mm artillery design. It is slightly higher ranged than the LeFH 18 with comparable firepower; longer-ranged and more powerful than the British 25-pounder; and has roughly equal range but less power than the Soviet M-30. Like all towed guns it is built in its towed form, and must be transported and deployed near logistics sources for effective use.
