Combat Performance

The Pack Howitzer is a light infantry support gun; a low-velocity, high-arcing 75mm cannon. As a light design it is able to be moved by its crew without the need of transportation vehicles. It provides infantry with medium-distance high explosive ordnance capability, similar but more accurate, direct and powerful than mortars.
