M198 105mm Howitzer Wooden Model
Military Mahogany presents a beautiful handcrafted mahogany wood replica of the M198 155mm Howitzer. Main gun for this model will pivot left or right, support legs swing in and out and wheels do roll. This platform is in service currently with the Marine Corp and once was with the US Army before being retired a few years ago. The M198 howitzer is a medium-sized, towed artillery piece, developed for service with the United States Army and Marine Corps. It was commissioned to be a lightweight replacement for the WWII-era M114 155 mm howitzer. It was designed and prototyped at the Rock Island Arsenal in 1969 with firing tests beginning in 1970 and went into full production there in 1978. It entered service in 1979 and since then 1,600 units have been produced and put into operation. The M198 is being replaced in US and Australian service by the M777 howitzer.
