Post subject: T8 105mm

Next week I will be ordering a number of files from the national archives on the towed AT gun T8 105mm.

There's always a chance It's some experimental howitzer, but regardless the information should prove interesting. So little seems to be published on this piece.


Hopefully it's the T8 105mm, the archives don't have the most descriptive titles and more often then not even a blurb on content. quite a bit of info on it will apply to the tank T5E1/2 guns as well.

Papers finally came.

Large majority of it is memos sent back and forth talking about the breech being destroyed.

Someone had mislabeled 155mm powder as 105mm powder in testing and they loaded 17lbs of it worth into the cartridge of a T30 round, It blew it apart.


There are some little nice details otherwise which I scanned and uploaded below.
