These are more 15mm Peter Pig miniatures. They come in packs of 2 so I have used just 1/2 a pack of crew. This will allow me to put the remaining crew either with different cannon or Allow me to buy another pack of these. As the crew come in 3 different poses I was less keen on the same figure repeated on each base more than once. So 2 figures and not 3 was my choice.
The (九二式歩兵砲, Kyūni-shiki Hoheihō Battalion howitzer was a very good gun being both light and effective. It was light enough to drag through jungle settings and as it fired High explosive Smoke and Armoured Piercing rounds.
In PBI if has a gun factor of 6 when used in anti tank so it would be possible to destroy a Sherman but it would be lucky to do so. But something like a Stuart would be a much easier kill. So while not a dedicated Anti tank weapon it was still capable.
Used extensively in Manchuria/China as well as the Pacific Islands Captured ones were also used by the US Marines.
That is it for today. Just 2 more stands for my Pacific war project.
Take care all the best Clint
