New book, 208 pages, 408 photos. Towed guns, howitzers and a variety of mortars were used during the early years of Heil Ha'Totchanim (Artillery Corps). These weapons included homemade mortars such as a small number of the locally-designed and built Davidka (Little David), pre-WW1 Napoleonchik Howitzers, and ex British QF (Quick firing) 25-pounder guns/howitzers. Small quantities of other vintage or near vintage pieces dating back to both world wars, were also purchased or otherwise acquired from various sources and used as well. In the beginning, by necessity, some of these weapons were combined with various vehicles also obtained from multiple sources. Having already seen the improvisations made using the Sherman tank chassis in Volume 1 and 2, plus different weapon systems mounted on American-built half-tracks in Volume 3, this fourth volume looks at IDF self-propelled artillery up-to-date.
