The 25-pounder field gun was the primary piece of British field artillery during World War II, and its versatility made it an invaluable asset on various fronts. It was famed not only for its capability to fire high-explosive shells but also for its adaptability to various roles, from anti-tank warfare to delivering smoke screens. The gun's design boasted a perfect balance of range, firepower, and mobility, making it one of the most iconic artillery pieces of its era.
Complementing the 25-pounder's capabilities was the Quad artillery tractor, a robust vehicle designed to tow the gun and its ammunition limber. Its all-wheel-drive design ensured that it could navigate the toughest terrains, from the deserts of North Africa to the muddy fields of Europe. The Quad's sturdy build and reliability made it the ideal companion for the 25-pounder, ensuring that the gun could be swiftly repositioned and redeployed as the dynamics of battle shifted.
