    Produced from 1941 onwards, the M2A1 105mm Howitzer was the workhorse of US Army and USMC artillery units in WWII. With more than 8500 M2/M2A1 howitzers produced, the type saw extensive combat in the European and Pacific theaters. Indeed, one in every five shells fired by the US Army in WWII was from a 105mm Howitzer. The gun had an 11.27km range. In the Pacific the 2260kg weapon was widely operated by the USMC, quickly gaining a reputation for its accuracy and potency. The M2A1 was an improved version of this field gun that had a modified breech, while the new M2A2 split-trail carriage had a larger gun shield, and an enclosed screw traverse system. This howitzer was typically operated by a crew of eight men, and it was usually towed by a 6x6 2.5-ton truck.
