Vietnam War – 105mm Field Artillery Battery

The M2A1 105mm howitzer was the mainstay of the United States artilleryunits during World War Two. First entering production in 1941, it quickly gaineda reputation for its high degree of accuracy and exceptional firepower.

Despite being developed during the 1920s, the gun didn’t enter goproduction due to the surplus number of World War One vintage 75mm field gunsthat were still in service. The project was put on hold till the United Statesentered World War Two in 1941. Designated as the 105mm howitzer M1, furtherrefinements were made during the course of the war with various designations.However, in 1962 the designation system for artillery changed and the 105mmM2A1 howitzer became known as the M101A1. The change in designation didn’tdetract from its performance in any way during the course of the conflict inVietnam.

While the M101A1 howitzer has been retired by the United States military; itcontinues to see service with many armed forces spanning the globe.

In Flames of War:

Staff Teams in Flames Of War Vietnam: To do their job, a staff team needslots of maps, plotting boards, charts and tables, not to mention radios andtelephones. All this equipment prevents them from being very mobile or effectivein combat.

Smoke: Sometimes your weapons won’t destroy the enemy quickly enough toprevent them from wreaking havoc on your own troops first. One way to protectyour troops in the meanwhile is to fire smoke at the enemy to temporarily impairtheir vision.

Gun Shields:Manning a gun in the thick of battle is a hazardous job. Tooffset the increased vulnerability of gun crews to enemy fire, many guns have abulletproof gun shield.
