152 mm howitzer vz.18/47

Howitzer vz. 18/47, originally a German 150mm howitzer model 18 modified after the war for Russian ammunition 152mm, the number 47 indicates the year of reconstruction and introduction into service, the letter N then the origin of the weapon, so the 37S is a Soviet weapon in our country called "jaselka" according to its deployment by our artillerymen at Jasla.

I was warned that the letter N for weapons re-drilled to the Soviet caliber was not used due to the fact that the weapon was manufactured in our country (changes made it different) and the weapon was marked only 18/47. Checking from various sources, I found out that I was really wrong in the original post, and therefore I apologize to those I misled. (The excuse for me is not that the designation with (N) appears quite commonly, it is correct without it). The weapon has been used in our army for years.

Dear all,
a colleague Hlavatý here presented a beautiful photograph titled: Two types of húfnic, which clearly shows the characteristic appearance of the captured German howitzers and the form of its post-war modernization:
- cannon with úsťovou the brakes and the shorter the main is the 152 mm howitzer vz. 18/47 (d/27)
- gun without a brake with a longer main is 15 cm howitzer vz. 18N (design caliber 149 mm, d/29,5)

At the end of the forties were the German captured howitzer převrtány to the soviet caliber of 152,4 mm. The designers decided to reduce strain to arms and therefore during the prep was barrel shortened and fitted with dvoukomorovou úsťovou brake. From the captured howitzers, however, were taken almost without change these parts of the weapons: the cradle of the barrel, the upper part of the carriage, brzdovratné equipment, vyvažovače the barrel and the lower part of the carriage (chassis) with a shield. Thus the converted weapon was understood as a new type and was in the army classified as: 152 mm howitzer vz. 18/47. In CSLA served these howitzers, perhaps even in the late eighties..

Vo armament of československej army.

After the end of the military service in 1945 požiadal veliteľ delostrelectva vtedajšej Ms. army Škodove races Pilsen on rekonštrukciu about 200 kusov trofejných German 150 mm sFH on kaliber 152,4 mm.

In the year 1948 to 1955 tvorili the basis of the armament of the delostreleckých plukov, peších, rýchlych and mechanized divízií. In rokoch 1955 to 1966 were stored in the skladoch mobilizačných advances. Into the arms of the motostreleckých and tank divízií were opäť established in the year 1967 after the generálnych repair. Uvádza sa, that vo armament of ČSĽA were ešte in osemdesiatych rokoch last storočia, if ich nahrádzali self-propelled húfnice DANA.

Húfnica has sklznú drážkovanú the barrel with a horizontal klinovým záverom. Lafeta is dvojramenná, roztváracia.

152 mm húfnica vz.18/47 is in the skutočnosti the German 150 mm ťažká húfnica vz.18 adapted to sovietske strelivo caliber 152,4 mm so that with one používať rovnaké strelivo ako pre sovietsku 152 mm húfnicu vz.37. Vzhľadom on odlišnú konštrukciu especially and carriage, were preto essential niektoré obmedzenia in the use of the fillings.

These howitzers were in the works. regiments of martial motostřeleckých divisions of the western circuit really the end of the 80tých years stored in NZ, along with the T 111. Pity, a nice set of veterans. And complement it motostř. battalions of the OT 810. In the case of the blew. the conflict should it and amer. aggressor risk of it ripping out laughing.

Dear colleague,
I'm allowed to modify the appearance (staff culture) of your work.

In antikvariatu I came upon a sesitek, which is something like a "Wizard with komentari after a private sbirce". The photo is covered by the following text:

15cm s FH 18 Howitzer 1939 German

And pre war design weighing some 6,5 tons. Max range of 12,400 m. Was usually towed by and 12t SdKfz 8 Half Track. This gun came from Czech reserves in 1990, having been given to the Czechs by the Russians after the war. Many guns like this were captured from the Germans during their retreat from the Eastern Front and converted it to the 152mm. It has evidence of bullet and shrapnel damage to the wheels and frame. The muzzle brake is beileved and Soviet modification.

Arriving at Purfleet Dock.

Free translation:

Predvalecna gun weighing about 6.5 t with a maximum dostrelem 12 400m, tazena usually 12t polpasovym del tahacem Sd.kfz 8. These guns pochazeji of prebytku ci reserves CSLA, where after the war of Sovetskych sources. The council of such a weapon as this was ukoristena the Germans during their ustupu (or ustupovych battles) on the East front, and adjusted to one 152mm. The guns they carry on the rounds and lafete traces using strepinami and bullets. Ustova brake is probably Sovetska work.

Taken in Purfleet (I neoveroval, if it is twice, city, or some local name)

PS: due to the fact of one of the photo about from the year 1991 were its knowledge elsewhere than today. On the other hand, the council of the you the par muzei has been through and you know, from here we didn't have chips many nepresnosti. Sometimes even deliberately, because it byvalo candidates uvadet as Nemecke (it's pritazlivejsi) than Ceskoslovenske. Maybe, but today it is happening. Howitzer is nachazeji in the situation muzeich throughout Britain, similar as the council for a piece of vyzbroje, which were vzhledove attractive or known thanks to the propaganda (which to this day hasn't changed)..

Otázne is or would be sa on the contrary nepotrhali smiechom czechoslovak and sovietske prvosledové divízie on zmobilizovaných american advances..... Niečo iné su prvosledové, aj mierovo built forces and niečo iné su mobilizačne rozvinované forces, from ktorých drvivá väčšina bola in the period of the cold war vyzbrojovaná technique of prvoledových jednotiek a long time ago vyradenou..

While it is heavily off topic, but since you are it out in the open...

I think it is musical research server usarmy, where "resi" sberatelske raritky az shit. The other day there resili colors webingu (it is a british name, what's the US?). Just the colors of the excuses (going the right direction) of the belt, squirts, bandaliru, the packaging on the bottles and even nosne remeni 36 and 45. You'd be surprised at what all came out of american tovaren. Try to find it, I have it but I don't remember the address, but pohledam too. So this was this enough to make these vystrelky got nothing to utvarum and the commander of the units of such green-power and from the green-bile kanarky allowed. I guess it would Americanum in Europe good name neudelalo, file the smich.

But at the end of the 80.years of the war was one big joke, if such druhosledove utvary met (if the glade by the first sequence of mel at all, who to meet)..

Dear colleague "papergeorgi",
I'm missing the point of the debate, that here you're doing. Yet I allow you to thank you for the beautiful photo of the deposit Purfleet Heritage and Military Centre, which currently runs the private Mri. Alan Gosling with friends.

In my opinion, this stored howitzers and other equipment were intended as a backup for the exchange store. Therefore, you cannot expect that after fifteen years they will be howitzers in the same place.

The debate was limited to the konstatovani with one prikladem, nothing vic and nema more umysly with our efforts to cultivate it. At least not in this vlakne.

Otherwise how rikate, howitzers from Purfleet were in different part of the UK and one of the tech mist is this sbirka, to where he applies brozurka:
