The US-built truck was produced in large numbers for that period (nearly 18.000 were delivered).
The howitzer saw service from WWI to WWII. Afaik, operators were the UK, USA, Russian Empire/Soviet Union, Finland, France, Canada, Australia & South Africa.

After Strelets announced a great looking set of WWI Turkish infantry a week ago, here are even more good news for the WWI enthusiasts.

Hope that Roden will do a WWII variant of the gun in the future. :yeah:
