It comes with no paperwork, the gun hasn’t been de-commissioned and would need to be before the sale. My father bought it from a museum in Holywell, Wales, which was in some kind of cave. That was 25 years ago, and the gun has been inside our cattle shed ever since. It really is in brilliant condition.
He was told the nazi gun was captured by the Russians in Russia and then used to fight the nazi’s in Czechoslovakia – some amazing history.
The 15 cm schwere Feldhaubitze 18 or sFH 18 (German: “heavy field howitzer, model 18”), nicknamed Immergrün (“Evergreen“), was the basic German division-level heavy howitzer during the Second World War, serving alongside the smaller but more numerous 10.5 cm leFH 18. It was based on the earlier, First World War-era design of the 15 cm sFH 13, and while improved over that weapon, it was the first artillery weapon equipped with rocket-assisted ammunition to increase range. The sFH 18 was also used in the self-propelled artillery piece schwere Panzerhaubitze 18/1 (more commonly known as Hummel).
The sFH 18 was one of Germany’s three main 15 cm caliber weapons.
