Obice da 149/12 is a howitzer of German origin.

DescriptionEdit

The Obice da 149/12 Mod. 14 is derived from the Krupp 15 cm schwere Feldhaubitze M. 13 of Germany and produced in Italy under license by Ansaldo and Vickers-Terni. The two Italian companies had also build two variants: the Mod. 16 mountain howitzer with reduced track width of 1.23 m and wheels of only 1000 mm radius as well as the Mod. 18 with a modified gun carriage and a curved shield positioned in front of the wheels. Assigned to artillery corps, the Obice da 149/12 was used during the Great War and the Spanish Civil War. When Italy entered World War 2 in 1940, still 580 Obice da 149/12 Mod. 14 and 116 Mod. 18 were in service alongside their successor, the Obice da 149/13. The howitzers were widely used during the war, not only by the Italian army, but also by the Germans, who used used captured ones as armament on fortifications and on self propelled artillery vehicles.

TriviaEdit

The gun model is provided by the Battlefield 1918 mod team under a content trade agreement.
