105 H/41 (105 mm howitzer model 1941ou Skoda H2)

105 H/41 (105 mm howitzer model 1941ou Skoda H2)
This howitzer was design of Czechoslovakian Skoda factory, which Germans kept in production for their own use. The howitzer had split trail, breech with vertical sliding breech block, wood wheels with steel hoops and gun shield which had separate part for high trajectory firing. Muzzle brake containing two rings was rather similar design as used in 75-mm Skoda antiaircraft gun. Recoil system located below barrel was rather typical pneumatic/hydraulic type. Ammunition was cartridge-seated type with 5 propellant charge sizes. Barrel was also autofregated type (without sleeves). The howitzers had originally been designed to different ammunition, but had been modified to fire the German standard 105 x 155R ammunition. Wheels were wood with steel hoops.Finland bought 27 howitzers from the Germans and they arrived in summer of 1941. The first shipment containing 16 howitzers arrived with S/S Myllykoski 20th of June 1941. The second shipment containing 10 howitzers in August of 1941 and the third (final) shipment containing 3 howitzers in September of 1941. Finnish military issued the howitzers to Light Artillery Battalion 10 and Heavy Artillery Battalion 3 for Continuation War. Finnish soldiers considered these howitzers to be otherwise good, but their wheels of were much too weak (they limited towing speed below 20 km/h) and service life of their barrels was quite short. The howitzers remained in use until end of the war. After the war they remained in training use and reserved for possible wartime use for quite some time. In post-war era the howitzers were also equipped with new disk wheels, which had tires made from sponge rubber.Ammunition used in these howitzers were the same as in 105 H/33 and 105 H/37 howitzers
