Description

WW2 Rare German Booster Charge Container For The 15 cm Schwere Feldhaubitze 18 or sFH 18 ("heavy field howitzer, model 18). O 1344 - O 1344

This is a rare WW2 German container for the booster charge for the15 cm Schwere Feldhaubitze 18 or sFH 18 (heavy field howitzer, model 18) introduced in 1935. The weapons lack of range on the Eastern Front lead to the introduction for the gun of a muzzle brake that allowed a larger special 7 or 8 charge to be used to increase the range by nearly 1800 metres. This is the lacquered container, 23cm high and 17cm in diameter to hold charges 7 and 8 and consists of rolled steel seam welded cylindrical container with a welded on flanged base. The lid is a steel pressing with a wire handle held on by eight spot welds. The lid is stenciled Send-Kart. 7+8 s.F.H 16 in white. Inside the container is a small brown coloured paper label printed in German relating to the use of the booster charges. A rocket-assisted projectile was later developed to further increase the range of the gun. The price includes U.K. delivery. O 1344
