    3 inch Howitzer case and projectiles


    I have a 3 inch How case. The point is that i have no document about the type of projectiles. Someone thought that the HE you see on the 77MM CWT cases also belong to the 3 inch HOW?????????

    Can anyone help me out???

    Re:3 inch Howitzer case and projectiles

    Hi DM,
    I am also looking for a projectile for a 3in how case.....theres a pic of my case further back in the projectile section (i think
    If you look at good old Tony Williams site, ( http://www.quarry.nildram.co.uk/tankuk2.jpg ) the round second from the RH end is the 3in how with HE proj.

    I must admit, I don't know the history of the development of the 3in howitzer,....and therefore a likely direction to find a correct projectile. If anyone knows, please enlighten us.

    With luck, we'll both find one at Beltring or before
