The howitzer is a large piece of field artillery that dates back to the 17th century. Technically, howitzers were designed to fill a field artillery role between a cannon with a direct angle of fire and a mortar with a high, lobbing trajectory. The howitzer is designed to send rounds downrange with high trajectories and a steep angle of descent.
These 38 oz Antique Finish Silver Soldiers Collection Howitzer Cannon Statues depict the iconic American field artillery piece used from World War II until the end of the Vietnam War when it was eventually replaced by a more modern piece. The howitzer depicted here is the classic M114 155 mm cannon.
The M114 was designed as a medium-range artillery piece that was light, devastating, and mobile. The United States Army designed by the 155 mm howitzer for easy towing behind Jeeps so that forward units could quickly deploy the gun and bring firepower to the battle to protect frontline troops without advanced coordination.
All of the silver statues in the Silver Soldiers Collection have an antique polish from Hotco. The polish helps to highlight the intricate elements of the designs and deliver an heirloom-quality finish. The 38 oz Howitzer comes with a soldier to man the gun, reload, aim, and fire it. Your collection isn’t complete without the Arty Red Leg Statue. If you need your Howitzer loaded, Arty is your man.
