  • 105mm Light Howitzer vs. 25 Pounder

    By majority opinion, those weapons are tied for the best divisional guns in WWII. What are the differences in their performance? By what I can gather, the 105mm shoots a bigger and more destructive shell, and has a higher trajectory that is useful against entrenched positions. The 25 pdr. is more accurate and capable of an impressive volume of fire. It seemed UK and CW gunners considered the 25 pdr. to be quick handling. I am sure I am missing a lot of relevant stuff. Any thoughts?
