About the M7B1 Priest – 105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage:

The M7 Priest was an American self-propelled artillery vehicle produced during WWII. Witnessing the events of the war, U.S. Army observers realized that they would need a self-propelled artillery vehicle with sufficient firepower to support armored operations. The pilot vehicles used the M3 chassis with an open-topped superstructure, mounting an M1A2 105 mm howitzer, and following trials, adding a machine gun. As the M4 Sherman tank replaced the M3, it was decided to continue production using the M4 chassis. The British had logistical problems with the M7, as it used U.S. ammunition that was not compatible with other British guns and had to be supplied to units.

During the Battle of the Bulge, each U.S. armored division had three battalions of M7s, giving them unparalleled mobile artillery support. To maintain a low silhouette, the howitzer’s elevation had to be restricted to 35°. In British service, some M7s carried a radio set, which required the removal of 24 rounds of ammunition.

It was used through the end of the war, at the Battle of Berlin the Red Army would bring the guns to point blank range to smash through German fortifications with heavy 203mm shells.

It was designed in 1931 by Russian engineer Nikolai Nikititsch Magdesiew, and was produced from 1932 throughout the course of the war, 871 were built in total.

About the PzKfz VI King Tiger:

The Tiger II is a German heavy tank used during WWII. It was the successor to the Tiger I, combining the latter’s thick armor with the armor sloping used on the Panther medium tank. The tank weighed almost 70 tons and was protected by 100-185 mm of armor to the front. It was armed with the long barreled 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71 anti-tank cannon, and the chassis was also the basis for the Jagtiger turretless tank destroyer. The Tiger II was issued to heavy tank battalions of the Army and the Waffen-SS. It was first used in combat during the Invasion of Normandy on July 11, 1944.

Development for the tank started as far back as 1937. Two design contracts were in competition for production, with Henschel officially winning and subsequently producing all Tiger IIs. Two turret designs were used in production vehicles. The Tiger II was developed late in the war and built in relatively small numbers. Orders were placed for 1,500 Tiger IIs but production was severely disrupted by Allied bombing. Only 492 units were produced by the end of the war. The Tiger II was remarkably agile for such a heavy vehicle, with contemporary German records noting the tactical mobility was as good or better than most German or Allied tanks. There are several surviving Tiger II units at museums across the world.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 68.5 tons (early turret); 69.8 tons (production turret)
  • Crew: 5 (commander, gunner, loader, radio operator, driver)
  • Armor: 25-185 mm (1-7 in)
