About the Skoda Model 14/16 – Austro-Hungarian Field Artillery:

Although it had a shorter range than other artillery pieces during the First World War, the Skoda Modell 14/16 could fire high-explosive shells and had no difficulty destroying enemy fortifications. Modified from the 149mm Modell 14, the Modell 14/16 was an extremely heavy weapon. Weighing over 3 ½ tons, the gun required a large horse team to move.

Despite the weight, the Modell 14/16 was an improvement over its predecessor. Armed with a longer barrel and capable of firing lighter shells, this gun had better range and required no new training on behalf of artillery crews. The gun was built in large numbers, resulting in several armies continuing to use them when World War II broke out in September 1939.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 7,364 lbs (3340 kg)
  • Caliber: 149mm (5.8 in)
  • Range: 9,613 yds (8790 m)
  • Shell weight: 90 lbs (40.3 kg)
