The LeFH 18 was the standard divisional field howitzer used by the Wehrmacht in WWII. In 1941 the original design was fitted with a muzzle break allowing for greater range, this model was known as the leFH 18M. In March 1942 a requirement was issued for a lighter howitzer. This led to a second modification, known as the leFH 18/40. This modification consisted of mounting the barrel of an leFH 18M on the carriage for a 7.5 cm PaK 40 antitank gun. The new carriage increased the rate of fire as well as making the howitzer lighter. Additionally, a more efficient muzzle brake was added, decreasing the recoil. With a 105mm (4.13 in) shell and a range of 10,675 m (11, 675 yards - over 6 miles) it was a powerful and versatile piece of artillery.
