About the M3 105mm Light Howitzer:

The M3 Howitzer was developed in World War II by the US Army to fulfill the need for fire support for its airborne infantry unit.

The M3 saw extensive service with US Army during the campaign in Europe, with M3s landing with glider-borne infantry battalions on D-Day and steadily reinforced throughout the European campaigns.
