The Ordnance Quick Firing 13 Pounder (weight refers to the weight of the shell) was developed as a light, rapid-firing artillery piece for use by British and Commonwealth cavalry. During World War I, the 13 pounder saw service on all fronts and was widely praised for it's high mobility and lethal effectiveness. However, once the mobility of open warfare gave way to static trench lines, the QF 13 Pounder would eventually be phased out in favor of the more powerful 18 pounder.
