The QF ("Quick Firing") 25-Pounder was the standard British field gun of World War II and was developed to correct deficiencies found in British field pieces during the First World War. Design improvements included a new carriage with armored shield and built-in platform that allowed quick repositioning of the gun. The 25 Pounder could be fired at a high angle like a traditional howitzer, but could also be direct fired against attacking infantry and armored vehicles. The 25 Pounder was the standard field gun of all British and Commonwealth units during World War II and was not complete phased out of service until the 1970s.
