Armortek Limber & 25 Pounder at Bovington under power

Post by Mark Russell » Sat Nov 08, 2014 8:20 pm

Hi please see the pictures below of my Armortek Limber & 25 Pounder being towed temporarily by my scratch built US Dodge 3/4 tonne WC52 Weapons Carrier (well until the Morris Quad becomes available!!!).

I was down at Bovington today and was reliably informed that the Dodge did in fact tow the 25 pounder and limber on certain occasions as I was worried that it wasn't historically accurate!

Also a link below to video clip of it running today at Bovington;

Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark,

Your 25 pounder and Limber look good in the pics and video clip being towed by Dodge Carrier.
I wonder what they would look like being towed by Morris Quad haha?

Cheers
Ian

Hi
Great video.
In northern Burma 178th field rgt used cmp Chevrolet trucks to tow their 25pds and 3.7inch howitzers.

Hello Mark, seeing the 25PDR/Limber on the 'move' makes all the difference. I have the gun and limber, just waiting for the upgrades from Armorpax before progressing. Fingers crossed it's a Morris Quad..... :) Mick
