German Field Artillery 10,5cm Limber

Below: The 10,5cm lFH Howitzer Limber which is almost the same as the 7,7cm lFK Limber. The difference is that 7,7cm Guns have fixed shells that fit into their limber horizontally and 10,5cm Howitzers have shells that fit into their Limber Vertically, the foot rest is different, and the size of the 7,7cm limber box is much smaller that the 10,5cm limber box

Below: 7,7cm Limber frame, which is much the same as the 10,5cm Limber frame. The foot board appears to be the only difference

Below: Comparison drawing illustrating the differences between the 10,5cm lFH Limber (in Black)

and the 7,7cm lFK Limber (in Red). I have photos that show both a short wheel and a taller wheel with this limber.
