BL 8-inch Howitzer Mark VI.

Heavy gun of the First World War, produced in 1915 at the Vickers plant. In addition to the UK, it was manufactured in the U.S.A. under licence by the Midvale Steel and Ordnance Co., at Nicetown, Pennsylvania. This type of cannon was used on every major front of the First World War; some were transferred to allies, such as Tsarist Russia. After the First World War the Mark VI was declared as obsolete in Great Britain which converted to other types with a new standard of calibre, and in 1939 some of the American guns, after the Soviet Union's aggression against Finland, were transferred to the armed forces of that country, where they remained in combat service until the end of the 1960s.

1:72 scale plastic model kit from Roden, requires paint and glue.
