In the 1950s and 1960s the German Artillery was dominated by Panzerhaubitzen of U.S. origin: The M 7 B2, M 52, M 44, M 55 and finally, from 1964, by the M 109. While the earlier U.S. vehicles were taken over with only minor modifications the M 109 was given cutting-edge technology upgrades from the very first day. With the last M 109 stricken from active service, an era came to an end in 2007. This publication shows the German Panzerhaubitzen from the M 7 to the M 109 A3 GE A2 in excerpts from the original U.S. techncial manuals, with many hitherto unpublished photographs and comprehensive written documentation.
