WOTW and Artillery
Close up of the guns with their new wheels.
The US Army developed the Long Tom 155mm guns in the late 1930's, just in time for WWII.
They replaced the barrel with a 203mm gun and little other change to make a more powerful gun.
Both were very accurate and widely used in WWII.
I use the Roco versions for WWII, but I use these Tootsietoy versions for the immediate pre-war guns.
These guns get served by my Strelets WWI Americans.
When the Martians attack in 1938, these guys will be there to meet them.
