Hotchkiss Sixpounder

The Ordnance QF 6-pounder 6 cwt Hotchkiss Mk I and Mk II was a shortened version of the original QF 6 pounder Hotchkiss naval gun, and was developed specifically for use in

the sponsons of the later Marks of British tanks in World War I, from Mark IV onwards. The original QF 6 pounder naval gun had turned out to be too long for practical use

Try Bluehost its fast

with the current British heavy tank designs, which mounted guns in sponsons on the side rather than turrets on top as modern tanks do. The muzzles of the long barrels

sometimes dug into the mud or struck obstacles when the vehicle crossed trenches or shell craters. The shortened QF 6 pounder 6 cwt Mk I of single tube construction was

introduced in January 1917 in the Mark IV tank, and may be considered the world’s first specialised tank gun. The shortened barrel incurred a reduction in muzzle velocity,

but as tank guns in World War I were used against unarmoured or lightly armoured targets such as machine gun nests and artillery pieces at relatively short ranges of a few

hundred yards, this was not a major disadvantage.
Due to its decent size and short barrel length this gun is particularly useful as generic WWI – WWII style artillery piece since you can easily accomodate gun and its

personnel into scene and still maintain high level of detail with its this models is made.
