Quote from: scooter on May 01, 2020, 07:32:04 AMA quick Wiki-fu bout on the 7.2" howitzer gives an HE shell weight of 202 pounds.
Quote from: kitnut617 on May 01, 2020, 10:16:58 AMThanks guys, and wiki was my first stop when looking for info. Although, the 7.2" page I looked through didn't show all of that info especially -- 'shell weight'OK, so next question, are these shells in this picture the HE variant ?
