Is this one of those howitzers on a Sherman chassis?

M8 GMC on Stuart chassis, I believe...note the angles and how the hiney kicks up there in the back.

He got it right. That is only a 75mm howitzer. I think the small size of the chassis makes it look a lot larger. (Shades take note having a small frame of refererence makes everything look bigger Laughing Shocked )
