Post subject: Prairie du Rocher IL German WWI artillery

Here are two pieces in the very small town of Prairie du Rocher IL, located on the American Bottoms area next to the Mississippi River:



It's a German Kanone 16 150 mm gun dating to 1917 (I think), made by Krupp, and comes complete with the barrel cart for road transport. It is one hell of a big piece for the limited weight of projectile that it throws.



This second piece is on the same property (American Legion Post 622), and is a sFH 02 L12 15 cm heavy field howitzer. Both have steel wheels without any trace of rubber tires.

The photos are of poor quality, since we were time constrained (and stopped for a piece of pie at a renowned local roadhouse on the way there).
