Armo Model 1/72 M110A2 SP Howitzer Turkish Army **first page** (by Burak Özdil)


Hello dear friends,

The 8 inch (203 mm) M110 self-propelled howitzer is an American-made self-propelled artillery system consisting of an M115 203 mm howitzer installed on a purpose-built chassis. Before its retirement from US service, it was the largest available self-propelled howitzer in the United States Army's inventory; it continues in service with the armed forces of other countries, to which it was exported. Missions include general support, counter-battery fire, and suppression of enemy air defense systems.

This weapon was also included in the Turkish Armed Forces inventory and was actively used. Burak Özdil modeled an M110 used in a Turkish Army. Beautiful model with winter camouflage. This model has only resin kit in 1/72 scale from Armo Model. But it is out of production. Lucky Burak and I bought the last two boxes from Poland. Burak completed this model with a very nice vignette .. I gave the kit to my friend Tahir Özcivan. He is an old modeler who used this weapon in his military service :)

Today I am sharing the construction stages by Burak Özdil.. Good job my friend..
