About the sFH 18 Howitzer
Artillery is often termed “The King of the Battlefield”, and this was no less true in WWII. Germany’s 15cm sFH 18 (sFH stands for schwere Feld Haubitze or “Heavy Field Howitzer”) was the standard heavy howitzer throughout the war. Nicknamed Immergru"n (“Evergreen”), it was based on the sFH 13 of WWI vintage. Widely used by the Army, the 5.5-ton weapon was also employed by the Navy in coastal defense positions. A total of 7,400 howitzers were manufactured through to the end of the war, each capable of hurling a 15cm shell out to a maximum range of 13km. The sFH 18 also happened to be the world’s first artillery system to make use of a rocket-assisted projectile (RAP).
