Volksgrenadier Artillery

Something quite different for my late WW2 German forces. Many of the forces raised in late 44/early 45 were equipped with old or obsolete equipment including their artillery. My volksgrenadiers have been given the 75mm FK-16 nA. Originally built as in WW1 as the 77mm FK-16, the surviving guns in German service were rebarreled during the early thirties in the new standard 75mm calibre.

The gun crew are from the Hat/Armourfast German MG/Mortar crews, The guns and limbers come from the HAT WW1 German artillery, and the limber horses and riders are spares from the Revell WW2 German artillery (they provided 6 horse teams).
