WW1 self-propelled howitzers, Italian 305mm vs French 220, aka Loony Toons shit vs sound design.

That’s literally the dumbest piece of shit.

I dunno, kinda like an attempt at making a field gun out of a heavy howitzer. When on a normal mount to be moved it required 5 tractors towing separate loads.

Why exactly they chose a giant fucking rocking horse to mount it on though, I have no idea.
