The 155mm "Long Tom" was the backbone of US Artillery during WWII. It could fire a 95 lb. shell a distance of up to 15 miles and was very accurate. Additionally, it could fire at a rate of 40 rounds per hour. The gun could fire high-explosive, armour-piercing, chemical, smoke, and illuminating shells. It was usually mounted on a 10 tired carriage for easy transport. It was also found in self-propelled mounts.
