LG1 C1 105mm Howitzer

The LG1 C1 105mm Howitzer was adopted for use by light infantry battalions in the late 1990s. Known as the LG1 C1, or also as the LG1 Mark II, this gun was produced by Giat Industries of France. The first guns were delivered in 1996 and deployed directly to Bosnia with fielding completed by Nov 1997.

The LG1 howitzer featured low weight and a high level of accuracy over long distance. However, the lightweight construction gave the barrel a relatively short lifespan. The vehicles could fire out to 18,000 metres.
