If you have these graphic files, zip them and post them with your request.
Special Notes: Unloading/Loading cost 100.... this was a massive weapon that broke down into 10 tractor loads so any movement should be very slow. Wikipedia has a good article, JAPAN 240mm Howitzer will find it. Pix would not load...too big so I have sent to you Jason by email.
