M-41 155mm Howitzer Motor Carriage

The M-41 155mm Howitzer Motor Carriage was based on the M-24 Chaffee Light Tank fitted with an M1 155mm Howitzer. The chassis was also used for the M-19 40mm anti-aircraft gun carriage. In addition to the howitzer, the M-41 carried 22 rounds of 155mm ammunition.

The M41 was originally powered with two Cadillac 110 HP engines but was underpowered. In Korea, Ordnance installed two Cadillac 150 HP engines, an upgrade that was judged a considerable improvement.

The manufacturer was Massey-Harris Tank Division of Racine, WI.
