It fires a heavier shell than the French 75mm or German 77mm, and is accurate, reliable, and has good range. Combined with the well-trained crews of the Royal Artillery, the 18-pounder can out-shoot any foe.

Mobile for its size, the 18 pdr was often used by forward detachments. The Royal Artillery are learning to operate in small units attached to the front-line infantry to help deal with German tanks or offer direct fire to knock out enemy gun emplacements.
