Just rediscovered Dal McGuitk’s “Rommel’s Army in Afrika”

He says that the last unit sent to Rommel in 1941 was “Army artillery command 104” - a regt of siege artilley to help weaken Tobruk.

Anyone know what they had?

Depends if there are mountains near Tobruk that need howitzering...

Compared to the rest yes, but I still would not like to be on the receiving end of even "measly" 75's

All those French 155's though - might be worth getting some models. Plus it's interesting that the oh-so-mobile Afrika Korps had a siege train!
