|Notes||The M1 gun shared a similar carriage to the M1 240mm howitzer and was introduced in the same year but not standardized until early 1944. The M1 gun had a greater range than the M1 240mm howitzer but suffered from excess barrel erosion. The first guns were sent to Italy and used in the counter battery role. It also served in Northern Europe and the in the Philippines.|
