From the Vault: Ogorkiewicz on self propelled artillery

Today we present an article from the 1951 Nov-Dec issue of ARMOR by Richard Ogorkiewicz on developments and trends in self propelled guns.  The article notes that this is not the first article for ARMOR that Mr. Ogorkiewicz has written, although it does qualify as one of the earlier pieces in a career which stretches all the way to the current day.  While we tend to think of indirect fire weapons when self propelled guns are mentioned these days, this article includes direct fire “assault guns” as well as self propelled anti-tank guns.  These categories of vehicles have fallen out of favor in modern times, but were still considered a viable vehicle type when this article was authored in 1951.
