M-50 on M4

Israeli M-50 155 mm self-propelled howitzer on M4 Sherman chassis in Yad la-Shiryon Museum, Israel.

he M-50 was an open structured self-propelled artillery piece, mounting a single French Model 50 155 mm howitzer at the back of the hull, which was based on the "long" hull of M4A4 fitted with Continental engine (late production vehicles possibly used "short" hulls from other variants). The gun was developed in early 1960s by Israeli Ordnance Corps in cooperation with France. Probably about 120 units were produced. In early 1970s M-50s were fitted with HVSS and Cummins diesel engines. Was used in the War of Attrition and the Yom Kippur War. Some reserve units were armed with the M-50 at least until late 1970s.
