notes"The M-71 Israeli 155mm Towed Howitzer is an improved model of the M-68. It differs from the M-68 in having a longer 39-caliber barrel with associated improved range. The M-71 also has a compressed air rammer that increases loading speed, especially at elevation. The M-71 was produced in larger numbers than the M-68."

notes"The M-68 is the baseline production model and was the first towed howitzer to be produced in Israel. The M-68 combines the Tampella designed split trail chassis with the indigenous 155mm 33-caliber ordnance. The M-68 can be identified by the limited space between the muzzle brake and fume extractor."
