This is the same type of 105mm howitzer that was used in South Vietnam by the US Army as well as the Australian Royal Artillery.  I believe the only difference between the M1A2 used in World War 2 and Vietnam is an improved barrel.  The Italeri kit of this kit is available and makes a very attractive model of the real thing.

I have been told that the difference between an M2A1 and M2A2 is that the M2A2 has a thickening of the end of the barrel, to take account of barrel wear and tear at that point.
