On the eve of World War II, a 25-liter (87.6 mm) cannon was put into service. During the war, this cannon was the "backbone" of British artillery.
During Operation Samaria, in the winter of 1956, these cannons were used in direct formation against the Qalqilya police.
The most impressive operational activity of the 25-liter cannons was during the Six Day War. It assisted the armored and infantry forces in the conquest of the Umm-Katf and Abu Agila complexes.
The removal of the guns from the IDF order began gradually, beginning in 1965 and ending after Operation Karama in 1968.
