i could have sworn this wasn't used in the desert, i guess you are adding this to balance out the Tiger?

That was used in Africa
It is a 25 pounder body with a 17 pounder gun

I actually proposed this in the forum of CoH: Afrika :D. It is historically accurate, especially this rare early production variant mounted on a 25-pounder carriage. Truth is that even though the first Tiger in North Africa was knocked out by 6 pounders, the fear of swarms of Tiger I's making it to Africa was great enough that the British sent 17 pounders to North Africa. However the 17 pounders' own carriages were somewhat unavailable, so instead they mounted them on 25pdr field gun carriages. This modification was known as the 17/25 pounder but was also known sometimes as the 'Pheasant'. It was indeed rare since around 120 of these were sent to North Africa and afterwards actual 17 pounder carriages were made available. Hope this cleared some doubt off the minds.

No problem :D this new model is a beauty and I actually like it more than the actual 17 pdr carriage variant :D has this even been done before in a CoH mod?

Ah, it's good to see asurekra textuing again, this time for CoH! Great texture, btw. Althogh I've never seen the 17 pdr mounted in such a way.
