The 10.5 cm howitzer Model 1924 was a howitzer used by the Netherlands during World War II. Fourteen were bought by the Royal Dutch East Indies Army, where they equipped the 1st Howitzer Artillery Battalion from 1924 to 1925. It is unknown if the Japanese used them after conquering the Dutch East Indies in 1942.

This weapon was designed for motor traction with rubber-rimmed steel wheels. Maximum towing speed was only 30 km/h (18.6 mph). It had a firing platform that gave it 360° traverse. On mount traverse was only 8° 30'.
