In 1811, Friedrich Krupp founded his cast-steel factory Gusstahlfabrik, but it was his son, Alfred Krupp, who attained notable success. In 1856, Fried. Krupp A.G., produced a 9cm muzzle-loading rifled gun of cast steel, which gave such good results that Prussia adopted steel for making army guns, and Prussia being the first country to do so.
The Krupp guns were purchased by the Russian, Austrian, and the Ottoman Empire armies during the 1860s. By the 1870s, their small arms were being purchased by countries all over the world. Naval guns were also rapidly developed; from 1863, guns were being manufactured for several navies, including the Austro-Hungarian Navy, Ottoman Empire and Russia.
By the 1880s, Krupp had developed an 88mm naval gun and adopted 75mm as the caliber for the army's field and mountain guns. I
The principal characteristic of Krupp guns is that they are made of steel. Alfred Krupp was introduced to the Bessemer process to mass-produce steel by his London agent and friend, Alfred Longsdon, in 1859-60. After a lengthy period of trial and error, this steel was developed to such quality that the royal factory of Woolwich in England acquired steel from Krupp to manufacture guns that conformed to British naval ordnances. Also, Krupp was one of the first manufacturers to design practical breech loading guns for army use.
Initially, Krupp developed a breech loading system with a wedge breech block, but, because of problems with escape of gas, it continued to manufacture muzzle-loading guns until the adoption of the Broadwell ring allowed the problem to be solved. By this means, they developed the best breech loading guns of the time, assisted by Longsdon's patented designs. Initially, Krupp only sold its breech loading guns to Prussia, but, from 1888, it began exporting all over the world. Breech closure was achieved by a steel wedge that slid transversely on a short groove at the rear part of the gun. The movement was imparted by a screw mechanism and the gas-check by the Broadwell ring system.
Krupp also copied the Blakely system to manufacture banded guns.

From about 1880, the Japanese wanted to produce artillery by themselves. Under the guidance of the Italian, IJA designed new 75mm guns. They had a bronze barrel, because the steel was expensive in Japan of those days. 7cm guns were used as the main artillery during the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-5, and also used by the second line during the Russo-Japanese War.
