General information on the QF 12lb 1200 MK IV
 

The QF 12 pounder 12 cwt gun was a common, versatile 3-inch (76 mm) caliber naval gun introduced in 1894 and used until the middle of the 20th century.

 It was produced by Armstrong Whitworth, Elswick and used on Royal Navy warships, and exported to allied countries.

In British service, "12 pounder" was a rounded reference to the projectile weight and "12 cwt" referred to the weight of the barrel and breech: 12hundredweight = 12 x 112 pounds = 1344 Pounds, to differentiate it from other "12 pounder" 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.
