French 75mm Field Gun Details
 
The French 75mm gun was perhaps the world's best known and most respected field gun at the start of the First World War.
 
This was the French Army’s main artillery gun during World War I. It was introduced in 1897 and was the first fully integrated quick-firing gun. It also had an innovative recoil system that made for a smoother operation.
 
When the US became involved in World War I, space on ships was limited and manpower had priority over heavy equipment, so American troops often used French heavy equipment, including this 75mm field gun.
 
After World War I, it was upgraded with pneumatic tires and improved ammunition and was still the French Army’s main artillery gun until the 1940s. France also exported this gun to many other counties in the 1930s and it was used in 1941 in World War II against the Japanese in the Philippines and in North Africa against the Germans.

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.
