Rare Italian mod. 1912 in Lonate Pozzolo. As far as I know this lighter version (compared to mod. 1906) was intended for cavalery

Here's something interesting, related to an Argentinian Krupp artillery piece: Works on an underground line had to be stopped in Buenos Aires because live ammunition of a Krupp cannon was found buried on the ground. It's a mistery (yet) how this piece still active was prsent there.

I can send photos of this amazing (Salesaman Sample Size model, if someone could reply to my email at shgo1961@telus.net. I am located in Edmonton, Alberta Canada my name is Scott

Hi

 

For the almost cylindrical aspect is very likely to be a Krupp cannon projectile 75mm L30 Mod. Argentino 1909, Shrapnel type, so it must be much older than the 60 years that they have calculated

 

Compare this with the lamina of 1909 Krupp Handbook

 

Steel body has a diameter of 74,2mm and the sealing ring has a diameter of 76,9mm

Its height is 261,6mm.

Its load balls make it very dangerous because it is an antipersonnel design.

 

Regards

 

 

Eduardo

As noted in another thread there isn't any single source of information on these guns.

Rather than try to accumulate all the information on these guns and probably get it wrong in various ways I thought we could try a colaborative

project. If you know anything about the 75mm Krupp guns please contribute - anything will help - images, refs, etc.

Once we have a reasonable amount of info I'll wrangle it into an article for Landships II.


 

An impressive mass of information and images have been compiled in this thread, so I am waiting for the article with lots of anticipation. smile

And a pony. Can I have a pony too pretty please.

I did say that didn't I....

It's a bit like the guy who put a sign outside his house asking for free soil  - then coming home to find a hill of soil obscuring his house.

I really should get on with it - how hard can it be anyway... 

Regards,

Charlie

I have gotten the breech mechanism working on the Krupp export 7,5cm Kanone dated 1881.  The ready round mount and the rammer mount are now riveted to the carriage.  The elevation mechanism is in the machine shop and should be complete in a few weeks.  The wheels are still wrong.  They are US 16 spoke Archibalds.  I will replace them with correct German 12 spoke wheels shortly.  The gun is also now painted in a more correct variation of Prussian/German pre-WW1 light blueish grey.  This is the link:

I hope you enjoy the photos.  If you have any information as to the nation this was exported to, I am interested in hearing what you have.
