There are a couple of pictures of trucks with German 10. cm guns in the thread about soft skin vehicles.
Another question. Does anybody have any idea about how many pieces of different guns that China had?
Accroding to a document, the Nationalist had at least 750 different kinds of guns(including 15cm heavy mortars, but other mortars are not included) in 1943. This was before the American equipment flowed in.
I also remember seeing a statistic of artillery for Communist force during WW2 but I can't find it now. I remember there were 200 to 300 guns in 8RA, more than 100 in N4A, including all kinds of mortars.
750 different kind of guns! Ouch what a logistic nightmare!
Are there any kind that was far more common than the others?
