Yes, this gun was designed in 1896 for the Navy by Miguel García Lomas, a Navy artillery captain. It was part of a project for guns of 42mm, 57mm and 100mm for the Navy, but only the 100mm model was built. Four of them were
briefly mounted on the cruiser Carlos V, but the Navy quickly lost interest in this gun, and transferred all of them to the Army for coastal defence.

That is the one. As additional information the only coast defense battery, equipped with this gun, which seems to have been emplaced prior to the Spanish Civil War was a 4 gun casemated battery in Fort San Felipe at el Ferrol. My understanding is that this battery covered the minefied.

Hello to all :D; speaking about artillery..............................

15cm sFH18 howitzers in Spain.

For the images seems that to Spain were to send howitzers of the horse-drawn version, equipped with wheels without tires and transported in two separate loads using the corresponding limbers.
