thank You for Your reply. I´ve found now a source that confirms the designation Itf. 14 for the limber of the 75mm infantry gun 18: in the booklet "Deutsche leichte und schwere Infanteriegeschütze" by Wolfgang Fleischer.
Hi Bert and Sturm
I have checked a couple of other references, Christoph Awender's KtsN for the Infanteriegeschützkompanie (2 s., 6 l.I.G.)
KStN 171 (1.10.1937) says they are If.14.
Waffen Arsenal 153 Deutsche Infanteriekarren, Heersfeldwagen und Heersschlitten 1900-1945 states they are If.12/1, the author is Wolfgang Fleischer. So if he is calling them by both titles how are we going to sort it out
I find it strange that the more common something is the less information there appears to be on it. All infantry regiments would have had a gun company, most would have been horse drawn. Therefore there would have been hundreds of limbers for the 7.5 cm IG 18 yet we do not clearly know what it was called. There were only a few Tiger tanks in comparision yet the movement of each one is almost known.
