I checked the document again and found that I have misinterpreted part of it. The report only mentioned that six prototypes of "7.5cm two-part barrel gun"(七生的五两节式陆炮) were built by Hanyang Arsenal, and said that they can be moved by pack animals just like mounatin guns. It does not say that they were based on Krupp field gun - another part of the report is devoted to the Krupp field guns being built in Hanyang and I mixed them up.

So I think it is highly possible that this is one of the "7.5cm two-part barrel gun". However the information on it is still, like many other artillery pieces designed and made at Chinese national arsenals in 1910s and early 1920s, extremely scarce.

I recently had a chance to visit the military museum in Bejing and took a bunch of photos while there. However, when I review the pictures found this strange-looking gun. The plate said the gun was a Modified 75mm Type 37 Howitzer but the carriage and gun shield look akin to a QF 6pdr.

Well,it was in Taku Forts,one of the forts on the south.
Image
According to the data,(14 shore guns in that fort.All Krupp guns.Two 24cm L/35,two 21cm L/35,one 21cm L/22,two 15cm L/40,two 15cm L/35,two 15cm L/26 and three 15cm L/19)(Another record which written by Theodor Ritter von Winterhalder said that two 24cm L/35,two 21cm L/35,two 15cm L/40,six unknow 15cm and two 12cm L/20 are in the fort)
So, it might be the 24cm K.L/35 C/80 Küsten.
