Hi all,

I I found this image of what I believe is the prototype of the 75mm Schneider-Trubia M1906 gun modernized with a split carriage.
Can anyone confirm this? Does anyone know the new range of the piece with this type of gun carriage that allowed a higher elevation of the barrel ??

These are Cañon de Hierro Entubado 15 cm. Cc. Modelo 1885 ORDONEZ. There were several batteries of these in Spains North African possessions.

In 1936 there was still quite a number of the Cañón HE 15cm Ordóñez Mod. 1885 in service. More specifically, in the "North" they were 4 guns taken from Bilbao that were later mounted at Cabo Machichaco and 10 guns defending San Sebastian.

Yes I agree. I did not say they were only in the north African possesions. Several of them in the south, as the fort at Tarifa on the straits of Gibraltar, fired their last practice shots as late as 1946. They were obsolete prior to the SCW, but as with many old weapons, were kept in service as nothing else was available.

the guns full nomenclature was" CAÑÓN DE ACERO DE COSTA de 10 cm. MODELO 1914" and was apparently originally designed as a naval weapon before being adopted as a coastal defense weapon. In the same defense area of Catalan were 2 more 3 gun batteries. According to the official History of the Spanish Coast Artillery there were 28 guns in service between 1946 and the late1950s. The pictured battery Phare de Rosas was built in 1946 and was also disarmed in the late 50s. I apologize for forgetting where I got the drawing of the piece.
