Hello everybody,
Does anyone have more information and a photo of the full view of this interesting Swedish cannon? I think its development began even before the end of the Second World War. Thanks.

- 75/20 ??? I have no news, never seen neither photographs nor drawings ...... probably does not exist
Hi, shultz!
I managed to find a photo of the cannon signed as 75/20.
I think this Ansaldo prototype is the same as 75/36.
Best regards!

Well Karlik,
I remembered which magazine it was and found it in my archive.......

and yes, even Pignato and Cappellano sometimes make mistakes in identifying the photographs ....
