Post by jopaerya » 28 May 2007 20:56

Hello All

I have some problem with this gun , who knows witch type or factory ?
As you can see 2 foto's from the Dutch Army ( trials ? ) one from the Swiss
Army and the last according the photo from the French Army in North-Africa .

Dutch photo's = W.W.W. Grebbeberg
Swiss photo = Magazine 1939/45
French photo = Axis Forum

Think it's a Schneider 1936, the Skoda version (well all Dutch sources so far state these guns are Skoda).

Thanks Gentleman

The eliberate retriever system on the 7.5 cm looks a little
bit like the Canon de 90 mm de D.C.A. Mle 1926 , so I
would also go for the Schneider but this is speculation .
Who knows this gun or has seen this more information .

Thanks Stril

You get the flowers this time , same gun but on the last 2 photo
the muzzle break is a little different , based on this I would go for the
Canon de 7.5 cm D.C.A. Mle 1938 ( Schneider-Creusot ) .

You can find six photos here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Categ ... aft_cannon
All of them are of Swiss origin and have multi-slot muzzle brakes but the one on Dutch photos provided by topic starter here and in http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 5#p1223643 has a single-baffle positive muzzle brake.
With best regards, Ilya.

Nice image Jopaerya

When were these multi-slot muzzle brakes introduced by the Swiss? During World War II or in the postwar period?

Hi all,

I found this image on a Polish forum webpage. Sorry, I dond`t remember the exact source
I think is very similar to 75mm Schneider-Creusot Mle 1938 but...Where are the typical "horns" ?? :?

It is possible that this gun was evaluated by the Polish Army ??

Hello Sturm78

Maybe the typical "horns" are behind the instruments ?? Strange is also the Dutch version has the instruments on the other side .

Hi Jopaerya,

Well, it is very possible that you are right but it is rare the change of side of the instruments.... :roll:

Hi Jos,

I believe that unless the Dutchman is a Dutchwoman the gun should be mirrored like this:
