I think this is the Japanese version of Armstrong QF 4.7in naval gun, the Type 41 4.7in naval gun.

Hi.

The captured gun is indeed a Type 92 10 cm cannon.


The second gun could also be a damaged Type Taisho 3 12 cm L/45 or Type Taisho 3 12,7 cm gun L/50 which were quite similar.

Yours

Looks that way to me, the breech is a pretty solid giveaway.

Type 95 75 mm Field Gun.
- different breech (more circular instead of rectangular)
- different recoil mechanism position (behind the breech, not in front of the gun shield)
- different shape of the optics window and closed upper barrel elevation opening in the gun shield

For comparison:

Type 94 75 mm Mountain Gun
