Turkish 75mm field gun

Post by emir pasha » 04 Jan 2006 19:04

Hello,

Can someone clear me about the technical details of Turkish Krupp 75 mm QF model 1903/5 field gun ? I learned that it was a commercialised version of german 7.7 cm standart gun. What were the construction differences between them ? any detail photographs or drawings are very welcome.

cheers
