Schneider 105mm mountain gun M1919

Post by YC Chen » 13 Dec 2014 13:59

Hello,

Does anyone have some detailed information on this mountain gun? This type of guns were sold to China before WW2 and two guns are still preserved in my city in excellent condition(see photo). I'm working on an article on them but it seems that no information could be found on the Internet except Wikipedia :? .

Also, The Japanese Type 99 105mm mountain guns were copies of Schneider guns captured in China.

P.S. Just noticed this is my 700th post on this forum! :D

This collection of pamphlets, offered for sale by a German used book dealer, includes a booklet about a very similar weapon. (The collection, alas, is somewhat pricey!)

Here's a page of characteristics, from a catalog published by Schneider in 1917.

(As the date of publication suggests, the weapon described is not the model of 1919, but rather its immediate ancestor.)
