I need info about 37/70mm Skoda gun

Post by Sturm78 » 30 Apr 2009 20:45

Hi all,

Have anyone any information about Skoda 37-70mm BA/AB 1 infantry gun?
The only information that I could find is that the design is from 1930 and was possibly used by Chinese, Bulgarian(37mm) and Latvian (70mm) armies. This weapon was rejected by the Czech Army. See http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 1&t=105386
Specifications and more information or more photos will be welcomed.

Hi all,

I found in my computer another photo of a Skoda 37-70mm hybrid gun, but with a totally different carriage. :?
Anyone have more information?

According to this page: http://www.brigadyr.net/muzea/vojenske_ ... lesany.htm there is a 3,7/7 cm pěchotní kanón BA1/AB1 in the Military Technical Museum Lešany near Prague: http://www.vhu.cz/en/stranka/vojenske-technicke-muzeum/
Mabye they have the information you are seeking.

Sturm, you did not find that picture in your computer but on the Overvalwagen Forum :) . To be precise here:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/330333/t ... +artillery
That picture with the Dutch subtitles is scanned from a Dutch journal and depicts a 32mm/70mm, not the 37mm!

Hi Nuyt:

You are right. I did not remember the source of my last photo. I am sorry. :oops:
