Response to American Armament Corporation
Hi Hans, thanks for that. Solves a couple of questions!
Do you know how those 40 guns were used in 1941? Were they all placed on vessels? I noticed many NEI bases and harbours in 1942 had several 3,7cm guns in their defences.
KNIL authors never explained them, or if they did, suggested these were the old 19th century bronze guns (this fitted of course in the myth that the NEI forces were ill-equipped).
I am now tempted to assume taht (some of) these may actually have been the quite modern automatic AAC guns?
