Response to Re: Talking bout 3-inch [landing] guns

 

Thanks, so a grand total of 36-40 of these guns may have been purchased by the NPC, that's interesting. There are several documents about Dutch purchasers looking for 75mm field guns, but these landing guns I reckon were 76,2 mm. The KNIL arsenal in Bandoeng produced ammo for the 75mm Krupp guns. I guess the former US Marines' guns came with their stockpile of ammo as well... It must have been a substantial order (especially if highspeeded) and no doubt documented...I'll check if I can find any leads in my files.

Another question. Wasnt there another type of US landing gun with the recuperator mounted on top of the barrel (a De Bange invention if I recall?). That was a very modern looking gun for the time and preceding Rheinmetall designs of the 1920s.
