Response to Re: Number of 75mm guns on Singapore

 

according to this document

http://www.scribd.com/doc/19328204/Report-Weapons-Singapore-Java#scribd

were 75mm guns with split trail, 31 caliber, firing a 5,9 kilo projectile, with a muzzle velocity of 518 m/s and a range of 7950 meters (table on page 47). On the next page they mention a total of 18 pieces found. The number of 11 is mentioned earlier on in the report on page 7 and a bit further down on page 16 the number of 7 x 75mm field gun "for general use in the fortress" are mentioned.

Hope this helps identifying the guns?
