Here's a well-preserved, all-matching Type 95 75mm field gun. This is only one of two known in existance in the US! Taken at the Fort Douglas Military Museum in Salt Lake City. They also have a pristine German M40 anti-tank gun.

Second Type 95

The other Type 95 is at the Texas Air Museum in Slaton Texas which is outside Lubbock. Will get pictures this weekend. They also have a German 88mm.

Eric, are these pieces inspection stamped like the rifles and pistols are? Were you able to see what arsenal made the gun?

Nagoya, I didn't look. I did, however, notice the number "118" stamped all over the cannon. Have a look. Can you translated this? Found on top of breach.

Edokko,

Thanks for the translation. Yes, this piece would make a fine front-lawn display! Ha, ha. Can you translate the writing on the barrel of this Type 91 105mm howitzer?

Thanks, Eric
