Old Cannon
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Here's an old cannon for you artillery folks,
I have no idea what it is but I'm sure one of you will ID it. ArmyJunk2, If I recall correctly you mentioned you track cannons.

Hi Folks!

Could that be a Indian 70mm Mountain Gun?
Used on the North West Frontier of India with some going to Iraq during WW I.

A cannon that broke down into six mule loads.
The barrel screwed apart into two loads. That hump on top the barrel just in front of the shield.

Could be set up and firing in less that two minutes.

My guess!

I think Roy means the 2.75" Mountain Gun Mark 1 which it is.....

Cool

PS to Roy - virtually none of the designations in that Kosar book are correct...

The reference I found it in listed it as a 70mm with 2.75" in parenthesis. I just used the mm sense it was listed first.

Don't know about the Mark, my reference doesn't list any Mark numbers.

Hey AJ2,
It's in Iraq. Camp Rustamiyah. Same place as the T72 I posted a while back. You can use the pictures for your list too. Is it rare enough that it might be worth taking to the States??? Looks light enough to pack in a few boxes once taken apart. Just kidding. I remember there was a big stink on the old thread over a 105mm Sherman that some folks thought was stealing. I also spotted some larger guns with 18Pdr stamped on the breech ring. I'm assuming they are 18 pounders. They look about as old with wooden spoked wheels. Pictures to follow eventually. If you need detailed pictures of the British 2.75 I can PM them to you.

Frankly it might be. You might want to contact the Center for Military History. I'm sure they've got folks/an office over there somewhere...
