Canon de 75 modele 1934

The Canon de 75 modele 1934 was a mountain gun used by Belgium during World War II. The design featured pneumatic wheels. During transport, the box trail could be folded or the gun could be broken into 5 loads. After 1940, the Wehrmacht designated this as the 7.5cm GebK 228(b), although it's uncertain if the Germans actually used them.
