RobL Posted 6 October , 2013 Share Posted 6 October , 2013 One of the excellent speakers at the WFA conference yesterday mentioned that pre-war, the British Army had wanted a replacement for the 18 pounder field gun, something more like the French 75mm gun - I wasn't aware of this before, has anyone heard of this? Especially interested as to what the 75mm had that the 18 pounder didn't, as the 18 pounder was introduced six years after the 'Soixante-Quinze' i'd have thought the 18 pounder the better gun, even if just by a narrow margin as being more modern Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
