ww2dbaseThe Canon de 105 modèle 1930 Schneider field guns were designed by the French firm Schneider-Creusot (forerunner of the modern-day firm Schneider Electric). Production began in 1930. They were exported to the armies of Greece, Denmark, and Poland; the French Army did not acquire any examples of this design. After the German conquest of Greece and Denmark in WW2, the captured examples were designated 10.5 cm Kanone 310(g) and 10.5 cm Kanone 310(d), respectively.
