ww2dbaseCanon de 75 M (montagne) modèle 1919 Schneider mountain guns were produced by French armaments firm Schneider-Creusot, forerunner of the modern-day firm Schneider Electric, starting in 1919. They had box trail carriages and could be broken down into seven sections for transportation. They were used by forces of France, Brazil, Greece, Paraguay, Poland, and Yugoslavia. The Paraguayan guns saw action in the 1932-1935 Chaco War. The guns operated by France, Poland, and Yugoslavia saw action in WW2; examples captured in these countries were pressed into German service under the designation 7.5 cm GebK 237(f).
