Canon de 76 M(montagne) modele 1909 Schneider

The Canon de 76 M(montagne) modele 1909 Schneider (76mm mle.09) was a mountain gun manufactured by a French company, Schneider[?]. An earlier version, the Schneider-Danglis 06/09 had been designed, in 1906, by a Greek officer (Colonel Danglis[?]), who designed it as a 75mm gun. This gun was used by Greece who, by 1939, had sold many of these guns to Finland. In 1909, the revised 76.2mm gun was produced for Russia; the Russians would refer to this as the Mountain Gun Model 1909 (76-09). In 1941, the Germans captured a number of 76-09s, which they referred to as 7.62cm GebK 293(r). The guns were sometimes equipped with an armoured shield.
