ww2dbaseThe Type 14 10 cm single-barrel anti-aircraft guns were placed into production in 1925, but due to cost concerns, only 70 were built. During WW2, all Type 14 guns that were still in service were assigned to the Japanese Army 4th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Division based at Kyushu, Japan; most of them were deployed at the Yawata Steel Works in the city of Kitakyushu in northern Kyushu.
