ww2dbaseThe 7.5 cm Feldkanone (FK) 38 were designed by the German armament firm Krupp and they were adopted by the German Army in 1939. 80 guns were produced for the German Army, and 64 were built for export to the Brazilian Army. They were longer than the earlier 7.5 cm FK 18 field guns for a better range, but instead of replacing, 7.5 cm FK 38 guns served alongside of 7.5 cm FK 18 guns.
