Vehicles equipped with this weapon
A large calibre weapon mounted on an aircraft, the 75 mm can deliver a good amount of fire onto target if the plane is flown right for the weapon system to be utilised. The user must be experienced in its usage as its mount design on an aircraft as well as its rather slow rate of fire mean that a user will have one, or maybe two, shot onto target before the plane passes over.
