General info

While it is a cannon from 1914, it may seem weird that it comes with HESH. In reality, it's a flawed HEAT charge that has a poor fuze that would bend & mold the soft metal without fuzing and directly detonate the explosive matter the moment it impacts the target, acting as HESH without the chemical effect.

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />.

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
