Shells from the Type 11 are visible mid-flight

Description

The 37 mm Type 11 is a medium-calibre infantry gun adopted for naval use, one of the first slow-firing Japanese weapons that the player will use while going through the research tree. Its effectiveness is average at best, however its explosive power is capable of piercing through nearly anything it might encounter.

Vehicles equipped with this weapon

General info

Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the cannon or machine gun.

Available ammunition

The gun comes with only one type of shell: high-explosive fragmentation.

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns that have firepower equal to this weapon.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against notable opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Effective against small, cramped vessels
  • Very high maximum range for its battle rating
  • High firing angle makes it possible to shoot while from behind a complete cover

Cons:

  • Low muzzle velocity makes it difficult to lead targets
  • Comparatively low damage against higher tier targets

History

Type 11 37 mm (37mm狙撃砲, 37mm sniper) was designed as an infantry gun with the objective of destroying enemy machine gun emplacements. Serial production began in 1918 and the gun saw a number of improvements and evolutions over the years, including pattern 22 (十一年式平射歩兵砲, 11th year model low trajectory infantry gun) until it was finally replaced in 1934 by the Type 94 of the same calibre. The weapon was originally derived from the French Canon d'Infanterie de 37 modèle 1916 TRP.

The gun saw wide use in Japanese forces, from being an infantry support gun, through use in tanks (eg. Chi-Ro), to the first Japanese armoured boat (with subsequent designs using the 57 mm Type 97 cannon instead). While the gun was up to the task during the Second Sino-Japanese War, it was severely lacking by the time of the Pacific War and unable to penetrate >30 mm armour on allied armoured vehicles even from as close a distance as 50 meters.

The weapon featured a wide range of ammunition, including various types of high-explosive rounds with different fillers, armour-piercing, anti-concrete rounds, and of course training rounds.

Media

An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
