76mm guns sound like tanks being used in fire support rather than arty.
US arty units had dropped the 75 midway through WWII with the exception
of special purpose weapons (e.g. airborne) like the Pack 75 howitzer.
Thanks for the info. I assume then that the 76mm was a gun with a
relatively high velocity as it sounded like a tank?
They were still firing the 75s at Sill when I went thru officer
orientation in '61, so I assumed they were used in Korea.
They said they were trying to use up the ammo.
