Banzai – Imperial Japanese Forces in the Pacific
Type 41 75mm Infantry Gun (JP565) The Type 41 did however feature an interrupted thread breechblock which provided an immediate way of differentiating between the two weapons upon inspection.

Due to its lighter weight, the Type 41 could be man-handled on the battlefield by its crew or broken down into several parts and transported by horses. Capable of firing a high explosive (HE) round up to rangers close to 8000 yards; the Type 41 was not a common on the battlefield as its counterpart the Type 38.

Gun Shields
Manning a gun in the thick of battle is a hazardous job. To offset the increased vulnerability of gun crews to enemy fire, many guns have a bulletproof gun shield.


Gun Shields provide your Gun teams with Bulletproof Cover from shots fired from in front of a line drawn across the front of the team’s base. Shots fired from behind this line hit the unprotected crew behind the shield.

Gun Shields do not provide cover to teams moving At the Double, nor from artillery bombardments.

The Type 41 75mm regimental gun is easy to man-handle, making it an ideal infantry support weapon. It was originally designed as a mountain gun, so could be broken down into several loads. It has found new life supporting the infantry regiments with short intense barrages of high-explosive rounds bring death and destruction to the enemy.
