The trident of the German Field artillery.
s 10.0cm K 18.
The s 10.0cm K 18, actually of 10.5cm caliber, was also one of the ‘18-series’ guns developed in the early-twenties and taken into German Army service in 1934-35. The German Army could not decide which design to approve; the result of it was the combined work of Krupp, who designed the carriage, and Rheinmetall, who designed the gun, the K 18 was the “long-arm” of the German artillery, having a much greater range than any of the other field artillery in general service of the Germany Army. The K 18 could fire a standard 15.14kg (33.38 lbs.) high explosive shell 19,075m – a considerable distance – although the 10.5cm shell was thought to be too underpowered for that range. The K 18 fired a number of different projectiles, including high explosive, armor piercing, and smoke shells. Along with its smaller brother, the 15.0cm sFH 18, the K 18 made up the backbone of the Army’s medium field artillery.
