In the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum ( Aberdeen, MD) there is a 75 mm mortar, that was tested by the U.S. but not adopted. It looks like WWI. It has wheels. It is said to have been able to fire down hill. It is said that the Germans copied it in the "Wurfer 41105 mode". I can mail you a photo if you want it. The museum could not answer my questions. I will appreciate it if you can.
1) When did the U.S. test it and the Germans copy it?
2) How is it that a mortar can fire "downhill"?
3) Can you give me information about "Wurfer 41105 mode"?
4) Do you have pictures of "Wurfer 41105 mode"?
Thank you very much.
