The New Krapp Field Guns. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 4 November 1874
The New Kxnpp Field Gnus. The result of the trials made with these guns, constructed for the German field artillery' has been every' way satisfac tory. The new gnns, besides having a larger charge of powder than has hitherto been employed by any nation, carry .a long grenade with a very strong explo sive mixture, so that when fired it bursts, into two and. a half as many fragments as any ordinary ones. Tho new guns are also provided with iron gun-car riages, and their total weight, even in the case of the heavier calibres, is not so great as tbat of the present eight-centi metre gnn. The firm of Krupp has engaged to provide a sufficient quantity of these guns to equip the whole of the Grerman field artillery with the necessary reserve by next spring.
