8 cm FK M. 5

Index 8 cm FK M. 5

The 8 cm Feldkanone M 05 was a field gun used by Austria-Hungary during World War I. It was a conventional design, with its most notable feature being its obsolescent autofrettaged bronze (so-called steel-bronze) barrel, necessary because Austria-Hungary still had trouble making steel of the proper quality.
