The type 90 was designed to replace the type 38 as the standard field gun. It had some similarities to a Schneider design made for export and proved too complexed and expensive to produce in large numbers. It came with two different sets of wheels for animal traction and motorised towing. It was produced in large enough numbers to replace either the standard type 38 or the improved type 38 but it saw action against the Soviets and the Americans and served until 1945.
