The Japanese wanted a new field gun which could be issued to infantry and cavalry formations, up to then the type 38 and type 41 were issued in these roles and the IJA wanted one gun to field both infantry and cavalry artillery regiments. Thus was designed with spoked wheels for horse traction and rubber wheels for motorised towing. The gun was not a success and was built in small numbers.
