NotesThe 107mm M.1910/30 was a corps gun based on a Schneider design. The Russian army employed 107mm as corps artillery and these were the 107mm M.1910 guns. They were modernised like many others in the late 1920s and brought up to standard. The M.1910/30 had a longer barrel, longer chamber, new separately loaded charge and muzzle brake. They were issued to corps artillery regiments and independent regiments. They were used against the Japanese and the Finns, and over 800 were in service when the Germans invaded in 1941.
