The Canon Court de 105 M(montagne) modèle 1919 Schneider (105 mm mle.19) was a French mountain gun intended to be used in conjunction with the 75 mm mle.19. The mle.19 was manufactured by Schneider. For transport, this gun could be broken down into 8 sections; the barrel could be dismantled into 2 sections. These were also used by Yugoslavia and Germany (the latter referring to them as 10.5 cm le.GebH 322(f) and 10.5 cm le.GebH 329(j)). The crew was protected by an armoured shield. This gun was used also by the Hellenic (Greek) Army in Ipirus (Pindos mountains) in the Greek-Italian war from October 1940 - Spring 1941 .It was used in conjunction with the 75 mm mle.19 of 7,5 cm caliber as they called it. A variant was later made, this being the Canon Court de 105 M(montagne) modèle 1928 Schneider, which the Germans referred to as a 10.5 cm le.GebH 323(f).
