The Type 41 75 mm Cavalry Gun was a Japanese field gun first accepted into service in 1908. Type 41 designation was given to this gun as it was accepted in the 41st year of Emperor Meiji's reign (1908). It was slightly lightened version of the Type 38 75 mm Field Gun that was based on a 1905 Krupp design. It was the primary weapon of artillery units attached to cavalry formations. Although effectively obsolete by the start of World War II it was used in limited numbers despite nominally being replaced by the Type 95 75 mm Field Gun.
