German Field Artillery 7,7cm Limber

Below: A drawing of the 7,7cm l.F.K. Limber which is for the l.F.K. 1896 n/A, and the l.F.K. 1916. This 7,7cm lFK Limber is simular to the 10,5cm lFH Limber except for the horizontal staking of the ammunition in the 7,7cm Limber verses the vertical stacking of the ammunition in the limber for the 10,5cm lFH, differences in the foot board mount, and the size of the limber box

Below: 7,7cm Limber frame, which is much the same as the 10,5cm Limber frame. The foot board appears to be the only difference

Below: Comparison drawing illustrating the differences between the 10,5cm lFH Limber (in Black)

and the 7,7cm lFK Limber (in Red)
