Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice brass construction Japanese World War II cased artillery sight, commonly used on the Japanese Type 92 70mm Battalion Gun and others. The main portion of sight is present and looks to be functional, but we have no way of verifying this. It has a data plate marked with Japanese writing and serial number 1022. The wooden case measures about 7" X 6" X 5", and is in good condition, with faded Japanese markings on the outside. We can see from the various slots in the case that there are some accessories missing from the sight.

A very nice piece of Japanese WWII Militaria, ready to display!

The Type 92 battalion gun (九二式歩兵砲, Kyūni-shiki Hoheihō) was a 70mm light howitzer used by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II. The Type 92 designation was for the year the gun was accepted, 2592 in the Japanese imperial year calendar, or 1932 in the Gregorian calendar. Each infantry battalion included two Type 92 guns; therefore, the Type 92 was referred to as "battalion artillery" (大隊砲, Daitaihō).
