The Cannone da 75/32 modello 37 was an Italian field gun used during World War II. (The designation meant that the gun had a 75 mm caliber, the barrel was 32 caliber-lengths long and it was accepted for service in 1937).
The Cannone da 75/32 was designed by Ansaldo and the first examples were produced in 1937.
After Italy surrendered, guns captured by Germany were designated 7.5 cm FK248(i).
