The “Affût-Truck” Saint Chamond Mod. 1914 305mm Gun


This gun was built by the Compagnie des forges et aciéries de la marine et d’Homécourt (Company of marine forges and steelworks and of Homécourt), which was a French industrial enterprise that made iron and steel products for the French navy, army and railroads. It is better known as Saint-Chamond because of its main location in Saint-Chamond, Loire.

During World War I (1914-1918) the company built several different types of weapons, notably the Saint Chamond-Mondragón 75 mm gun which had been designed mostly by colonel Rimailho, the Saint-Chamond tank and the Chauchat machine rifle. They also produced guns, such as this 305mm one.
