The Krupp C64 (sometimes C/64) steel, breech loaded field gun (8cm caliber, 4 pound projectile, 3800m range) was one of the main artillery pieces of the Prussians in the 1870-1871 war with France. It was superior to the French counterparts in every way: accuracy, rate of fire, range and reliability of the fuse. The C64 was the sole gun of the horse artillery units. Each unit comprised three batteries, each battery was equipped with six C64 guns, for a total of eighteen guns per unit. The foot artillery units had an equal mixture of C64 and the heavier C67 (six pounder gun).

  • Die preußische 4-Pfünder-Feldkanone C/64 war ein Ergänzungsmodell zur 6-Pfünder-Feldkanone C/61. Kurz nachdem der 6-Pfünder eingeführt worden war, begann man mit den Entwicklungsarbeiten an einem leichteren Geschütz, welches eine höhere Mobilität besitzen sollte. Der 4-Pfünder war in allen Bestandteilen eine komplette Neukonstruktion. Der 4-Pfünder hatte ein Kaliber von 7,85 cm. Die korrekte Bezeichnung für dieses Geschütz lautete: gezogener Gussstahl 4-Pfünder oder im militärischen Schriftverkehr: gezog. Gussstahl 4pfdr. Der Zusatz C/64 als Klassifizierungsmerkmal wurde erst mit der Einführung weiterer Modelle hinzugefügt. 1871 wurde im Rahmen einer Neuorganisation die Typenbezeichnung in „8 cm Stahlkanone C/64“ geändert.

  • Il cannone Krupp 4-Pfünder-Feldkanone C/64 (cannone da campagna da 4 libbre o anche C/64) equipaggiò diffusamente l'esercito prussiano durante la guerra franco-prussiana. Si trattava di uno dei primi cannoni da campagna, in acciaio a retrocarica e con canna rigata (80 mm di calibro, proietto da 4,3 kg, gittata massima 3800 m) . Si rivelò superiore sotto ogni aspetto alle controparti francesi in bronzo ad avancarica, anche per l'efficienza delle spolette. Il C64 era l'unico pezzo assegnato alle compagnie d'artiglieria a cavallo. Ogni unità era composta da tre batterie, ogni batteria era formata da sei cannoni C64, per complessivi 18 pezzi. Le compagnie di artiglieria a piedi erano dotate di un eguale numero di C64 e di C67. (it)
