The Cannone da 70/15 was a mountain gun was used by Italy during World War I. By World War II it had been relegated to the infantry gun role in units assigned to Italian East Africa.

It lacked a modern recoil system and was virtually obsolescent upon its introduction in 1904. But it took the Italians almost a decade to field the Cannone da 65/17 modello 13 as its replacement. It was gradually phased out of the mountain role and transferred to the infantry as an infantry gun.

It was broken-down into four loads for transport.
