The Cannone da 75/27 modello 06 was a field gun used by Italy during World War I and World War II. It was a license-built copy of the Krupp Kanone M 1906 gun. Captured weapons were designated by the Wehrmacht as the 7.5 cm Feldkanone 237(i). Special fortress versions were produced as the Cannone da 75/27 modello 06 in Casmatta and in Caverna. These had different carriages suitable for static use.

Many guns were modernized for tractor-towing with pressed-steel wheels and rubber rims. These weighed some convert|65|kg|lb more than the original version with spoked wooden wheels.

The Cannone da 75/27 modello 12 was a modello 06 modified for greater elevation (-12° to +18° 30') and lighter weight (only convert|900|kg|lb). Only small numbers seem to have been produced. The Germans designated captured guns as the 7.5 cm Feldkanone 245(i).

Both references listed below credit these guns with over convert|10000|m|yd range, but this seems highly unlikely given the limited elevation of both the modello 06 and modello 12.
