Hi, I have been trying to gather data on the Norwegian 6.5cm Bergkanon m/1897, this what I have up to now;

6.5cm Bergkanon m/1897
Design: Finspong
Type: Light Mountain Gun
Amount:
Year: 1887
Calibre: 65mm L/18
Weight: 95 kg
Elevation: -° to +°
Traverse: °
Shell Weight: 6.5 kg
Muzzle Velocity: 350 m/s
Rate of Fire: r.p.m.
Maximum Range: 3.000m

As you can see I need the amount in service in 1940, elevation/traverse, rate of fire and crew.
Can anyone please help; I have tried the various Norwegian sites, but no luck.

Regards Ian.

Dear Colleague YAN,
I think you described this weapon. The Norwegian Internet figures this photo and a brief description of the use for WWII.

Photographs with text in Norwegian:
Generalmajor Engelbrecht sjef Infanteridivisjon 163 (med høy lue) og Oberst Adloch sjef IR 236 (med båtlue bøyd over kanonen) studerer en norsk 65 mm norsk bergkanon.

Simplified translation:
Major-General Engelbrecht (ID 163) and Colonel Adloch (IR 236) view the captured Norwegian 65mm gun mountain gun.
