Fun history2015-09-29 14:02:17

After the Lugou Bridge Incident in 1937, after the outbreak of the War of Resistance Against Japan , the Chinese army severely hit the rampant arrogance of the Japanese invaders during the Shanghai-August 13th Shanghai-Shanghai Battle . During this battle, an artillery in the left wing of our army had severely damaged the enemy. Therefore, the Japanese invaders also gave this artillery unit a nickname "shen artillery."

The "Shen Pao" position is located near Pudong Yangyu, on the left side of the enemy. It is a concealed artillery position composed of only six German-made "Buffus" large-calibre mountain guns. This artillery position is facing the Japanese headquarters in Hongkou. It can watch the actions of enemy ships on the Huangpu River and its rear troops, and use a submarine wire to set up a secret and good observatory on the other side to command our artillery. Shooting and correction of the deviation of the impact, even at night can accurately shoot. In order to avoid the threat of Japanese military aircraft, this artillery position often used dark nights to strike targets. Daylight is cleverly disguised, hiding in low-lying ditches or deep in bamboo forests. These six "artillery guns" had exerted their greatest power: they severely hit the Japanese Navy's flagship "Izumo" moored on the Huangpu River, and the Japanese headquarters was also bombarded with "artillery guns".

The "Artillery Cannon" was not discovered by the enemy throughout the battle. Even during the most violent battles, our army used various means to protect this artillery array.

During the battle, the "Shenqiang" experienced such a dangerous thing: one day, several journalists from Shanghai came to the battlefield to interview. They were particularly interested in the "Artillery Cannon" and asked for a glimpse of the majesty of the "Artillery Cannon". So in the artillery position hidden in the bamboo forest, the artillery battalion leader took a photo with them. I don't want these reporters to publish the battlefield news they interviewed in the newspaper, and also published this picture. At that time, Zhang Fakui, commander of the Chinese Left Army, realized from the newspaper that he immediately realized the seriousness of the matter. This approach is tantamount to leaking its own military secrets, and the "artillery" is at stake! General Zhang immediately ordered the battalion to quickly move its positions. Unsurprisingly , it was noon that a group of enemy aircraft came in and bombarded all the bamboo forests near Yangyu, and the residents nearby were also affected by the pond fish. The "artillery" escaped. Afterwards, the artillery battalion commander was dismissed, the newspaper was investigated, and journalists were detained.

Zhang Fakui is a general who attaches great importance to the role of artillery. He once recalled that if there were a larger number and larger caliber artillery, I believe it would be more helpful to the battle. He also suggested that the commander-in-chief at that time should construct a temporary road that can transport heavy artillery directly to Pudong from the coast near Zhapu, emulate the use of coasting artillery, and deploy a heavy artillery to be used in Pudong. Unfortunately, due to the lack of artillery in the Chinese army at that time, Zhang The proposal became a dead letter.
