The barrel consists of cylindrického block, which is connected by a screw sleeve with a butt the barrel and screwed made the brakes.

The prototype of this howitzer was subjected to long years in the so-called artillery cupboard of the Schwarzenberg palace. After what was přístěnek handed over the Administration of Prague castle is an artillery collection moved to the courtyard of the Invalides. Currently it is exposed in the VTM in Lešany, so a little bit tucked under the one ace and with its mountainous piece of D10.
