The 76mm gun is a composite of the 3-inch gun tube, and the 75mm tank gun breech ring and mechanism. Characteristics which govern the design of shell are much the same as for the 3-inch gun (the base diameter of the 76-mm gun is actually 763.2mm, or 3 inches), and corresponding rounds for the two guns use the same shells. However, the complete rounds are not interchangeable, since the chamber of the 76-mm gun is smaller and requires a shorter cartridge case as well as a different weight of propelling powder.
