The Bethlehem Steel 37mm cannon is an epic piece of military history. It was made in 1916 and 1917 right here in the United States by the Bethlehem Steel Company for the French Government.

The U.S. Army only allowed 15 to ship out of 200 ordered.  These automatic cannons were made for World War One but are thought to have never seen service.

With automatic shell extraction and a range cam sight, these cannons had tons of additions. If you can believe it, this cannon was meant to be fired directly from the shoulder.
