The major difference between the two designs was the Type 97's lack of the recoil mechanism found on the Type 94. It retained the same 90mm caliber, fired the same shell stocks and was ranged out to 3,800-4,000 meters as in the original. About 600 examples of the simplified Type 97 were reportedly produced and went on to see combat service with the Japanese Army in World War 2.
