Both fired and unfired rounds of the larger type 94 Howitzer (Mountain gun) were also found at Iorabawa Ridge (the furthest point of the Japanese advance)

Notice the shorter round for the 92 gun standing in the forground

Considering the Type 94 weighed a total of 500kg, It was amazing that they managed to get it so far.
