FK96 IRL
The 7.7 cm Feldkanone 96 neuer Art (7.7 cm FK 96 n.A.) was a field gun used by Germany in World War I, The gun combined the barrel of the earlier 7.7 cm FK 96 with a recoil system, a new breech and a new carriage with existing FK 96s were upgraded over time. The FK 96 n.A. was shorter-ranged, but lighter than the French Canon de 75 modèle 1897 or the British Ordnance QF 18 pounder gun.

The FK 96 was first seen in Battlefield 1 at the "EA Play" event on June 12, 2016. It is the anti-tank gun emplacement available near certain flags, mounted on a carriage.

It is very accurate at range and inflicts great damage against armor and structures. It is also placed in areas with good visibility, to better assail such targets from a distance.

Among the new animations featured in Battlefield 1 is that of the FK 96 being reloaded for each shot. This action, along with the weapon's shield, limits the player's vision. Turn rate is very slow, as the user must drag the carriage base of the gun. A peculiarity of the emplacement's operation is that the cannon will not be automatically reloaded after firing, but before each shot. The reason being giving the gunner time to view and adjust his aim after each shot instead of forcing him into the reload animation. Instead of having to "fire" twice first to prompt the reload and then actually shoot, one can still manually use the reload action first.

Since emplaced weapons are still considered vehicles, players using the FK 96 cannot be attacked with melee weapons, nor can they be revived if killed, at least in the alpha build of the game. The gun's shield provides some protection from the front, but the user is otherwise exposed.
