Hi all,

I found these three images on Ebay of a naval gun mount. Any idea?

According to photocaption U-32 submarine. This submarine was a Type VIIA, armed with a 8.8cm SK C35 gun on a Ubts LC/35
mount, if I am not wrong.

However I think that mounting of the images not match with this gun. :?

This is a MPLC/30 for either a 8,8 cm SKC/30 or 10,5 cm SKC/32 Naval AA gun.

Hello Sturm78,
These photos puzzled me too , but solved a problem for me !
The story goes :
Some German submarines where fitted with with 4 x 8,8 cm SKC/30 and
4 x 8,8 cm MPLC/30 and send as an " emergency " delivery for protection
of German naval units in Trondheim harbour in April 1940 !! The 8,8 cm
SKC/30 were used for German naval AA battery Ladehammeren . On the
photos you can clearly see the Trondheim habour with long stone pier .
