If you are wandering about how these guns ended up in Belgrade (Rumania is one of few Axis countries not involved at all in fighting on Yugoslav territory 1941-45), you should know that USSR in 1945-46 presented its communist-state-ally Yugoslavia with lot of captured equipment.

Hi All

The Rumanian gun could also delebered from the Skoda
factory because it was kept in service after the occupation .

Yes, I'm happy - but I don't like "to end too quick" :wink:

This is info I got from Pavel Novak - Skoda Interwar exports:

- 7.5 cm "CD" mountain gun - about 1930 - 1939
(7,5 cm GebK 285)
(vz.14/19 is missing! But this is "another story", worth of new topic - "German sales of Czech beute guns")
