15cm K18: box trail, mudguards on wheels, wheels with 6 round holes and firing platform incorporated under the gun carriage. Transported in two loads: carriage trailer and barrel trailer.
15cm K39: split trail, without mudguards, spoked wheels or with 8 round holes , and separated firing platform. Transported in three loads: carriage trailer, barrel trailer and platform trailer.
