Hi Sturm78,

I agree with you: 7,5 cm Flak M.33(f), ex-75 mm CA Mle 1933.

On the 75 mm CA Mle 1930, we would see some protective plates for the crew. and the 75 mm CA Mle 17-34 would be much higher above ground among other things.

75 mm CA Mle 1932 assembled by the Germans in the French city of Troyes in the Summer of 1940.

Behind the row of AA guns, you can see a row of 15,5 cm GPF-T guns.

Hi all,

I am not sure about this gun. I think 75mm Mle 1897 sur affût plateforme Mle 1939. Is this correct?

Yes. Rare find, Sturm78! 8-)

Only about 15 x 75 mm CA Mle 97/39 (75 mm Mle 1897 on platform Mle 1939) were used by the French Army in April 1940.

Hi all,

Does somebody know the official designation of this 75mm Mle 1897 gun on truck from WW1? :?
Any idea about the model of the truck?

Hi all,

Nobody for my last image ?? :(

Well, here another image from http://www.delcampe.net.
75mm Mle 1897 sur affût plateforme Mle 1915 demi-fixe de champagne

I am not sure if this image was taken during WWI or during inter-wear years. :?

Sturm78,

The fact that the soldiers are wearing a "calot" instead of the WW1 cap and have no "bandes molletieres" above their shoes leads me to believe that the picture was not taken during a war period but during the interwar. :idea:

Note the graduations on the circular rail around the pit.
