It's an "autocanon de 75 mm Mle 1913/34".

Thank you for your answer, Emmanuel. :D

I suppose that this weapon used the same De Dion Bouton SP chassis that the earlier 75mm Mle1913, no?
Have you better images of this weapon?

Yes, this is the same De Dion Bouton chassis. The difference between the Mle 1913 and the modernized Mle 1913/34 is probably the fire direction system.

Here is a postcard of the WW1 SP gun and a picture (from ebay) of the Mle 19/34 captured in Vittel, France in 1940 by the Germans.

This AA SP gun was also used by Poland.

Thank you very much, Emmanuel. :D

It's hard to tell the difference between the 75mm Mle 1913 and the 75mm Mle 1913-34 modernized with new fire direction system.

if it's a picture from May-June 1940 in the Western Front it has to be the Mle 13/34. :idea:
