Sort of, I knew it was a Swedish 20 mm recoilless AT rifle and figured the question wouldn't last long. I don't frequent this thread often and was surprised to see the quiztion still standing.

Thanks for both Iffig. Was half expecting to see a pic from the Bay of Pigs where the rumour has it that Pvg m/42s bought by the CIA saw use in exile Cuban hands.

New subject: The calibres of these two weapons?

Very close but not quite. Think original metric instead of converted inch sizes.

Obvious guess, 75mm and 7.5mm. The artillery piece looks like an M1897 variant.

75 & 7,5 mm is correct,

Having a little trouble, but I don't want to hold things up, so I'll cede my place to the previous correct responder.
