Although the breech has 1926 markings, some sources say it's Luftvärnskanonen m/30: http://www.civilforsvar.se/Lidingobilder.htm
With best regards, Ilya.

I'm looking for some information about two M/15-23 AA guns from Vaxholm fortress. It's shipborne type gun as I know but paper near in museum says: De första luftvärnskanonerna vid Kustartilleriet. = The first anti-aircraft gun model at the Coast Artillery Anybody can explain it?
And one more question. One of these has serial number 9, and the second is - ?

Thanks
Regards, Igor

Hi!
I found on the Internet 2 schemes of Swedish Pansarvärnskanonvagn m/43
VSLovwI.jpg
signed Pvkv m/43 with 75mm L60
bAxDFYw.jpg
signed Pvkv m/43 with regular later verison 75mm L50,5 gun

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php ... e__st__240

Tell me please Pvkv m/43 with 75mm L60 is real or is from alternative history?

AFAIK the helmets are Swedish m21s and the gaiters are also consistent with Swedish use.

Thank you for your anmswer, ludvig,

I have these other two images on my computer of a very similar 80mm Bofors static AA gun used by KNIL forces, but I can see some differences: different situation of dial pointers and handwheels,....
Do you know the designation of this other model ??

Thank you, ludvig. Do you know the Bofors designation for the KNIL 8cm AA guns ?? :?
I think it is a different model of the swedish 7,5cm lvkan M /36
