The thing that puzzled me are the coats now I think these are coastal artillery crew.
OR if the AA managed to get the Motor troops Leather jackets.
(Possible as all Field army AA where motorised)
but I can't remember I seen that somewhere else.

Bofors twin 75mm M/28

Since it's a twin this is the exact model.(at least if it's Swedish navy)
And the details I can see are consistent with the 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

Thank you for the link,...interesting video

It should be noted that the Dutch tended to round off artillery calibres to whole centimetres. Thus, the "6 veld" was in fact a 57 mm field gun and the "7 veld" a 75 mm field gun (Krupp design).
However, it seems that the "8 luchtdoel" (ld) actually was 80 mm. For what it's worth, I found this on a website on Chinese artillery:

"75mm: Bofors M-1929 anti-aircraft gun. China acquired an unknown quantity of these guns from Bofors during the 1930s, and as well as being used in two versions by Sweden itself (M/29 in 75mm and M/30 in 80mm), they were exported to Argentina (for tests only, apparently), Finland, Greece, Hungary (in 80mm as the 8cm 29M), Iran, the Netherlands East Indies (in 80mm as the kanon van 8 ld) and Siam. These weapons were used alongside the Vickers 75mm guns by Chinese air defense units."

Thank you very much for your hrlp, John...
I suppose a Bofors design, is not it?

A more question about naval guns. Are these guns 12cm Bofors M1924 ?? :?

Swedish navy's non- Bofors guns after 1900 are easily counted,
IIRC only the Destroyers bought from Italy 1940.
I haven't seen any of the Rheinmetall 20mm onboard a ship.

These are published by the Maritime museum and I have very few reasons to question their caption.
And in this case, all pictures depicted "county" destroyers ("Landskapsjagare") and they had no alternative armaments.

Thank you for your quick answer, john....I had doubts because the breech of the guns of the second and third images seems different...

On the other hand, in https://digitaltmuseum.se, the photocaption identified this gun as a 76.2mm Bofors M28 model but here http://www.jaegerplatoon.net/AA_GUNS3.htm as a Bofors M27 model.... :?

Yes, you are right
The third pic is definitely not M/24
I say 12 cm m/94, if you scroll to pic 199423, it looks like AMC HMS Warun.
