Hi all,

Here, another image (from Ebay) of an 15cm Positionshaubits m/06 on a transport trailer.
Any idea about the date in which this image could be taken ? 1920s , 1930s ??

Hi all,

I think a 15cm Bofors M1937 gun. According to Ebay photo caption the image would be taken in postwar period...

One of the 105mm m/40's but not shure of subvariant ( see page 2 on this thread)


and the earlier photos (30 July) , hard to say 15 cm m/38 m/39 or 152mm m/37

Cheers

The clamps are visible in the 2nd photo so not the same piece in both photos.

How about 7,5 cm Kanon m/02-33 for the 1st photo:Image

The first one is a 152 mm m98/36 gun, the second is a 120 MM Ersta turret from the cold War.

Hello Sturm78 ,
Interesting photos , after a fast research :
1) 21 cm M/98 from battery Hamnskär , very similar to 15 cm M /98 at Korsö
2) 12/70 Ersta from battery Söderarm . Notice the photo is without
the glassfibre camouflage " hat " Roland 1369 is correct .
3 ) looks as an 15 cm M/98 B from either Sôderarm or Landsort batteries

Notice the Swedish coast artillery " heritaged " many navy gun barreles in
WW II

Is the armour plate cover an added after the WW2 or this battery was already built on this way from the beginning ??

Do you have any WW2-era images of these 21cm and 15cm M98 Bofors guns ??
