I agree that the caliber looks bigger than 21 cm. It could be indeed a 24 cm SK L/40 or 28 cm SK L/40 or L/45.

But I do not have anymore information than the caption of the Bundesarchiv picture.

The bore looks pretty much the size of the 42cm pieces, but the lack of a gunshield might mean it is one of the early pieces that was listed as kurze marinekanone?

Hi all,

I found this interesting image on Ebay. I think the gun is a rare 30.5cm L30 Beta-M-Gerat.
Does somebody have any further information about these guns?

Quantity manufactured, specifications (weights, range,shells,.....)

Hi Sturm78,

It looks like a 120 mm Pattern 1892 Canet.
