Sturm78,

I think that the gun on the bottom is a 57 mm Nordenfelt (L/48).

See here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QF_6-pounder_Nordenfelt

and the 3rd picture of post # 49 of 11 Jan 2012:

Yes, it is a difficulkt question. I think it is not an 15cm Skoda M15-16 gun barrel...Perhaps a naval gun...15cm Skoda K10.. :idea:

Thanks, ludvig...I guess you refers to the 15cm Panzermörser M80...

Yes. It is one of the seven 14 cm Mle 1910 guns captured by the Germans near Verdun in February 1916. The one on the picture was installed in the ""Bois d'Herméville" (Herméville Woods).

Image 1 is maybe a 10mm barreled model with some sort of textured wall behind it, though how accurate the model is in the first place I couldnt say. Image 2 looks like it is somewhere in the 20cm range, but otherwise I dont know I am afraid.

Hi sturm78,
the 2nd pic (11 august) shows a 21cm küstenmörser m80
https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Ca ... 6rser_M80)
If you are looking for a book about austro-hungarian artillery, you should definitely check "The Austro-hungarian artillery from 1867 to 1918",its really worth it.
