Skoda howitzer 15cm M.14/16 exists but difference is just in strengthening in rear part of barrel and some other minor modifications. It was produced from mid 1917. Technical and tactical specification are same as with basic 15cm M.14.
Ummhhh...I guess you can not distinguish both models visually, is it not ?

Any idea about the nationality of the soldiers of the image posted on 27 Jun 2018 ?

I am not able to distinguish them. :-(

I think that on that photo are Czechoslovak soldiers early after ww1 in Legionary uniforms. Though I am not 100 % sure.

These belonged to a heavy artillery battalion of one of the seven infantry army corps. The other corps motorized battalion, if memory serves me correctly, were modern French 105mm pieces.

It is notable that Romanian corps artillery only had guns of a similar calibre to those of a German infantry division. Romanian infantry divisions had 75mm and 100mm guns.

Another important difference was that while German divisional artillery was directed by radio, the Romanians still relied on field telephones, which made them far less mobile.
