Hi Luftflotte/Tom:

Tom is correct in the photo with the A/C and a mob of trucks, they are Nissan 80's.

Regarding the other photo, here is a photo of a Toyota KB, similar to the earlier GB that points out a little better the grille detail and a photo of a Lithuanian 1937 Ford pointing out the same details.

edit: Note also that the main headlamps on Toyotas are mounted on the side of the engine hood and those of the Fords are mounted on the front fender/wing.

This is interesting photo. These cars are of Manchukuo Army. The armored cars in the foreground were improvised in Manchuria.

Hi all,

Can somebody identify the gun towed by Type 95 Ho-Fu tractors of the images posted by Luftflotte2 ? :?

Hi.

I think these are the barrel trailers for the Type 89 150 mm cannon. The barrel trailers for the Type 96 150 mm cannon and the Type 96 240 mm howitzer are different.

Yours

tom! :wink:

Thank you, Tom.

Does you have any other image of the barrel trailer of the 15cm Type 89 without tarpaulin?

I upload the photo of the barrel trailer of the Type 89 15cm Cannon. But, it is different from that in question.

Note that the tractor on this photo is Ho-Fu. Ho=Fu has half-round holes on the cover of suspension. The tractors on the photos of Luftflotte2 are not Ho-Fu, but Ni-Ku.

First of all, thanks for your images of this little know weapon, Taki and Peter. :D
There are very few images of this gun.

In second place, of your images it could deduce that this weapon was towed in one single load, not in two separate trailers, as I thought. Is this correct? :?
Or the two possibilities existed?

The wheels of the trailers of the images posted by Luftflotte2 are very different. I think older weapon, probably. :?

At first, Type 89 must be separated into two to be drawn. But, as it was inconvenient, Type 89 was later improved to be drawn without separating.

The barrel trailer of Type 45 15cm Cannon is similar to that in question, but not exactly the same. I cannot identify the type of that gun.

It is Type 95 Rairoad Crane Vehicle. It is not one model of Ri-Ki. It is rather similar to Type 95 Armored Railroad Car "So-Ki", which had both tracks and wheels.

The latest number of Ground Power Magazine features IJA special vehicles.
http://www.hlj.com/product/GALGP1108

It has several new photos of IJA special vehicles like Te-Re, Ri-Ki and others (some of them were offered by me). So, don't miss it, if you are interested in these odd vehicles.
