The 76.2 mm AA gun mod. 1915/28 had three versions - a fixed one bolted directly to a concrete foundation, a semi-fixed on a semi-fixed carriage mod. 1927 and a mobile one on a ZU-29 trailer - as seen in the last photo.

Yes, it is. :) The photo depicts a towed 76.2 mm AA gun mod. 1915/28.
By the way - I've found a curious information in a Russian book, stating that only 19 of these guns took part in the WW2. It seems a little bit strange, but I haven't tried to confirm it yet.

Regards

Grzesio

Chazatte, in relation to the photo 3, is this weapon the same that 15cm K (Einsenbahn) railway gun
of which I upload this photo? In photo3 nobody would say it is a railway gun.

image from BPK
It 's a 15 cm SK/L 45 in MPL C/13 auf Eisenbahnwagen. It belonged to the naval coastal battery “Gneisenau” stationed in France for most of the war. Here a history of this battery (in French) from A. Chazette:

http://atlantikwall.superforum.fr/norma ... =gneisenau

There were other 15cm K (Einsenbahn) railway guns without shield.

Hello Sturm78

The gun is a ex-Norwegian 15 cm L/47,5 Armstrong according to the book "Tyske kystfort i Norge" from J.E.F.

till 1902, the gunhouse on your last photo has a different shape then the first photo of this gun .
