Hello
Im one of those that takes things slowly
Im curious about the conclusion that the photo is taken in Russia.
One of the pictures seems to have a additional Mg in the background. Seems like the photo is exposed twice.
Is it a russian, or a french Mg ? From Poland ?
regards

Looks like Degtyarev DT.

As you can see, used by USSR and Finnland (captured) pieces.

Hello
Looks like Degtyarev DT.
Something to learn all the way..
For the guns from Vickers i recomend the site linked below. It have quite a few photos, also of the gun mentioned plus some of the 8" guns sold to Russia.
Seems to be a slight difference in the weels of those.

Since all Finnish 8" were US made - and bigger part of Russian too (41 of 72) - my vote to American model.

This one, "British Army model", is the same I saw in Russian Artillery Encyclopedia:

This model ("Howitzer gun - customer Russia") I haven't seen so far (anywhere)

nice picture of the 20,3 cm s.H. 501 (e) 8 inch.

Note the 501(e) however does not have the front guide ring as indicated in the original photos (as does the 8" Vickers Mark VI)

Pls see scans

The captured Russian 20,3 cm haubitze (8" Vickers MkVI) is 502(r)

There is no photo in the D50/5 manual and only a drawing which shows a very similar weapon but with wooden wheels

Hallo Jos

Seen exactly the same gun on Oscarsborg.
In Norway it was called 7,5cm Feltkanon m/01.
The breech is stamped "Rh.M.F. 7,5cm 1901"
So...Its actually an old German gun.
