Looks like a 122 mm corps gun M1931/37 but maybe this one has a little battle damaged ,
because I am missing the vertical stabilizers ??? The photo is from Ebay .

May be, in such a way it was disabled by her crew when abandoned.

Best regards, Aleks

Hi Jos and Aleks

It looks like the cradle and its contents (barrel and recoil system) are not in their correct place, not only the equilibrators (balance springs) missing. The cradle etc. seems to be pushed back. To me as an ex-gun fitter it is a bit more than a crew disabling action. It appears to be damaged, battle of other wise and is/was/should be under repair.

Most armies have a drill for spiking guns to make them unusable by the enemy units immediately capturing them. But all know in reality that the enemy has workshops that can repair and if need be build new parts. The question for artillery commanders is do they spike the gun when retreating or destroy it? Normally time only allows for spiking and if destroyed there is no chance of use if recaptured.

Any ideas?? :?

I think that just rubber tyre was removed, while the wheel itself was left untouched.
Something like this.

Ummhhhh. I don`t think so. The rubber tyre of these small wheels have not been removed.
Now I think that these wheels are, in fact, the limber wheels of the gun!! :idea:

I agree with Sturm78. But there is a limber visible behind the gun. So the Germans may have used another set of limber wheels to tow the gun to a collection point or just to prop up the gun at this location. The front of the gun is severely damaged so its original wheels had probably been badly damaged as well.
