Hi all,

I found this blurry image (retouched) of a Soviet 210mm Br.17 Skoda gun. There are very few wartime images of this gun:

Here is a fairly decent profile pic of a Skoda 21cm K39. I bought a few of these off ebay over the years and I also have a 10-12 picture series that was done in sequence to show assemby steps (bought from Karl Pawlas so they may be also captured in Waffen Revue series somewhere).

Regards

Shirokorad published a new article about 210 mm Skoda guns. One who doesn't know Russian language can either view the images or use an autotranslator. He claims that V-3 design was developed in 1944—1947.
With best regards, Ilya.

Thank you very much for the link, ain92. :D

According to this, Soviet Army had nine 21cm Br-17 guns, manufactured in 1940-41 but they only used these guns in 1944-45 battles. It would be interesting to find a picture of this gun taken during these battles with the Red Army.

The images of the V3 gun are very interesting. They seem taken during their trials, probably in Czechoslovakia in 1948 or 1949. According to my information ("Skoda heavy guns" of Michal Prasil), Russia ordered nine guns of this model in 1948.

According to this book, the V3 model (K52 or M43) was introduced in service with German Army in 1944-45.
It is a pity I still have not seen any images of the final variant K52 (M43) in service with the German army during World War II. :(

Then I'll post a page from a Soviet handbook on ammunition of the former German army artillery printed in 1946. Do you need a translation?
