Hi Jason,

I have checked the photos of 15cm sFH13 in Wikipedia and I continue to believe that the weapon is a 15cm sFH13 (or 15cm sFH13-02), despite some minor differences. Maybe the gun was slightly modernized in the years 20-30.

I'm thinking that it's a sFH13/02 myself. That triangular part of the cradle under the breech cinches it for me.

Hi all,

I found this image in Ebay. According to photocaption they are captured russian guns. Does someone know the model of this gun?

My uneducated guess is a pair of 107 mm guns M1910/30 (cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:107mm_gun_1930.JPG )

Thank you very much for your Id, Markus. :D

I found this other gun photo in Ebay. I guess it's a 105mm Schneider Mle1913 but is difficult to insure. Can anyone confirm it?

That's wrong type of breech for a "Schneider" :wink:

Hi The Edge,

Thanks for your link, but I now think it could be a 10.5cm K14. The K17 had a longer tube.

Regards Sturm78.

I agree (photo on my Wikipedia link also shows a K14 - the right one)

Hi all,

I found on Ebay these images of WW1-era german field artillery.
I think that the first photo shows a 7.7-7.5cm FK16 in travel position and the second photo a 10.5cm leFH16. Both weapons are very similar and can not ensure 100%.

Hi all,

I think that the gun of my picture posted on 01 Mar 2009 13:09 (with crew pose) could be a 7.7cm Feldkanone 96 nA. Could someone give their opinion?

It looks to me like a northern German city, a port in the Bremen-Koenigsberg range. Possibly the buildings have been destroyed.
