This site can help you with the identification of Polish guns:

Note most weapons have a Linked gallery ("galeria") of further images.

Another site, from which you can start with the gun's name:

On this thread:
http://www.fortificatieforum.nl/viewtop ... f=34&t=412
there is a heavy howitzer at Normandie but with shield. What exactly is this?

There is also a heavy AA gun. Would that be a Vickers FLAK? Does anybody have more details on this particular gun, like markings and such?

Hi again

The flak gun at Deelen looks to me a "Canon de 75 mm C.A. Mle 1936 (Schneider)" aka 7.5 cm Flak 36 (f)

Hi all,

I found this image on Ebay and I am not sure about the gun. I think perhaps 10cm K17.
Can anybody help me to Id. the gun correctly?

Most likely yes, the breech matches the description and the shield also looks much the same as the one belonging to the 10cm K17. But rest of the image isnt very clear to me and i cant see a few of the features that are on the picture that are present on the one below.

I cannot figure out what is the gun in the foreground. It looks like an AA gun with 4 folding legs and has a small shield. :? Any idea?

Hi Emmanuel,
Looks like the Skoda project version of 10,5-cm leichte Feldhaubitze 43.

I'd say it's a Skoda field howitzer, 100 mm, M39 (H 3).

It's too small to be a 21cm Skoda K39, K30-40 or K39-41. The barrel is not installed in the picture, hard to tell without it.
Looking for the following, original or copy, any language:

Renault FT-17 - Manual and parts list
Somua MCG5 - Manual
Panzer III or StuG III - Manual and parts list
8,8 cm Flak 36 - Parts list and electrical diagram
150 cm Scheinwerfer G150K - Manual
