You are absolutely right Uwe. Man thanks!

I am guessing this gun is 100% being used by the Italians in the photo.

Best,
Nezar

Thanks Uwe,

But I imagine they might be German troops visiting an Italian artillery position. I don't know of any German units using the K331(f) in Afrika. Do you? :idea:

Best regards,
Nezar

Hi Uwe,

Thank you for your reply. I think then that the picture is of German Afrikakorps soldiers posing with an Italian version of the 10.5cm K331(f), the Cannone da 105/28 modello 1913.

Best,
Nezar

The terrain and dress of the soldiers beside the gun all make it 100% North Africa.

I found this photo in ebay.de, what AA gun is this?

The caption says it's a 88, but evidently it isn't.

I'll take my chances, it's a late-produced German howitzer, probably a 105mm. :milsmile:

An ex-Soviet 122 mm howitzer M-30 with the barrel out-of-battery and some (camouflage mounting?) bracket over the recoil gear.
