I think gun No1 might be the Krupp prototype of the 10,5cm Kanone 41. No2 a lFH18 re the bevelled shield.

It's a good idea. Do you have a picture of the Krupp version for comparison?

I have found only this picture from the website
http://www.wehrmacht-history.com/heer/f ... one-41.htm

It does not say which version it is, Krupp or Rheinmetall, but no vertical shock absorbers are visible om the footage still. :?

I don't think so. Several elements don't match besides the different shield and the different (wider) wheels: in particular the two vertical shock absorber and the extremities of the two recoil tubes.

No1.
That one is the Rmetall version, without shield. There are picture sin Chamberlain and Gander of the Krupp version (rear view) and one of the Hogg books (front view).

No2 has the articulated split trail and the wheels as seen on the FK18 and 39. Note on the link to the discussion on the Overvalwagen Forum about the FKs in Brazil, there is a picture of the FK38 with these wheels, the shield of the lFH18 and two different muzzle brakes.

Hello Jos, i dont know .... did the maginot-linie had this caliber of guns?

this battery is part of Heeres-Festungs-Art. Abt. 1128 (formerly "M" = Maginot?)
maybe the handwritten letters mean "Werk Anzeling"...

Gros Ouvrage Anzeling had a 13,5 cm turret and 7,5 cm turret , even a H.K.B. in the Sudwall used a ex-maginot turret as main guns .

Hi Jos. Did they really used the turret, or the turret guns. I think the only real fortress turrets of German coastal fortifications were 4 x 7,5 cm Cockerill turrets and 4 x 12 cm Schneider turrets at Norway (I am not sure if they have used the old turrets of French forts at Dunkerque and Brest.
