Thank you very much for your quick answer, Jopaerya. :D

In the book "Atlantikwall" of Alain Chazette (pag.339) there are a very similar image of this gun, identified , indeed, as a 16.4 cm K.M. 93-96 (f) gun of Fort de Locqueltas (Bttr.2/MAA 264)

I'm always lost with these French coastal guns :oops:

This looks to me to be a 138 MM M 1910.

I agree with Roland1369 , a 138 mm Mle 1910 of the French coast batterie Requin .
After 1940 the batterie was called M.K.B. La Coubre Ost ( Gironde ) by the Germans.

Hi all,

A more difficult question (I think): Can somebody identify this coastal gun?

Hello Sturm78

It's hard to see but the gun with the combination with the typical filling of cammonet ,
then my best option would be the 15 cm S.K.C/28 in V.P.L. at M.K.B. Coubre-West ( Gironde ).

Another view of the same gun and camouflage net and quite possibly the same soldier:
