I would say that this is a 164 MM Mle 1893-96 sur affût C Mle 1923 SF. A captured French weapon.

The guns appear to be Belgian 120 mm M1931 aka 120 mm k370(b)s in German service. This should narrow down the Id considerably.

Uummhhhh....I am not sure...here an image from Wikipedia of an 164.7mm Mle 1893-96 gun....
The recoil mechnism and the general appareance of the entire gun seems very different.... :?

I agree with Roland1369. For reference, here is a picture of a 164 MM Mle 1893-96 sur affût C Mle 1923 SF at the French battery of Amfreville near Cherbourg in 1940 (from page 29 of “Les batteries de côte en Normandie 1939-1944” by Alain Chazette):
