Interesting picture !
Yes, it looks like the same gun indeed, towed by Henschel 33, possibly the “mittlere Flakkraftwagen” version. The question I have is: was the trailer designed to render the gun mobile like its derivative the Belgian 75 mm FRC M1927 ? Or is it done here for propaganda purposes only? Or was the trailer just a means to transport the gun to another static location?

Was this image taken in Germany or in another country?
Bulgarian guns perhaps....?
The trailer seems similar to a Sd.Ah.201 of the 8.8cm Flak 18
Sturm that picture of the towed guns on parade was taken in.... Spain!

Four of the 14 x 8,8 cm Flak L /45 in MPLC/13 supplied to Spain were mounted on German
7,5 / 36 Flak 14 carriages as one mobile battery . The photo probable from the Desfile de la Victoria
in 1943 .
