Hi Sturm,

Maybe ex-Belgian 75 mm TR field gun; cf. Image I guess the barrel in the museum piece may have crept backward due to tired recuperator spring.

I should have clarified my reply my first answer was for the second picture. The first picture was a 100 MM Panzertrum M 98 modified with the long 100 MM gun. These were the primary armament of the German forts defending Metz duiring WW I and formed a secondary defense for the Maginot Line.

To be more precise -

The first picture is Panzerturm P.T.96 with long 105 mm barrel in reinforced version (the other versions were: short and long not reinforced), It could be Metz or feste Kaiser Wilhelm II near Strasbourg.

The second picture is not from Metz. It is probably feste Kaiser Wilhelm II, because of hilly terrain.

The turrets are preserved today.
