All the howitzer turrets of Metz fortress are H.P.T. 95. The only place you can see H.P.T. 93 version is Großer Pfaffenberg at Graudenz fortress. Both versions looks the same from the outside, the difference was only in the internal mechanisms.
Thanks, Ondrej... :wink:

May be a 28-cm L/14 tube or a 30,5 cm tube on this old trailer?
I have no certitude...
Hi Guy François.

About your last image I think is a 28cm Krupp L12 barrel trailer. I think match with this other image.
Although it cannot be seen very well in the photo, above the breech it appears to have 3 holes to coincide with the upper brake and recovery cylinders of the 28cm Krupp L12 howitzer

The L14 had two cylinders above and two below for these mechanisms. In adittion the 30.5cm Beta Gerat 09 Haubitze L17 i.R
also have 2 cylinders above and two below for these mechanisms, so I think only remains the option of a 28cm L12....

Any thoughts on this fuzzy shot from exp. eBay.de; Auction N:o in pic name.

Emergency AT gun maybe? Uniform looks slightly Franco-Belgian to me.

Hello,

It is a 15 cm K.i.S.L (Kanone in Schirmlafette) with boggies for normal gauge, they are also boggies for 0,60 m gauge.
Only 8 guns made before 1914, used in Metz fortifications and on the front in 1914-1918.
Yours sincerely,
Guy François.
