what kind of cannon is this? The description says 75mm mountain. But does anyone know exactly what its designation is?

Could be Skoda M15, but the tractor, is that a turretless Vickers light tank?

The gun is a Skoda M15--in German service it's a 7.5cm GrebK 15. I don't see the slot for the gunsight, so it's likely the negative was reversed and it's hidden behind the gun barrel.

The photo is not upside down because the vehicle looked different from the other side, there is a covered exhaust.

Well, the sighting slot in the shield doesn't look like it's there. Maybe it's just the angle or something.

Thank you for your help,T. A. Gardner...I think you are right.
Are the soldiers of the image Germans ? I guess that these guns are ex-Italian guns captured by Germans after Sept.1943 ....

Ummmhhhh....I think the Hungarians not used this model of gun....or perhaps the Germans donated these captured ex-Italian guns to the Hungarians after Sept. 1943 ?? :?
