With apologies if you've seen this already but the Hungarian 105's at the end are worth seeing.

Hi all,

I have some doubts about this hungarian AT gun. First, I thought in a 3.7cm TaK gun but...the barrel seems longer than standard 3.7cm Tak/Pak German guns...... :? :?

Any idea ??

Sturm, as Gillono said, it is basically a 37mm Pak with a new 40mm barrel, made in the same plant which turned out the Hungarian Bofors AA, and with silly looking wooden wheels.

Hi all,

A nice image of an hungarian 15cm Bofors-MAVAG 31M howitzer. There are very few wartime images of these howitzers....

Hi all,

I found this image on the net. (sorry, I don´t remember the site)
I am not sure : I would say 7.65cm Bohler M18 but........very few were made in WWI...
Another option is 7.65cm Skoda M17 but I think there are some differences...

Any help will be welcome...

It is the same...I want only to know the model of the gun.... :P ...Anyway I would say that the gun is hungarian....although I can be wrong...
Both countries inherited 8cm guns of Austria-Hungary after WWI...
