Thanks for the link, Taki

Very interesting images. I am not sure about this one.
According to photo caption an 15cm Type 96 but I think there were some differences in the shield.... :?

They are Type 96 15cm Howitzers. The characteristic of the shield of Type 96 is an interior hood upon the barrel. It is not seen on other artillery.
