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.... :?

This is a 10 cm cannon type 92...

Hi.

The upper lafette, the position of the barrel step plus the bail above the gunners indicates that it is a Type 88 75 mm AA-Gun

Hi.

Sorry, took me some time to find a compareable pic of the Type Taisho 14 10 cm AA-Gun.

First time I saw japanese gunners using earmuffs....

The barrel step of the Type Taisho 14 is just in front of the upper lafette. The Type 88s is further to the muzzle.

Hello, are these Japanese AA guns or Australian 3.7 inch guns? Picture from the Dutch Military Archives showing Tarakan on Dutch Borneo after the Aussies took it. Sorry, answer right here, they are Aussie guns: https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C20710

From the look of the bogie trucks, and the overhead recuperator on the guns, they're 3.7" AA guns of one mark or another.

]Hi.

Overhead recuperators were also used on the Type 3 120 mm AA-Guns and the Type 4 75 mm AA-Guns:
