Arrangement of stripes on the flags waving above the grandstand is vertical (as in the flag of Romania). Arrangement of stripes on the flag of Yugoslavia was horizontal. Itcolonel are you sure that this parade of Yugoslavian troops. To me they look at Romanian flags.

The limber and horses harnesses look very similar to the ones in the photos in "Artileria Romana in date si imagini " by Col Adrian Stroea and Lt Col Gheorghe Bajenaru. So I think they are Romanian.

Hi Ltcolonel

We have already discussed the shields on the Romanian guns they appear to have had both styles. See http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 0#p1615017 and the next few post.

Hi all,

This is the backside of the image:




About the image of the Afghan gun posted by ROLAND1369,
Is this the 75mm (or 76.2mm) M1936 mountain gun or 75mm the M1939 version? :?

I've never seen the Romanian guns 75 mm M 28 with rounded shield and with muzzle break. I saw dozens of photos of the guns 75 mm M 28. Please show your picture with these guns with rounded shield and with muzzle break.

Rounded shields had just a few of the Romanian howitzers.

Tactical requirements for the Romanian guns were completely different from the requirements of Yugoslav artillery and therefore the Romanian guns had to be considerably less weight.

Hi

Itcolonel you can download the Romanian book posted by Clive on 30 Jul 2011
http://www.worldwar2.ro/documents/004-a ... magini.pdf
about Romanian artillery where you can see on page 70 Romanian M 28 with muzzle break... but perhaps the authors of this book mistakenly posted pictures of Yugoslavian M28 ?

I don't know exactly what type of gun is in the picture below - but I thing that it is a product of Skoda most likely some version of 8cm/10cm vz28/vz30. The photo shows the artillery of Imperial Iranian Army in 1930's

On the other hand, thank you very much for your new image, Stan. :D
I am not sure about the gun. Rounded shield, box trail, long barrel with muzzle break,...
It seems an 75mm M1928 field gun, maybe ??? :?

... some more about Romanian Skoda artillery :)

The two photos below: The Romanian Obuzierul Skoda cal. 100mm md.1930 exhibited in the Aviation Museum (Muzeul Aviaţiei) in Bucharest, Romania

Unfortunately I don't know whether it is the howitzer bought by the Romanian Army before the ww2 or meybe ex Czechoslovakian 10cm lehká houfnice vz.30 captured by the Germans in 1939 and sold as 10cm lFH30(t) to the Romanian Army during the war.
