Two more pictures, "railway" version and "land" version. But I am not sure, there is a gun with fenders on carriage and breech opening to right side.

Thank you. I might be wrong but I believe the first photo is of a 15cm Czech gun.

Best,

I think it is one of the 15 cm K15/16(t) of MKB Semaphore at Port-Vendres.

The 15 cm K15/16(t) had an opening on the side of the breach while the 15 cm S.K. L/40 did not. :wink:

It is one of the 6 guns 17-cm SKL/40 auf Eisenbahnwagen "Samuel" obtained by Belgium after WW1.
See post #10 from ALVF in this thread.
