"Artillery" identification in Russia

Post by David Lehmann » 28 Sep 2003 12:46

Hello,

Image

Could that be a Hohlladungsstielgranate on a 37mm Pak36 ?

Image

Could the gun be a 75mm LG40 ?

Regards,

David

Hello

on the first picture:
yes it is correct, even with the gun not visible, since it was the only one designed to use it...

on the second pic:

I think is a captured soviet heavy mortar, with a shield added, since wheel design does not mach (afaik) any german design.

regards

mmm In fact I think it could be a 10.5cm LG43, look at this one :

It would be the first time I see it on a "real" photo.

Nice pic indeed.

I would also bet it is 10.5cm LG 43 -> (folded) shield, carriage and wheels match quite perfectly -> also with pictures in I.V. Hoggs, "German artillery of WW2".

... for sure it is not any Soviet heavy mortar.

Looks like an LG 43 from here. It matches my pics as well.
