looks like one of the many variants of the Oerlikon guns used by both sides along the was...I think the original patent was of Swiss origin.

Well, this for example is an Oerlikon :

I don't know what it is don't totally look like a 25mm Hotchkiss CA38 or CA39, don't look like a 2.0cm Flak30 ... And why is it labelled Renault ?

A Franco/German modification of an original Hotchkiss CA30,38 or 39 AA gun ?
