Don't think it's a 10.5 cm leFH16, the length of barrel sticking out beyond the end of the recoil slide is too long. I looked a little more closely at some references and I think it's a 7.5 cm Feldkanone 235(b), the former Belgian Canon de 75mm TR, a licence-built version of the Krupp Model 1905. There are handrails (?) on top of the barrel just forward of the gunshield.

Regards,

Dear Jack

Looking at it I'm tempted to agree with you its a TR.

The hand rails are not on top of the barral, the are to the side of the barral - take a closer look. Basically in old WW1 era field guns two of the crew had seats on the front of the gunshield either side of the gun, the handrails are there so they dont fall off

Cheers

Hi

Amoung my pictures I found a picture with a 88 mm pak 43 mounted on a Sdkfz 251 instead of the armoured passenger room. The only info I have regarding this picture is that it was a single prototype.

I don´t remember the website I found it, sorry.


Yours

tom :wink:

Not for the Sdkfz, but some other pictures of German artillery equipment can be found here.
