China imported ~50 sFH18 howitzers from German before 1937 when the war with Japan fully started. There were two version be imported.

One version like the one displayed at Jin Zhou Civil War Museum. It is said this version sFH18 was made by Krupp.

The other version like the one dislpayed at China Military Museum. And it is said that this one was made by Rheinmetall, the same version adopted by Wehrmacht.

What is the different of these two versions? Is the first one also used by Wehrmacht during WWII?
