Looks like a 20mm Oerlikon to me. They were produced in a number of versions and used by both Poland abd France and the British navy. Captured guns were used by the Germans.

Here is another AA gun picture from ebay. The caption said that it was taken in France but I don't recognize the gun.

I think I have an answer... It's not French but the British 3in 20cwt QF AA Gun, an almost WWI weapon. A lot of these were left behind during the Dunkirk evacuation and used by the German Army under the designation "7.5cm Flak Vickers (e)"

The mountings used were as varied as the guns. Some guns were statically mounted on concrete or steel beds. Others were mounted on a two-wheel carriage with 4 outriggers, and there were three marks of four-wheel "BEF platform" carriage.

Here are 2 pictures of this gun from ebay.de. Its trailer is partially visible and looks like a four-wheeler (more accurately 2 sets of wheels).

Hello Emmanuel and Dimitris

Looks that the 7.5cm FlaK 14 L/36 also used the Sonderanhänger 201 for transport
just as the early 8.8 cm guns , according to some internetsite's it was only made
for export to Spain and Brasil .
