Maybe the 37M 10.5 cm light cannon or 14M 10 cm light howitzer.

artillery piece

It looks most like a Model 14/19 - leFH 14/19(t). This was a very popular weapon manufactured during WW I by Skoda and modified after the war by various users. The longer barrel visible in your pic indicates that it is a Model 14/19 versus a Model 14.

Bottom pic of the gun in action is Italians on allied side.

Italy modified many of these weapons with rubber tires for tractor towing.

Thank you for the nice pictures, Milán.

I can see Admiral Horthy wearing his naval uniform in the color photo! :lol: He must be very sad that Hungary didn't have a seaport anymore after Trianon.

Best Regards!
