Hmm. That was my first thought but then I concentrated on the protruding cylinder underneath the tube. It appears big and single. I would expect two cylinders in the F-22. :?

Two cylinders (recuperator and recoil brake) of slightly different length typical for F-22:

For Sturm78, as a TWAG (Total Wild Ass Guess), 12"/52 pattern 1907. Comparing the bore to the sentry's head, seems too large to be 180mm. The 12" barrel was stepped, while the 180mm was a straight taper. If I could see under the cammo nets, possibly could make a more scientific guess.

Your photo shows the 130 mm M1913 L55 gun. These artillery guns were removed from the sunken cruiser Chervona Ukraine. In Sevastopol there were four two-gun batteries with such guns, initially the battery numbers were 113, 114, 115, 116, later the battery numbering changed.

Your photo shows the barrel of a 180 mm M1933 coastal gun. This photo was taken at the coastal battery No. 412 in Odessa, the guns of this battery was demolished on 25 August 1941.

Your photo shows the 120 mm L50 Vickers M1905 naval gun, most of this guns were produced in Russia by the Obukhov plant.

Post #264
You are right, your photo shows the 152 mm Canet-Obuhov M1892 artillery gun.

Your photo shows the 180 mm M1933 coastal gun in Sevastopol. This gun was located in the area of the Lazarev barracks and use for exersise. In May 1942, this weapon was organizationally included in the battery No. 115 (No. 704)

Post #266
The foreground of your photo shows the 130 mm B-13 L50 gun from the first series. We can see the expansion of the shield on the right side, which is a characteristic feature of the guns of this series; there was no such expansion in subsequent series.
