HEY, THAT'S A GREAT FIND! :D :D :D

This Schneider howitzer looks as the same model as Argentianian type M.28 Schneider 105mm L/17.8! :D
(with older/original type of wheels :roll: )

My dear Nuyt,

I am not Tosun Pasha, I am a lietunant. But I would like you to introduce real Tosun Pasha: A very famous film figure, a comic from the late Ottoman Period: The Governor of Alexandria, Egypt :D :D :D For further information: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0253828/

(Really hate newspaper photos! :x
In general, of course :wink: )

1945 Artillary3.jpg – that Rheinmetall L/30 piece

1945 Artillary2.jpg – US supplied – either original Schneider C17S or US-made M.1918 M1

1945 Artillary4.jpg – US supplied - 105mm light howitzer M2

(1945... hmmm... realy not an interwar material. :roll: However, very, very interesting! :) )

Two pictures from 1947, 1947top & 1947top1, are VERY interesting. :)
This is L17S, Schneider 155 Mle 1917 long gun, a "bigger" brother of C17S we already seen. 8-)
(Probably purchased along 105 mm and C155 mm Schneider exports, somewhere about 1930 - my guess they don't have arabic letters on them :wink: )
Rest of the guns are US models from 1950s - so you don't need me to identify them. :D

Book info

Post by nuyt » 28 Oct 2006 11:14

Dear Tosun,
On another post I saw you quoted the book "Top ve Topçu Atış Okulu 150nci Yıl Hatırası 1795-1945, s. 128" (150th Anniversary of Artillary and Artillary War School 1795-1945. Is there any info on the 1930s inventory and especially the HIH guns?

Kind regards,
Nuyt

Post by nuyt » 29 Oct 2006 11:50

Today I zapped thtough the tv channels and I saw TRT Int had a parade (for Ataturk's birthday?) I kept watching and saw a couple of Rheinmetall 10,5cm L30s being towed by horses! A very rare sight! Does anybody have pictures?
