Pretty sure it’s 38cm battery Vara.

The ventilation opening on the side of the turret is positioned slightly farther back on the 40.6cm gun turret.

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for information about this Italian coastal gun in Libya. Photo supposedly taken in Tobruk.

Many thanks in advance,

Dave

I would say from the shape of the shield and the barrel this is a 150 MM Ubts. u. Tbts. K L45 known tom the Italians as a 149 MM 42. These were removed from the large ex German WW I destroyer Premuda ex V 116 received from Germany as WW I reparations. At least one of these is listed as emplaced at Tobruk during WW II.

Hi all,

I found this blurry image on Ebay. According to photo caption, Batterie Oldenburg in Calais but I think this is wrong
I would say a 28cm SK L45 gun...perhaps Prinz Heinrich batterie ?? :?
