Help ID this weapon.
Most likely it is a kind of grenade launcher / rocket launcher (?) Company Zbrojovka Brno (see member of the factory protection Werkschutz and his emblem "Z"). Year 1944/45. It reminds me of something, but I can't remember what.

Hello,

It is a "155 L de la Guerre modèle 1877 sur affût de bord modèle 1917".
During the great war, many Army guns were mounted on "affût de bord" or "affût à support enveloppant" to arm merchant ships against the german submarines. These mountings are simple and easy to build.
The more numerous were the :
-90 mm modèle 1877 de la Guerre gun on modèles 1916, 1917 and 1918 mounts, they were in great numbers on merchant ships and on small anti-submarine vessels, some were send in England also for mounting on merchant ships.
-120 mm Long de la Guerre modèles 1878 and 1877-1916 guns on 1916 and 1917 mounts, also in great numbers.
-155 mm Long de la Guerre modèle 1877 gun on 1917 mount, the mount appeared only in 1918 and mounted in small numbers on merchant ships.
-the far more powerful 14 cm and 145 mm navy guns modèles 1887, 1891², 1893 and 1910 were also mounted on similar mountings in 1917 and 1918. They were used on auxiliary cruisers, great merchant vessels ans sloops.
To distinguish the mountings:
-90 and 120 had a only one great recuperator cylinder.
-155 had three cylinders (a small brake cylinder between the two great size recuperator cylinders).
-14 cm and 145 mm had four recuperator cylinders.
Yours sincerely,
Guy François.

Hi Andrzej, your photo shows an Italian gun, a 149/35 A Armstrong for installation in cupolas (turret) of the fortifications type "Rocchi ". The photo was taken during WW1, when this type of gun was taken from the forts and used as heavy field artillery. Now I am away from home, tomorrow I put a drawing of the turret with this gun.
