Hi all,

I am not sure about these guns. Captured 152mm Canet M1892 Soviet railway guns ??

Hi Sturm,

The guns look like the 152mm Canet M1892 railway guns we discussed in the MKB Bluecher thread here:
viewtopic.php?f=70&t=184717&start=15

According to the book "Railway Guns of World War II", Latvia mounted 5 of its 6 in. (152 mm) Canet coastal guns on old Russian flat cars in 1937-38. After invaded Latvia, Russia incorporated these guns in the 2 MzHDAB. Then Germany invaded Latvia in 1941 and captured the guns from the Red Army.

Thank you very much for your answer....Emmanuel
It seems that Soviets retired the shields to these guns...

From what I could find, the Latvian Army had 4 of the 152 mm railway guns with no shield and just one with shield.

Hi all,

An interesting image from Ebay. 38cm SK L45 Max railway guns from WW1.
In the image can be seen 6 o 7 guns. I think the total number manufactured were 8 guns in 1918.
Probably concentrated awaiting destruction after WWI.
