Yes, it is a AA version of the 7,5 mm Mle 1897 gun on the rare Mle 1939 platform (about 20 available in April 1940), a lighter version than the better known Mle 1915 platform installed in a large pit (about 15 still remaining in service in April 1940).

Thank you very much for your help, Emmanuel.

Do yo have any other image of this gun/platform?

It is curious that the french were mounted the old 75mm Mle 1897 barrel on new mounts in 1930s 8O

The barrel on the top picture is the Mle 1928 from Schneider. Several French AA guns featured the Mle 1897 barrel at the beginning and were then modernized with the Mle 1928 barrel e.g. 75 mm CA Mle 1930 and 75 mm CA Mle 17/34.

The picture of Sturm is on the Port-Louis Citadel, Lo360. I trust the 7,5 were in 43/44 placed under concrete (A SK and a R671).

Also on the same picture, it looks like a 3,7 cm Flak in the background.

Absolutely Manu, it is a one. There were at least 2 pieces of 3,7 cm Flak there.
