I recently came across photos of the K 418(f) on the eastern front (specifically around Leningrad), which is new information to me. Does anyone have information on the use of this gun on the eastern front?

Thanks
Nezar

I have kind of different question about 15,5cm Stg.Gr 423(f) shells.
How they found their way to Estonia?
I know that Germans used these captured cannons and shells in Africa etc, but is there any information about that they used them on the Eastern front during the war? Blockade of Leningrade?
And how and when these 15,5cm shells came to Estonia?

Any ideas?
