Etienne,

There seems to be a muzzle brake at the end of the gun barrel which would make the gun a 5 cm KwK L/60.

Expired ebay.com picture of a 5 cm KwK L/60 in a concrete emplacement taken by a US soldier in September 1945 around Cherbourg. The landscape in the background suggests that it was taken on Landfront Cherbourg.
