Enigmatic Romanian equipment

Post by steppewolf » 24 Apr 2019 13:08

In the link below is a list of equipment of Romanian 5th Cavalry Division in May 1944.


Some entries are curious.

Does anyone know at what type of carabine this document refers? Carabine A.U.

To my knowledge, the only type of carabine listed is the WW1 Mannlicher but this wasn't issued to frontline units in WW2. The number is consistent, 1757

Also P.M.Z.B is clearly the ZB light machine gun.

It is also listed at the first section a 30 (20?) mm anti tank rifle. What is it? Maybe a typo and it is in fact 20 mm Solothurn?

Thanks in advance!
