The ultimate evolution of the original 10 cm is visible here:


105 mm mod. 1961 by Massimo Foti, on Flickr

After WW II the italian army updated these guns. They were rechambered to 105 mm (to use standard NATO ammo), got a muzzle brake, a Hogg Device and entered service as 105/22 mod 1961.

The Museum owns plenty of light anti-tank guns. It wasn't easy for me to identify all the variants based on Rheinmetall 37 mm design, the soviet 37 mm and 45 mm guns made the job error prone. I would love to get help on this. If you feel you may like to review all of them, start from here:

Thanks in advance

This beautifully preserved gun is identified as "105 mm 98/09 Krupp" used by Turkish Army during Balkan Wars and WW I:


105 mm 98/09 Krupp by Massimo Foti, on Flickr

I am afraid the Museum is wrong on this. Wikipedia talks about this model as an howitzer, with a much shorter barrell:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...itze_98/09

Any help on this?

The 105 mm 98/09 Krupp topic 28 may 2012
I think is a Skoda 105 mm mountain gun model 1939 Skoda D9
without shield and with steel italian wheels, similar to the 75/42 mod 34 or 35. Probably used by the italians?
