Bangladesh Military Museum - Dhaka (Bangladesh)
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

The 15cm howitzer and the 10 cm Kanone used the same chassis, only the barrel is different. It's very easy to confuse the two. That's why I am not sure about the gun in Bangladesh.

As an example, the picture below, from Sofia, show a 10 cm Kanone on the foreground and a 15 cm Haubitze in the background:

I'll go with the 10cm.
Even though the slide appears to be missing from the top of the lower recuperator housing, the taper of the rear part of the barrel and the recuperator cap configuration seem to indicate the smaller caliber gun.

Maybe it was brought to the area as a WWII trophy, back when it was still a colony.

I think we have seen some WWII trophies in India (a SdKfz 231 at least), but not that many.

I know that China had some of the 150mm, so I wonder if it's a bit of booty from one of the China/Pakistan border skirmishes?

I wondered that too. Do we have any idea if the Chinese ever got the 10 cm K18 too? Wikipedia doesn't reports it, but it's not the ultimate sources for such kind of information.

Note that for some strange formatting reason, the left hand picture is the one in Dhaka, the right hand one's the 150mm version!
The barrel looks a bit slimmer to me.

The front end of the barrel from the 10cm is longer than the 15cm.

Dear Colleagues,
I refer to electronic translation of the Bengali text that appears above the photos:

১০৫/৫৪ সিএম ক্রুপ গান
১৯৩৭ সালে জার্মানীতে তৈরী কামান। দ্বিতীয় বিশ্বযু্দ্ধে এই অস্ত্রটি ব্যবহৃত হয়েছিলো।

105/54 CM Croup Music
Cannon made in Germany in 1937. The weapon was used in the second bisbayuddhe.

Croup Music = field gun (Bengali allegory about)

bisbayuddhe = World War (confidence 9 out of ten)
