Νο, Ι am afraid not my friend Sturm78.
I am not a vehicle expert and therefore I do not have any photo, even though I think there are a couple of pictures with these trucks used for the 88mm Flaks.

More pictures of this 3,7 cm Flak gun on this thread:

http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 1#p1461541

I think we never concluded if the gun was a 3,7 cm Flak 39 (thirty-nine) or a Solothurn ST10-100. :?

Well, my friend Manuferey if we consider that Flak 39 had named after the year of design/introduction into service and at the same time the Hellenic Army ordered them in 1936/37 then we can consider that those were of Solothurn or Flak 18 model.

Idomeneas,

I thought that the "39" was just a following number in the designation for an export derivative of the Rheinmetall 3,7 cm Flak and not the year of design/introduction. :?

The Flak 18 had a dual-axle carriage so it could not be considered here.

Looks like a pre-war scene from a trials exercise with artillery tractors...judging from the dress code of the day, I'd say...

Neither i am convinced.

You sure it is Greek and before the war or on war? for the size seems a gun bigger than 3"(76mm)
