Hi Sturm,
yes it is a 76/45 S1911 in a nice winter photograph; the age of the soldier and the black collar of his shirt indicate that he is a soldier of the territorial anti-aircraft defense M.A.C.A., (Milizia Artiglieria Contro Aerei) which was in charge of all 76/45 (and also all the 76/40 anti-aircraft) .

Regards, Shultz

Nobody for my last image ?

Well, here another image from Ebay. I found a similar image in Ansaldo archives titled as "Vickers 80mm" AA gun ?? 8O :?
Any information about this gun ??

Have found another picture of this factory and it must be the Bofors factory, not Ansaldo. That means the gun is a Bofors, not Siderius :)
Learning and progressing all the time...

Hi,
it is a 76/45 , with only one cylinder above the barrel, and in front of it a small lifting ring; while the 102/35 always have three cylinders above the barrel, more or less long.
