Hi all,

I have a small doubt about these Russian howitzers. 122mm M1909 or 122mm M1909-30 ? :?
According to my information the 122mm M1909-30 had a muzzle brake. The howitzers of my image would be 122mm M1909 howitzers, therefore.
Is this correct?

Sturm78,

I agree with you these guns look like 122 mm M1909. :?

Hi all,

Can anybody identify these two Russian artillery pieces?

Image 1: I think 152mm Br-2
Image 2: 280mm Br-5 ?? :? There are very few wartime photos of the 280mm Br-5 and it's hard for me to distinguish it from 203mm Br-4

I knew I've seen this picture before! The same picture appears in Weapons And Warfare VOL.12 and it states that your second picture is a 203mm M1931.

Sturm78,

I think it's a 152 mm L/45 Canet.
