#2 is a swiss 10,5 cm Haubitze 1946/91:

Where is the first picture located? I can see Pz 68s in the background.

#1 Looks very similar to a "85 mm vz 52" I saw in Lesany, I am just not sure if it's a soviet design or a Skoda one.

Wink I know, I was a volunteer in this museum. If my information are correct, the Pz 68 and Pz 68/88 were exchanged for a complete, but not running M7B2 Priest, with the museum in Thun/Reuenthal.

hello,

here is the M7B2, I took this photo in 1999 :


Not sure it is the same one then, the mudguards are very different...
Is it possible that the M7B2 went to another museum in Switzerland?

I just checked my archive. The info panel in Full says the M7B2 came from Germany.
I am not aware of any Swiss Museum that own a M7B2. Could be a private collector maybe?
