Anyone care to try identifying all of these? Particularly the towed pieces, I think I have the SP in hand Wink

Neil,

The artillery on FT Sill's "Artillery Walk" is:

(1) German 7,7cm lFK 1896 n/A
(2) German 7,7cm lFK 1916
(3) German 10,5cm lFH 1898/09
(4) Austro-Hungarian piece
(5) German 10cm Kanone 1904
(6) German 10cm Kanone 1914
(7) German 10cm Kanone 1917 "Simson's Gun"
(8) German 15cm lg. sFH 1913

...the remaining pieces are US or later WW2 & Post-WW2 Era pieces.

Of the German Artillery most of these are in my collection plus a number of others.
