Post subject: D-74 or Type 59-I ?

These guns were originally identified as 130mm Type 59-I guns, but someone later identified them as 122mm D-74. What is the difference between a D-74 and a Type 59-I?

LE: the last gun has a different gun shield, it's a Type 59-I, right?

OK, so these guns are definitely Type 59-I:

This means that the last gun I've posted is a Type 59-I, while the first two were D-74. I think this gun description is also wrong, this is not a D-74 (album name) or D-30 (description plate): svsm.org/gallery/122mm_d74/DSCN0905

Now, I need to find someone that speaks Chinese to find out if the Type 59-I was based on M-46 (most sources say so) or it's just a D-74 with a 130 mm barrel.

LE: I'm again confused by this gun on display at Mink World in China: www.flickr.com/photos/...040797475/ It has the gun shield of the first two artillery pieces I've posted.
