Rick thanks for the help, I had no idea, last night I was looking at old Fort Knox pics from the 70's and I found this...
it turns out to be a 10cm Skoda Field howitzer 14/19 according to the US Army...

AJ, I just tried to come close to it in the internet, nowhere near it! 100mm lfh Skoda 14-19. Any idea if its still at Knox or was sent to Benning? I'm no artillery expert, but I did manage to photograph and recently post some APG, MD, artillery photos on my flickr account. Rick

I saw your post just after you posted the slide. I would identify the gun, I am familiar with it.

You can see one in Belgrade:

Thanks Rick, Great pics.... I have photos from when that museum was on Long Island back in 1990. I seem to be starting a archival collection of what used to be in the United States. I wonder if anyone will ever see the things we were lucky enough to get to visit, Patton Museum, Aberdeen, Littlefields all gone.

AJ2, Watch flickr now and then I'll post some older photos from APG. I wish I could have see Patton Museum or Littlefield, but it was always a matter of hobby verses raising my daughters and I made right choice! Now, I just try to get to the few and far between armor displays. Rick
