Sofia. National museum of military history

That elevation drive looks like Krupp - the 15cm sFH 93 has the same elevation drive but it's two sided with two elevation wheels.

Maybe a Krupp 12cm howitzer from the early 1890s?

Regards,

Charlie

I had the impression it was pretty much looking like a Krupp design too, but I don't have any info to confirm that.

Thanks

Massimo

Lately I have been busy with my full-time job, but I will keep things moving, albeit at a slower speed.

Great photos as always! How's new job going? I interviewed for a job up in Pennsylvania, on Friday, kind of near Carlisle where I did Tank research years ago. I was hoping to go to VA to visit & photo the Museum there, but got sick with a cold after interview! Still might try to go there at months end. For my current photos visit my account at flickr. (brick6757). Rick

Need to id this howitzer. It has a "Krupp" look, may be 120 or 150 mm:

So far I think it's a former Turkish piece. Very similar to the Finnish one:
