Post subject: Roma, Cecchignola

"Museo della motorizzazione dell'Esercito" it's the exact name, it translate to something like "Army's motorization museum", so it's not just about AFV. It has a large amount of soft-skins, many AFVs and a bunch of artillery as well.

Below there is some artillery, pictures were taken back in 1998, before I "went digital". I left out the more common pieces, like 25 pdr or 40 mm Bofors.

Let's start with a 100/17 mod 1914. A former austro-hungarian gun, made by Skoda during WW I. It was better than the italian counterpart, so, after 1918, was adopted by the italian army in large quantities (together with other Skoda guns, like the 75/13 mountain howitzer).

It was still in active service during WW II.



The 149 mm mod 1914 was another formerly austro-hungarian gun, used by the italians in WW II:



I already talked about 75/27 mod 1911 on my post on Catania's museum (we will see it again in Rovereto):



The 90/53 instead was a state of the art gun, up to the level of the german 8.8 cm. It's the same gun mounted on the Semovente stored at APG. It was also mounted on Lancia 3RO, an heavy italian truck, the combination was pretty impressive.

At the time I visited the museum the 90 mm was stored in a place that made photographing very hard:
