A few of the pieces that were previously "behind the fence" but have been put in open storage near the restoration facility in the last year or so...

I dont have the identification readily handy, so consider this an ID quiz!

Hi Neil,

I am into the more modern artillery (cold-war era). Are there any examples of D30s or M-46s, or Type 59-Is in that collection?

Yes, question is did I photograph them. In general, the more common pieces are on display outside the museum itself. Its the more exotic pieces that have been in storage...

I'll try to post some more pics on another thread (keeping with the 10 pictures/thread limit).

#5 should be an LG42.

M9ACE, I have quite a few pics of Russian/Soviet artillery do we have anyone that can ID these? If so I will post some more that need to be identified.......

Hi Neil!

I think the top one (gun on the right of the photo) might be a 122mm Gun M-55 D-74.

The lower one with the four tires could be a 203mm Gun Howitzer M-55.

ID based on poor drawing/photos in "The Warsaw Pact Armies" by Friedrich Wiener and William J Lewis.
