Can you post model/id of each piece? I am away from home so I don't have my references handy, the first looks like a 7.7 cm FK 16, second like a WW I minenwerfer. What about the third gun, something of soviet origin?

Hi Massimo

the first one is a Canon de 75 mle GPII, its a rebarreled (?) version of the 77mm Fk16. This was done after WWI on pieces donated Wink by the Germans.
The second is an Austrian-Hungarian 22.5mm minenwerfer made by Bohler-Kapfenberg
The thirth is a Russian D-20.

More to come
