Two for the price of one. Italian motorcycle combinations I've never seen before, and guns mounted on trucks that I can't remember seeing, but we might have had them before.

Any idents?

The vehicles pictured are examples of the Autocannone DA 102/35.  The weapon system was permanently pedistal mounted.

Well done, Jack. Thank you.

I should have noticed there's one of these in the gallery, by Luis Gagos.

There are (hair-raisingly expensive) 1/35 kits of the 102/35.

The trail you started me on led to some excellent pics and info, and eventually to identifying the motorcycle. It's a Frera - see pic below.

Brilliant site on the Italian Front with pics of v. interesting stuff and a section on uniforms (Ital, Ger, A-H):
