Lesany. Military Technical Museum
Permalink   


We've got already threads for Wien and Sofia museums, here is Lesany.

Unlike Sofia, Belgrade or Bucharest, I have proper identifications for almost everything here, but I still have a question or two, plus a large amount of pictures to share.

 

Let's start with the first mystery piece. So far I called it "Field gun on Ivanov mount":

4.7 cm 1901

10.4 cm China

9071971795_79fa8d7724_b.jpg

 

I am not 100% about the proper identification of this. So far I think it's a 10.4 cm Feldkanone M 15:

9071980587_b7e3ce2e17_b.jpg

 

Another export model. 10.5 cm Turkey:

I agree with your identification as a 10.4cm Kanone M15. The only other survivor I know about is at HGM in Vienna.

There are some images of the gun at HGM in Landships II.

Regards,

Charlie

15 cm M 14

15 cm M 1915

This one is a post-war gun, a bit OT, but I think it demonstrates like the Skoda's designs evolved:

26 cm Minenwerfer M 17

50 cm mortar. The picture's quality is low, but I am including it anyway since it's such a special and rare piece

Hi!
I can not understand 22 cm Minenwerfer M 15 it is 22.5 cm Bohler M15 or not?
Best regards!

I am not sure, but it looks different than other 22 cm I have seen elsewhere:

Final two pictures covering very interesting pieces:

107 mm gun M1910

9090776752_e540833017_b.jpg

 

Regarding this, I report Ilya's feedback:

This is not M1910 produced by Putilov Plant, but 4.2-inch (106.7 mm) modification of 10.5 cm Type 38 Japanese gun that were ordered by Russia in Japan during the WWI and designated there "42-line Japanese gun model of 1905". This specimen was captured by Czechoslovak legion during the Civil War in Russia. Another one is stored on the backyard of the Military-historical Museum of Artillery, Engineer and Signal Corps in St. Petersburg.

It's more interesting than that - the Japanese 10cm Type 38 was a modification of a Krupp 10cm export gun. The Russians evaluated the 10cm Krupp gun

before WW1 and chose the 107mm Schneider M1910 gun licence built by Putilov. Putilov's production of the 107mm gun was very slow to start in WW1 so the Russians

ordered 120 modified Japanese Type 38 guns as the 107mm M1905.

 There is apparently another 10.4cm Kanone M.15 in Budapest at their military museum, unfortunately it is stored outside.
