Albanian artillery WW1

I have a question regarding the use of Skoda guns in the Albanian gendarmerie in 1913/14.

Enclosed a picture of three pieces with Dutch officers leading the gendarmerie (Albanian ranks: capt Fabius and Lt Col Thomson, later KIA).

Are these indeed Skoda's and if so, what models? These are not mentioned in Kosar. The guns are reminscent however to the 7,5 cm M11 R Gebirgskanone.

Other internet sources suggest in WW2 the Albaninas still had eight Skoda 7,5 cm L13s. so that maybe another clue.

What else did the Albanians have in WW1? I read Krupp M1906 7,5 cm L/27, former Italian?
