Skoda 75mm mountain gun was one of the standard mountain guns of WW2. In fact , till the arrival of US pack howitzer it was the most dominant piece of mountain artillery.
This picture illustrates the variety of this small howitzer. First two in the row are Austrian guns in 'red drab' and 'green drab'. Next, painted in light gray is the German WW1 version. This gun was added to number of infantry units on Western Front and used in the same way as French and Austrian trench guns.
Next is the shieldless version as used by Italians in WW2 in Africa, and two German WW2 versions to the right in 'yellow drab' and 'panzer gray'.
Romanian, Polish, Italian version in 'Italian drab' are still missing...
In background are 2 small Italian tanks (scratch build by yours truly) and Austro-Daimler armored car...
Many thanks to Mr. Normano.
