Hi Rifleman.
Yes, the gun drawn is the initial M119, with a strong external resemblance of the british gun than the later (from A2) models. For my untrained eye, the only difference is in the breech. I think that the muzzle brake is the most noticiable difference (at least al FD scale level ;) ) between M119 and M119A3. Cheers.

The next gun was the mainstay of the soviet counterbattery artillery during the Cold War years, the excellent M-46.

First shown as it was seen in the May Parade of 1965, with the ATS-59 artillery tractor. The egyptian gun is depicted as it was at the Sinai Peninsula in the previous days of the 6 Day War. To the right is the drawing of an indian gun in the Western Front during the Third Indo-Pakistani War, during the crucial battle of Basantar, with fierce artillery barrages of both sides. The next gun is the chinese version Type 59, as seen during the Sino-Vietnamese War of 1979. In 1981 there was a short lived frontier clash between Peru and Ecuador, a very limited confrontation in the rain forrest, but peruvians M-46 were moved to the northen coast in the event of a further flare up. In 1988 there was a violent battle at Cuito Cuanavale during the closing stages of the War in Angola, with intense artillery duels between M-46 cuban guns and South African G-5 and G-6 guns. Finally, ex-syrian guns in hands of kurds rebels, during the battle for Kobani against ISIS, last year. Cheers.

Good afternoon.

A modern and light 105 mm artillery: OTO Melara M-56. In british and Commonwealth service was known as L5. Is seen in mountain units in several South American countries, often with an Unimog truck as primary mover, and was the backbone of the Argentine artillery during the Falklands War. Thanks for your feedback, adenandy! Cheers.

Thanks, rifleman! I think that it was also used by british artillery in Aden and Oman.
This is the Blakely heavy muzzle loaded rifled gun 450 pounder.

Captain Theophilus Blakely did not had a foundry of its own, so he relied on differents foundries for his guns. That is tha reason of the different external appeareance of the surviving Blakely 11 inch guns (in Callao, a Vavasseur one; and several Blakely Ordnance, Preston & Fawcett, and Forrester in the United States). Cheers.
