Response to Some old thoughts from 2012 on this weapon

 

Thanks but on the other hand, Stellan Bojerud came to the conclusion that those 8 Bofors guns were "75mm L/20 M/1929 Mountain Guns (ex-Turkey)ordered 1934 delivered 1934". As for "L12", it was length of 75mm barrel of 75mm/47mm twin-barreled gun! Unfortunately I haven't Kosar's books and I've never seen Bofors guns with similar carriage...
BTW. Do you have any images of "7.5cm Gebirgskanone L/16 Rheinmetall M1910" (Turkey acquired a battery of these guns for testing)?

I have found the small photo of another Thai gun. The caption says that photo is dated 1929 and taken from Chulachomklao Military Academy site. I can only say that the gun has box trail carriage and could be Bofors mountain gun...
