Listed as 76mm anti-aircraft guns maybe so, but those guns look like 3.3inch 85mm, based on the photos I have. But I'm just taking a guess here. The 85mm gun was later used in the T-34/85 tank and the SU-85 assault guns.

Both weapons look similar the barrel length for the 76mm gun was 150inches and the barrel length for the 85mm gun was 176inches These weapons remained in service after WWII and served with Warsaw Pact forces into the 1970s.

Probably NOT 85mm, no muzzle-brake fitted.
