Towed artillery in photograph are 76mm Model 1936
these weapons were used in divisional artillery batteries.


Weapon next to the 76mm artillery piece is a Model 1910 7.62 x 54 Caliber. Machine gun with shield, weapon was water cooled with a water jacket around the barrel,it was crew served, belt fed. In photo you can see ammo boxes and the rest looks like junk
