Dear all,
First of all I must say that I am not a expert through the artillery and therefore, at the request of his Polish colleagues, I would like to find out some facts regarding the 100 mm light howitzers delivered Škodovými races Pilsen to Yugoslavia and Romania. Their artillery was just armed, among other these imported strength. In Romania bore the designation vz. 34 and in Yugoslavia, perhaps the model 28. The Czech designation of these export versions should be the EF 1 or EF, or perhaps F1 - F3. Líšily these models in some way from the howitzers from the armament of the czechoslovak. army and how many there were in each of the countries exported?
Thank you for the reply..

So perhaps it's a bit objasním

10 cm field howitzer Model 1928,delivered to Yugoslavia is directly derived from the project, which has commissioned Yugoslavia for Damages in Pilsen and was conducted under the project designation of FE in the years of 1926-1927.
The gun was delivered during the year 1929 and up to 72 ks.

Romania went the cannon in two waves
In the years 1931-35 type of FE 1 and in the years 1937-39 and the war type F2.

Otherwise the parameters of the gun are identical with vz.30.

Otherwise the barrel of the cannon was made of monoblock and autofretovaná.

Otherwise, a colleague has a bug here in the nomenclature of the guns, in Romania, should the designation of 10 cm field howitzer Model 1930.

10 cm field howitzer Model 1934 is too howitzers from the Skoda, but it is a modernized howitzer vz.1916/19, upgrading you conduct yourself..
