  1. Hi, the heavy AA guns in the photo which are being towed by the KRAZ-214 7 ton truck are actually 100mm KS-19s (note size of weapon and the length and shape of barrel and muzzle brake, as well as the seating positions for the crew). Fascinating photo collection.

    1. You are right, I analyzed it too fast and I didn’t focused on the recoil tubes. Thank you for the info, I’ll correct the caption right away.
