  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.

    • 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.
