Ottoman artillery at Gallipoli, 1915.
The original caption lists these guns as “torpedo artillery”, which I’m not really sure what is. They look like some ungodly combination of mountain gun and mortar, and whilst I had a quick look to try and find out what kind of gun they were there isn’t all that much on Ottoman artillery. They look sort of like some Austrian guns from the turn of the century, which is plausible, but I’d really like to know what they are.
