Default Re: Czechoslovak OOB37 and Slovak OOB01

Thanks for taking my suggestions under consideration.

While working on colour pictures, I've discovered, that, surprisingly, Czechoslovakia didn't use generic 81mm Stokes-Brandt 74 8cm Mortar Sec. It is not in inventory at http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...roce-1927.html and http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...zari-1938.html
Czechoslovakia used older 9cm vz.17 mortar instead http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...met-vz.17.html - range only 1920 m, HE kill might be 13, like Japanese weapon #221
(photo http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...17/45.jpg.html)

Also heavy mortar 14cm vz.18 could be added http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...met-vz.18.html - range 2650 m, used in separate units (4-mortar batteries) in 1930-39
photo http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191.../m-vz.jpg.html

Some leftovers from previous files:

81 37mm KPUV vz 37 -
According to http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...uv--vz.37.html, first guns were accepted by the Army in 12/37 (now 1/37).

90 76mm Field Gun - maybe it's worth to give it original Army designation 8cm Field Gun? http://www.delostrelectvocsarmady191...non-vz_30.html

91 100mm Howitzer - icon is the same as 76mm gun above, best seems 2116 with thicker barrel (although it was a bit shorter, than 76mm gun on unified carriage - 2.5m vs 3m. Icon 2170 has the same carriage, but might have too thin barrel).

Same for Slovak unit 91

183 152mm Battery - Soviet origin weapon, should be renamed from vz.10 (range has been corrected to Soviet M-10 or D-1 howitzers). The photo 2590 is used for Soviet M-10... but in fact it is most probably ML-20 long-range gun-howitzer (Soviet OOB 123 and 145 units might have this photo changed to real M-10 photo 23258).

So I suggest to rename weapon to M-10 (vz.38) and change photo to 23258 - or make it better ML-20 gun-howitzer (vz.37) with range 207.

(BTW: most typical late-war Soviet "short" howitzer would be D-1 vz.43, with the same range 202 and previous drawing 114)

189 76mm AT-Gun - it's rather improbable, that Soviet allies would receive in 1943 pre-war obr.1936 (F-22 L/51) guns (largely lost in 1941) - most probable would be standard ZiS-3 obr.1942 (like Soviet unit 281)

Cars:

139 Tatra T93 - it's best to change it back to Praga AV, since we have generic 137 Tatra Staff Car, covering all models of six-wheel Tatras, while we have no Praga. There is a photo 23170 or 22214 of Praga AV.

Same photo should be for Slovak unit 139 (Praga AV)

That's probably all this time.

That's OK, take your time.

Since I'm done with pictures, I'll tidy up my notes and add some more suggestions on other countries in following months. If you find time, you can check them, otherwise just ignore. But don't shoot at the messenger

I forgot to add, that T93 wasn't used by Chechoslovak army at all - only produced for Romania during he war.
