    Unrelated to the quiz, and this might end up being a give-away if answered now so please feel free to disregard until a convient time if necessary...

    The wheels nearest the barrel look very much like train wheels to me, is it supposed to be rail mounted or transported?

    Question

    NOT part of this quiz, BUT, can anyone tell me anything about the field piece amongst my 'Brian.S711 collection', the one with Eddy and 711 posing on it, the one with the rubber cut from the wheels, please?
    (Have just noticed my 'Mickey Mouse' promotion, so NOT me, especially a US one,PLEASE take it away!)

    I think that this is an illusion caused by the angle you see it at - the wheels have a steel rim, with a thick rubber 'solid tyre' outside of that. On this gun it seems that this is narrower than the steel rim, and this gives the impression of train-type wheels.

    Hi.

    Bingo.

    The type 4 75 mm aa-gun was also modified to the type 5 75 mm tank gun used on the type 4 and 5 tank prototypes and the type 5 tank destroyer Na-To.

    I have to admit, I googled, but one of the pictures gave a hint with a tropical looking building in the background (and a bicycle -- another hint)

    I'll pass due to lack of suitable images
