Here is a picture of Tun antitanc DT-UDR 26 (Resita), calibrul 75 mm, model 1943, a little modified. I received this picture from a Romanian soldier I am serving with in Iraq. It was taken in Timisoara, Romania.

Hallo Lorenzo :beer:

This weapon is one of a pair outside of the Officers club in central Timisoara, Timis County, both well known, and photographed by myself as the building was used over the last 5 years for the Collectors Fair, time permitting, as I am getting set to head off on holiday I will dig out and post some shots (but thinks I already posted pictures before of them on the Forum.) :unsure: Interestingly one of them seems to have been hit (but no penetration) by a burst of machine gun fire on the splinter shield, the indentations being visible when you catch the light at a certain angle.

The yellow sign on the gun shield is not military related but a peace sign representing this area as a point of interest connected to the Peoples Revolution of 1989.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
