    yeah its the OVP 1915
    nice one i rep you

    "Revelli applied for patents for the design on 8 April 1914, and subsequently assigned the patents to the Villar-Perosa company. The weapon was used by the Italian airforce and army during the First World War. Reportedly it was more successful in the ground role, as the pistol calibre bullets did not have sufficient striking power for bringing down aircraft.
    A large number of the ground version of the weapon fell into the hands of German and Austrian forces following the Italian defeat at the Battle of Caporetto. As many soldiers found the weapon impractical, the Beretta firearm manufacturer cannibalized surviving examples to be converted into two single-barreled shoulder-fired weapons in 1918. Called the Beretta Model 1918, these weapons would see occasional battlefield use and are believed to account for the dearth of complete Villar Perosas today. The Italians produced a version called the OVP, which was basically a Villar-Perosa split in two. There was no grip forward of the magazine, so soldiers had to make do with whatever they could find."
    interesting gun design if a little bit flawed,

    It looks a mix of trebuchet remains and a bombard......
    What kind of things it does?

    Cannot see much space for moving the components, but the pendulum-esque thing looks like it's supposed to be movable......
    How to use it? Is it raised up when used and shoot something?

    Kinda, the picture is the gun,

    A pit would be dug and another tractor towing the base would arrive and the base would be positioned in the pit, the gun then fits the base.

    Never figured that how the Little David looks like as a whole - I thought it was stationary.

    Mons Meg. Built in Mons, Hainaut, Wallonia for Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy and gifted to King James II of Scotland with other artillery supplies to aid him against the evil English.

    Wallonians know how to make good guns.

    Flakpanzer 38(t) (or SdKfz.140) is correct. German 20mm AA gun on Panzer 38(t) chassis. 141 were built, most went to German units on the West Front.
