    Russian 12cm (?) case ID

    20200808_144158.jpg

    Another case for ID. Measures 120 x 934 x 146R in MM. Obviously Russian from the markings but I cannot identify which gun this is for. Any help appreciated. TIA.

    I see nothing in the markings that makes me think it is Russian.

    The opposite, classic Russian navy markings. Nice case, is in my reference list but unknown designation.
    Ignorance is bliss.

    Thanks Charley. Any information on its use or the type of projectile used?
