7.5cm WW1 case ID needed

Can anyone positively ID this brass/steel case and the projectile(s) that it was mated with (pictures attached). It is 75mm x 129mm with rim diameter of 84.5mm (ish) and is not cut down. It was made by Rhinemetal and also has their primer. It is dated 1918.

The closest fit I can find is 7.5cm Geb K model 1912 although it is very similar to the Geb K 15 Skoda case which is all brass. Was it an export case and used in Turkey? Any help would be appreciated and reference sources if available would be great.

Data say for mountain gun 75 mm Skoda 1915
for: Deutshe 7.5cm Gr
8cm Schr Autrian
75 mm Schr Austrian
They say separate case L 129 mm and don't say that It is in brass
Perhaps it could be it and you have seen the same datas
