    It looks almost identical to the Austrian Boehler 4.7-cm AT gun, which was in service mainly with the italians and Germans in early WW2, perhaps Finland bought some during the Russo-Finnish war in 1940.

    Hi you may be right , Korjattu is the Finnish word for repair or rework , so this gun would have been repaired or reworked by the Finnish company Tampello 27/3/42
