    Greetings, and welcome to the forum.

    You've misread the line in your last photo- below the 6349, which is the case model identification code, it's s. 10cm K. 18, which identifies your weapon- the s 10cm K18, 10cm schwere Kanone 18, a heavy howitzer. That's the nice thing about German large caliber munitions- the weapon is marked on the case so it's immediately identifiable...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Ah, well yes, this really is supposed to be a WWII forum with a little WWI and other eras- 1997 isn't exactly 'historical' LOL That being said, the USSR section is formally listed as going all the way to its end in 1991- so I guess since you've already done a WWII piece, just continuing with something modern isn't exactly terrible- you're not starting a new thread for it afterall. So go ahead... The diameter of the case mouth will tell you the calibre of course and with a relatively minimal variety of weapons of each calibre in use in the late '90s, I'd think it not too hard to find out what you have.
