Default One for Stellan

I believe the truck is a Chev. What is the artillery tractor?

Default Pavesi

If I remember right the tractor is an Italian-made m/28 Pavesi. The gun towed is a 7,5 cm AA gun m/27. The staff car is marked A 9.

A 9 = Kungl. Karlsborgs Artilleriregemente (9th Arty Regt) wich was an AA Arty Regt.

Default 9th Artillery Regiment

The regiment was formed 1st January 1928. Looking closer on Bills picture in the first post I have to make a few corrections.

The tractor is not an original Pavesi m/28 but the Swedish built (NOHAB) version m/28 F. The gun should be a ptototype m/29 wich came in series-version as m/30. Max speed 25 km/h.

The rekognoceringsbil (recce car) could possibly be built on a 1929 A-Ford chassis.

Stellan:
You are, of course, correct, the staff car I posted at the top picture is a Ford, not a Chev.
Your last picture appears to me to me an early 1930's International Harvester. The bonnet design and the maker's name plate on the bonnet are very typical of IH vehicles of that era.
Nice shot, by the way.
Bill
