I am not sure about exact version though, but the one captured by Poles looks very similar.

I thought it would be a easy one. Here are the various markings on it.

Hmm... a 15 kilo projectile translates to 40 rpm. What were the projectile weights of the cannon with high RoF?

It would be enough to say the gun was made to have RoF of French 75, although with heavier shell.

A lot of options for 105mm weapons tho I recall a 120mm cannon. Possible but not likely it was a 155mm with 40+ kilo projectiles.

Well, French 75 had RoF around 15 RPM, and 600+/15 gives more than 40kg, so it is very likely that mistery gun was 155mm.
