That looks like the old Soviet ML-20 152mm Howitzer dating from 1937 and a 61-K 37mm AAA variant , also dating from 1939..

Namibia still has a long way to go before building a basic defence capability. I wonder if the generals actually do tell the powers that be how antiquated the equipment (they are being asked to do the job with) is :oops: ...We(on a yearly basis) have people that complain about the MoD having the second highest budget allocation and how in their eyes the armed forces should be disbanded :lol:

Interesting to see the old traditional excercise equipment - pole, tyre and marble - still in use in Namibia.

I'm definitely convinced now that Chute Systems are also running some sort of Commando Selection course in Namibia
These photos were taken at the Namibian Naval base at the port of Walvis Bay
