From left to right, we have the Anti-Tank Gun, Fort Gun, and AA Gun. Pre-war and post war are indistinguishable as far as I know. Best way to tell is the boxes, or so I've heard. Really powerful spring on these things, I'd hate to be the cap that went in them!

I don't understand the scale on these though, much too big for English (Britians), but work well with the American (Barclay/Manoil) and German (Elastolin/Lineol/ etc.). Just thought that was odd.
