Default Small anti tank gun of German origin?

Hi, saw this recently on a street in Hungary, I believe the Russians had a similar version of the German 3.7 anti tank gun with spoked wheels, I wonderd if the gun shown here is of German origin fitted with a larger calibre gun by the Russians or even by the Hungarians? Anyone any thoughts or knowledge of what we have here? Regards David.

That's a Soviet M1942 (M-42) 45mm anti-tank gun.

The Soviet 45-mm anti-tank gun of a sample of 1932 was result of imposing of a 45-mm trunk on the gun carriage of the German 37-mm anti-tank gun of a sample of 1931 — the license copy of the gun of Reynmetall.
In the photo the Soviet 45-mm anti-tank M-42 gun with the increased trunk length.

Default Thanks.

Again thanks for tha info, I think the gun is there as a memorial to Gabor Aron who successfully produced cannon and gunpowder during the 1848 revolution against the Austrian Empire. Regards David.
