The main guns of Visby (120mm L/50 Bofors M1924) and Blyskawica (120mm L/50 Bofors M1934/36) look identical.

The Poland navy ordered those guns from Bofors in 1934. Visby class destroyers were built in 1942. 

So I wonder if M1924 and M1934 are of an exactly same model, or Bofors was providing outdated weapon model for their home country?

BTW Visby is using M1936 shells in-game while Blyskawica's shell name was not shown.
