  1. I believe that’s a Meter-Bore Shell from the Krupp Cannon “Carl Gustav” in WWII. Propelling Charge is the Drum on the right. This Gun when fully Assembled, straddled a Double-Track Rail Line, and was sometimes referred to as “DORA” for Double Over Rail Artillery. The Gun had a Sleeve Bore for the Barrel that reduced it to 850 Millimeters for smaller, Long-Range Shells.
