Thanks, Thekees

I had my doubts but I'm not sure if it's a bomb either..... :?

On the other hand, here another image with various types of artillery shells. Probably Austro-hungarian ammunition from WWI
Is anyone encouraged to try to identify them?... :roll:

Here another image from Ebay. According to photo caption, 80cm K (E) rail gun ammunition.. :? ...Is this correct ?

I think Kees is right, it's a bomb, not a shell.
Tallboy in my opinion.
See for comparison:

Looks like ammo for the WW1 French "flying pig" trench mortar. Although i know only the 240 mm version, and these mortars seems to look smaller in diameter.

Hi Gzesio,

that could be a Panzer III without the turret. Here a pic of such a Panzer III, also used for the transport of ammunition (source of the pic: Waffen-Arsenal Band 4 " Panzer III - Sturmgeschütz III" by Uwe Feist.

Regards

Bert
