I would concur. The projectile would seem to be for the 274 mm family of French railway guns. The powder canister next to the projectile is clearly marked for the 274 mm gun and the projectile shows the 3 rotating bands common to the newer family of french artillery ammunition. I cannot identify the model of projectile.

Hi all,

30.5cm Skoda M16 ammo crates (30,5 cm Gr. M35)
I guess these shells were developed by Czech in 1930s. Does anyone know if these new shells improved the performances of the howitzer in terms of range?
