A guess would be a barrel for a German 150 or 170mm gun/howitzer.
They were carried in separate loads over distance because the weight was too great for horse teams. Even with mechanized transport it was easier to transport them that way also.

mmm I see, you mean "Lafette" which means carriage in English (affût in French) I guess.
Not sure about the type/caliber but yes it is transported in two pieces, like the French 220mm Schneider on this photo :
