B-4 must have a ring-shaped thickening on the barrel, well seen here:

Based on its lack and also proportions of the barrel it's a 280-mm howitzer.

It's an earlier Soviet 15,2 cm howitzer ML-20 model 1937 (in German use as 15,2-cm-Kanonenhaubitze 433/1 (r)). The later specifications had pneu instead of steel wheels, a longer barrel and because of the higher weight of the barrel two typical "horns" (for suspension) - one of each side of the barrel.
The ML-20 was also used as weapon of the SU-152 and JSU-152.
