You're welcome, Snooks.

Thanks, Pat. Interesting info on this weird looking creation.

The lower part is an American M109 155mm Self Propelled Howitzer. The upper thingy is indeed a gigantic sound suppressor. Suppressors work by diffusing the sound, spreading it out over a longer time, which eliminates the sharpness of the report, and lowering the decibel level. The result is still loud, but the nature of the sound is changed to make it less recognizable and harder to fix directionwise. You get a "What was that?" reaction instead of "That was a shot and it came from over there!" reaction.

BTW, the muzzle blast of a 155 howitzer is incredibly powerful, so these suppressor elements must be extremely strongly built.

Also BTW all artillerymen are deaf, and are universally called Cannon Cockers, except when they are called Crazy Cannon Cockers, which is most of the time.

Think Sally had it right. A silencer for the gun.

Maybe it's a way to quickly transport large tanks (as in, things that hold large quantities of liquid) over difficult obstacles. So, tank-fired tanks? :)
Tanks?
You're welcome!

Well, PG, are we calling a truce and there isn't even a war? Rather liked the looks of the thing.
Don't have to run, Jan. Not aimed at anyone.

No one, Patti. Don't think so, gemstone. Just a funny looking gun.

Perhaps it's a rocket launcher to the newly-discovered planet, Lelabuga???

Wow, I guess the owner rules the neighborhood!?

Wow Pat, okay I will never say it again. Please don't do it. I'll be a good girl.

I think it may be a giant bubble blower. Something to keep the fighting men and women occupied and entertained during lulls in the action. Might even be part of the health plan for the troops...decrease the stress...decrease the need for doctor visits... And then again...
