It is the Škoda 30.5 cm Mörser M.11

There were 2 later variants, but this looks like the original 1911 model.

Here is a photo with more clarity.  And one from Fort du Camp des Romains, one of the French forts besieged at the start of the war by the Germans and supported by the Austrian siege mortars (it wasn't only the Belgian forts).  This photo shows German (possibly Bavarian) troops mixed in with the Austrians.
