Hi Christer,

text on the picture:

24 cm S.K. L. 40 in

Bettungsschießgerüst

And that is the 24cm Schnellladekanone L/40 in a firing platform

Please see here:

In the first link you can find the word: "Bettungsscheissgerüst)", but please believe me, that is not the correct name. :D It is also a firing platform, but not so immense. :sleep:

Haha, Bettungs-"scheiß"-gerüst... That´s great... I hope, such a piece will never be invented...

Well, back to the photo. The links are going to a railway-gun. First (in 1916), the 238mm L/40, was used in a bedding, later it came up upon a railway-wagon
