    Yikes thats hard... Have you got any bigger pictures?

    I'm guessing from the two pairs of wheels that its the US 155mm M1 cannon, or the post war variant the M59

    I am sorry I haven't got a bigger picture.

    Because of the small picture a hint: it is not of american or western origin.

    Think the photo is too small so here's the answer

    It's the CIS FH2000 gun.

    methinks there is either a misplaced decimal point or mm should be involved. Otherwise its a high-angle, man-portable Dora!
