Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Can anyone tell me what this device is used for? (not the M109...)
My guess was a calibration device for the gun?

It is what it looks like, a giant suppressor the side chambers are to deal with the blast.

By all accounts it is based at Meppen.

Yep, the German caption says "sound supressor" and claims it to be "immensely effective".
