Title: Please identify M109 with sort of device
Post by: stoffel on 20 September 2011, 20:31:36
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".
