    Well, it is obviously part of some more elaborate fortification. The vegetation in the second image would suggest it is possibly somewhere in Northern Europe.
    As far as the designation of this weapon goes, however, I am at a loss

      I'll leave it for a while in case Vathra wants to jump in. Oh, and in this case, Northern Europe is correct.

          The one in Jersey is fully restored in its bunker, and is an unusual and interesting weapon.

                  • Does it help anyone if I say there were plans for a heating system to keep this weapon warm that involved live chickens?
