This is supposed to be a Dora barrel, as found by the US Army.

Just a bit of additional info: The Dora was also known as Schwerer Gustav. not to be confused with the Gustav.
Three were to be build. but only two were actually completed.

Ruegenwalde-Darlowo was the site of the test firing of Schwerer Gustav nummer Eins m. Seelenrohr nummer Zwei (gun no 1 with liner no 2.)
Test firings too place between 13-17 March 1943.
Four test rounds were fired.

Some sources state that 2 of the Doras were located at Kummersdorf.
That leaves one unaccounted for.
Could the one in my previous post account for the missing one?
