Ok, now I'm thinking if it's larger than a 105 and usually expressed in inches it could be 5 inch (that shell in your pic isn't a normal artillery round) rocket launcher??? This is a tough one! Good pick Boonierat, I'm still stumped!

Looks like we have a winner The M98 Howtar was used only by the Marine Corps in Vietnam. It was a 4.2-inch Mortar mounted on a 75mm Pack Howitzer carriage, and each direct support battalion had a battery of 6.

Since no one has seemed to notice my gun, I'll reveal what it is: it's a 12-pounder used by the Royal Canadian Artillery in the late 1800s against the Boers.

OK name this:

Hint: some of the first panzer casualties suffered by the Wehrmacht in WWII were inflicted by this gun.

The Polish wz.36, 37mm anti-tank gun designed by Bofors in the early 1930's.

Correct. Great gun. It doesn't look much but in 1939 you didn't need a huge artillery piece to destroy the tank. Massive armor plates did not appear until mid-war.
