Much bigger. Railroad gun I'd say. That's the loading platform. Crane behind him for lifting shells into the loading cradle.

Early test firings show that cats really do land on their feet........and chase their tail at the same time.

155mm is 6.1 inches. That looks somewhat bigger. The soldier looks to be British. I guestimate his sleeve cuff as 4 inches acros, the round could easily be 14" in diameter.

 

Wikipedia says the Brits had railway guns of 12, 13.5, 14 and 18 inches (and 9.2 but this looks to be bigger than that).

Let me guess...you tried to quote one of the earlier posts that had an image in it. If you quote it, then highlight and delete the image, then the text will show and you won't get that message. Just a glitch in the system.
