German use probably, but I suspect not a German manufactured weapon. The limber wheels (1st photo) for the barrel carrige just seem not right for German heavy artillery.

I would hazard a Czech 21cm; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/21_cm_Kanone_39.

Sorry but that's the best I can do.

To be frank I can't tell the difference between the two guns.

I suspect that the main difference was the barrel, like with the US 155mm Gun M1 and 8"/203mm Howitzer M1 sharing very much the same carriage.
