Labelled as a "captured rocket gun"
theirishinamerica.com/...-soldiers/
Doesn't look very much like a rocket launcher to me, more like an elderly coastal defence piece that's been given wheels.

It is a gun carriage German 21 cm cannon K 39/40. Missing Barrel was transported to a separate vehicle. In 1941 factory Škoda produced 20 weapons of this type.

It's clearly not the complete gun. The barrel was on a separated load.

I have to double check (I am away from home) but maybe a 21 cm K 39/40 is in Sinsheim

Marvelous!
Doesn't look as if it was designed for mobility.

Swedish website Kustartilleriet states:

"Transport
Pjäsen delades tre enheter vid and transportation. Underlavett (Baddi) (14 tonnes), överlavett (16 tonnes) samt eldrör (17 tonnes). Ursprungligen drogs enheterna and dragterrängbil m/42, Avena kallad TVC och från 1948 and dragterrängbil 954 Brockway. "

For transport was divided into three units:
- gun-barrel on trailer (17 ton)
- gun-carriage on trailer (16 ton)
- firing platform on trailer (14 ton)

By 1948, used artillery tractors m/42, after Brockway type 954.

Artillery trailers has not been preserved.

Dear colleague,
weapon on display in the museum is not complete. Missing parts Replaced with dummy barrel & breech. Determine the type of weapon with Extremely Difficult, perhaps only to the manufacturing label. That Francev colleague says this is a prototype of the Skoda V2 (K39/41). Photographs from 2005-2007 Sinsheim have the figures "M40" (Skoda V1, K39/40).

There is another one in Sinsheim. Again, dummy breech and gun tube. The Museum says it's a 21 cm Skoda M40.
I don't even trust them on the caliber, it could be 24 cm instead... I would love to hear any feedback on it.

Dear Colleague,
older replica gun barrel was very thin! Perhaps was made from a lamppost. The current replica gun barrel follows the original dimensions. The chassis construction is not a school Skoda. Surely it is a kind of folk creativity of Sinsheim.

21 cm V1( 39/40)
I believe that photography could be a gun carriage V3. Two guns deployed in 1945 in Alsace. The details vary from carriages V1 and V2.
