Museo histórico do exercito e forte de Copacabana

I am on vacations in Río de Janeiro and came accros with interesting 305mm cartridge. As it can be seen in the pictures below it looks like a German WWI machinary but in South America.

I hope that all can enjoy these pictures. I did not expect to find this kind of staff in a brazilian military museum.
