    I don't think it was a fire extinguisher (if that's what it really is) used on AFV's by the Germans as these were almost exclusively made by TETRA and generally marked as such.

    An inriguing piece indeed. I'm afraid I have no idea what it is but I think the word on the side may be "feuergefährlich" literally "fire dangerous" which would translate as the caveat "Flammable".

    I hope this might help

    Perhaps it's meant to be used as nitrous oxide injection for a half track.....Imagine that!!

    Everyone has such educated input. I was just going to hazard a guess at a flamethrower tank, but seems like those were rounder and fatter. That said, any morning you get to look up photos of flame throwers is a good morning.

    Thanks everyone for the replies - and what do you guys think about the markings: the "1943(?)" and the eagle? I never saw markings like that...
