Default ID help needed. GJ muli equipment carrier?

Anyone know what this was used to carry?
It seems to be a carrier for a specific instrument or piece of equipment, to me it looks like it's for a mule which would fit as it was found in a place occupied by Gebirgsjäger.
view of the front, it's been made to be strong yet light, the box lid opens forward rather than up (if you stand it up), inside the box was just a mass of corroded zinc i'm afraid.


The top clearly shows that 4 poles of whatever equipment it was designed for should be placed here. There's also spaces for other equipment pieces in the frame.



The back, the frame is inlaid with wood. Overall the size of this thing is roughly 75cm x 75cm
