Default groundfound wheel (part)

Gentlemen, I ask for identification of the object attached. It a wheel of a vehicle with a track, most likely german, but not confirmed. The holes a protected with a net welded on them, in my opinion to protect it from outside dirt. I have no idea, please help.

When Frozzer said "interior", he meant inside the tank. Part of the final drive coupling inside the tank. He's a pic I found referring to a model of the tank, but it shows the part: http://s1.postimg.cc/try4nilof/Scree...1_23_14_21.jpg
I think it's basically the internal cover for the steering brakes.

If you google "panzer iv steering brakes" you'll see some more pics.

Thank you all! Very impressive, your knowledge. So it must have "rolled away" when a Panzer IV was dismantled after the war, because no further parts found
