I have always wondered what is the function of the part which wraps around a tank's gun mid~barrel.

I asked some self important grunt at the local armory and he said he wasn't allowed to tell me.LMAO

Does anyone know the function of this part?

It's a bore evacuator, designed to prevent fumes and propellant gasses from firing the main gun from reentering the fighting compartment once the breech is open.
