I was recently playing Battlefield 3 and came across this on the edge of the map, does anybody know what it is?

I would say it is just for scenery. I am guessing that the area you're looking at is out of bounds (you cannot walk over there). – user47129 Apr 5 '13 at 18:38
That's crazy. It looks like an easter egg of some sort. – Shotgun Ninja Apr 5 '13 at 18:52
There's quite a lot of easter eggs in Bf3, including the dinosaurs and Faiths (from Mirrors' Edge) shoes and messenger bag. – tombull89 Apr 5 '13 at 19:41

According to this link and the following video, it is, as Shotgun Ninja pointed out, an easter egg.

This particular easter egg is a reference to, or possibly teasing about, Battlefield 2143.

As 2143 hasn't been announced, it's purely speculative, but since there is a crate on Wake Island with 2143 stamped on the side... – Kexlox Apr 5 '13 at 19:03
