Talk about a big gun! Schwerer Gustav was one of two German 800mm ultra-heavy railway guns. It was developed in the late 1930s by Krupp as siege artillery. The gun weighed nearly 1,350 tonnes and could fire shells weighing seven tonnes to a range of 29 miles. It was the largest-calibre rifled weapon ever used in combat and fired the heaviest shells of any artillery piece.
