The Schwerer Gustav Gun - WWII Series
Schwerer Gustav was the name of a German 31.5 in. railway gun. It was developed 
in the late 1930s by Krupp as siege artillery for the explicit purpose of 
destroying the main forts of the French Maginot Line, the strongest 
fortifications then in existence. The fully assembled gun weighed nearly 1,350 
tonnes, and could fire shells weighing seven tonnes to a range of 29 miles. The 
gun was designed in preparation for the Battle of France, but was not ready for 
action when the battle began, and in any case the Wehrmacht's Blitzkrieg 
offensive through Belgium rapidly outflanked and isolated the Maginot Line's 
static defenses, eventually forcing the French to surrender and making their 
destruction unnecessary. Gustav was later employed in the Soviet Union at the 
siege of Sevastopol during Operation Barbarossa, where among other things, it 
destroyed a munitions depot buried in the bedrock under a bay. The gun was moved 
to Leningrad, and may have been intended to be used in the Warsaw Uprising like 
other German heavy siege pieces, but the rebellion was crushed before it could be 
prepared to fire. Gustav was destroyed by the Germans near the end of the war in 
1945 to avoid capture by the Red Army.
It was the largest-calibre rifled weapon ever used in combat, the heaviest mobile 
artillery piece ever built in terms of overall weight, and fired the heaviest 
shells of any artillery piece. It is only surpassed in calibre by the unused 
British Mallet's Mortar and the American Little David bomb-testing mortar both 36 
inch and 914 mm.
