When it comes to artillery, many friends may be the most impressed by “truth is always within the range of artillery.” So which model is the maximum artillery produced by humans in history?
The answer is the Gustav train gun.
Gustav train cannons produced two doors, of which the second “Dorra” is bigger.
“Dora” weighs 1350 tons, 42.97 meters in length, 32.48 meters of guns, 12 meters in height, 800 mm in the diameter, and 96 rivers inside the cannons.
The length of the armor -piercing bomb is 3.6 meters, weighs 7.1 tons, and the high explosion is 4.8 tons, and the range reaches 37 and 48 kilometers, respectively.
This may not be very vivid. We compare it like this. It has about 7.5 blue whales so heavy, or it is equivalent to 2,2500 adults.
The length is about one and a half of the basketball court, or the height of 15 floors.
There are four people in the cannon that can be plugged in at one time and wealthy.
The height of the shell is equal to the height of two adults.

Such a large artillery naturally needs a lot of operators. Germany also specially arranged artillery class, but this class was a bit large, with more than 1,400 people. Well, it was super -compiled that the squad leader could not use the previous military rank, so he was a Major General of the Army as the squad leader.
However, unfortunately for the Germans (of course, the Allied Forces were lucky), Dorra only fought 104 shells from beginning to end.
Fortunately, only 104 guns were fired, because in 1941, it only used dozens of guns to blast the Sevastopol into a ruin, and the Soviet Golki Portar cannon was also blown into the sky.
After the defeat of Germany, the cannon was captured by the Soviet Union. As for why the Soviet army abandoned, it is estimated that it was too bulky and moved slowly. When having air control, the effect was not as good as bombers.
In any case, it is still the largest artillery made by humans.
