    By the libs' rules, we could all own one... No threaded barrel, no handguard that protrudes below the stock, no detatchable magazine, no collapsible stock, cannot hold more than 10 rounds, not full auto, not even semiauto, not chambered in .50 BMG. These guns are no more evil than your average deer rifle.

    The operators of the German gun could only fire the weapon one time. Upon the first round being fired, their innards were immediately liquified. Any volunteers for the second volley? Who could even hear anything after the first projectile was loosed?:D
    This gun could have been used in a primative space program, to literally put a man in space.

    It's not the caliber... it's the shot placement.


    Sorry...couldn't help it.

    It's a little bigger than my KelTec. You can aim anywhere you want with this baby. Shoot a guy in the pinky and he's not just going down, he's put in orbit.:D

    Gustav was 800mm. The USA built a 1000mm mortar, though.

    Saddam Hussein was in the process of building a 1000mm gun, but the UN seized the last shipments of barrel section before it was completed. He wanted to use it to shell Israel. IIRC, the barrel would have been nearly 100 meters long (280 feet, I think it was)

    Yup, trying to copy another German WWII gun... nicknamed the "Paris" rail-gun. (No, the Paris rail-gun wasn't 1000mm but it was extremely large!)

    Kinda like Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon, they used a giant cannon to launch a shell with 3 men inside to the moon. Could have almost done that with this goliath.

    Mmm, maybe. But consider the acceleration you'd need to get someone from 0-7 miles/second in less than 100 feet.

    Improvements in rockets made these obsolete, but they're still pretty cool. The whole assembly would make a cool battlefield site for "Red Orchestra."

    The Dora Gun

    I saw a program on the "Dora gun" about 5 years back. They were talking of the fact that no 2 of the projectiles were the exact same "caliber". Each successive shot had to be engineered something like 3/1,000 over the previous due to barrel wear.

    I can't even imagine the blast that beast had!

    When the engineer was found dead with mulitiple gunshot wounds to the back of the head, was it declared a suicide?
