most badass gun ever: the gustav


Recommended Posts



Created: In 1941 by Germany

Weight: 1,350 tons

Length: 47.3m

Barrel length: 32.48m

Width: 7.1m

Height: 11.6m


Shells had to punch through seven meters of reinforced concrete or armor plate steel, one meter thick.


Each shelled weighed 7,100 kilogram armor-piercing and had a range of 37,210 meters or 39 km [23 miles].


The chassis was supported by four bogies on parallel sets of railway tracks. Each of the bogies had 20 axles, giving a total of 80 axles or 160 wheels.


It was capable of 1 round every 30 to 45 minutes or typically 14 rounds a day.


It was the largest caliber rifled weapon in the history of artillery to see actual combat, and fired the heaviest shells of any artillery piece.

i dont know how true it is, nor do i care, but i saw a pretty interesting documentary claiming hitler was a speed addict


not in the form of crystals of course, but injections his doctors gave him before public speeches he was eventually addicted to


photos of medical records were displayed, but history has/can been re-written, so i brushed it off & went about my business
