Moevig cannon

Kristiansand, Norway

"This is the only remaining (38 cm) Krupp-cannon in the world, one of the biggest cannons
ever built. The cannon weighs 337 tons. The barrel alone weighs 110 tons. It could shoot
up to 55 kilometers (34 miles). It was built by the Germans during World War II to protect
the ship route to Norway ('Festung Norwegen')." --Helge

Grazie a Helge per phooning (ed e per l'idea della foto).
