Info I have on above photo: This weapon is identified as the 8.3in (21cm) K 12(E) rail cannon. Built in March 1939, the second model 4.7in (12cm) K 12(N) was built in July 1940. In the entire Second World War, the 701st. Artillery Battery deployed these weapons, and fired 83 rounds!

"All that silly talk about the advance of science and such leaves me cold. Give me peace and a retarded science."
