The German Krupp K5(E) 280mm heavy railway gun was one of the most effective artillery weapons developed during WWII. Boasting a 40-mile range, these massive guns were deployed on the Russian Front, in Italy, and as part of Hitler's Channel Coast defences.

The German K5(E) 280mm railgun is arguably the most effective weapon of its type ever developed. Boasting an 11-mile range, the 24 massive guns of this type were deployed from Italy to the Russian Front, and even along the English Channel Coast. Today, only two of these fearsome artillery pieces remain.
