The Schwerer Gustav (Heavy Gustav). The fully assembled gun weighed nearly 1,350 tonnes ~1,224,700kg and could fire shells weighing 7t ~6,985kg a range of 47 km (29 miles). Schwerer Gustav was the largest calibre rifled weapon ever used in combat and, in terms of overall weight, the heaviest mobile artillery piece ever built. It fired the heaviest shells of any artillery piece.
