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.

Its intended use was to blow up the French Maginot Line at the outbreak of World War II, but it wasn't ready in time, and the attack through Belgium meant it was never needed for its original purpose. The size of the shells was staggering.

I think this is the same place which had a massive fire a couple of months ago. It's since been rebuilt. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57883332

It's perhaps a strange analogy, but the animation of the electric mining drills always reminds me of mosquitos sucking blood:
