Tracking Down a 38cm gun

Post by Tiornu » Tue Nov 16, 2004 4:45 am

In a recent book, A. B. Shirokorad (we might think of him as the Campbell of Russian/Soviet artillery) mentioned that one German 38cm gun was turned over to the Soviets before Barbarossa. He gives the serial number of the gun as SKC/34 No. 67/1994. This is an interesting bit of trivia. Can we confirm this from German records?

I've seen photos of a 38cm on temporary display in Denmark for some exposition about thirty years ago, along with a shell.
