I am glad to announce that my two new articles are already issued about that topic:
in US (CDSG) = CD Journal Volume 33, Issue 2, Spring 2019: "Changmen Paotai: The Incredible Story of the Bursting and Repair of 28 cm Krupp Coast Guns in China".
In UK (FSG) = FORT Volume 46, 2018: "Identification of British coastal defence ordnance on disappearing carriages in China".
Both of them with help of YC Chen, our fellow from that forum. Thanks YC!
