Hello to all :D; something more..................

The 21 cm Mörser 18 in action.

The 21 cm Mortar 18 developed and built by Krupp replaced the obsolete 1916 model from 1939 onwards and was one of the main German army heavy artillery guns as it was used on all fronts in the second world war. Despite being difficult to handle due to its heavy weight of 16.7 tonnes in the firing position and 22.7 tonnes in the travelling position, the long range and heavy firepower of the 21 cm Mortar 18 made it a very effective artillery weapon.

The construction of the weapon consisted of an upper and a lower mount with a double recoil system. The pivot in the platform enabled it to traverse through 360° in the firing position. The elevation of 0° to +70° gave it a maximum range of 16,700 m. The ammunition used was the 21 cm shell 18 (113 kg) or the 210 mm shell 18 concrete (121 kg). A well trained crew could fire one round every 2 minutes. As of April 1, 1940 there were 124 pieces. The cost per unit was of RM 107,000.

Sturm78 posted the following picture on page 1 of this thread (28 May 2012 04:34):

I have found a picture from a Dutch forum showing the front side of the gun. Small wheels are visible near the feet of the 3rd soldier sitting on the barrel. This allows to identify the gun as a 17 cm K18.
