The only 21Cm I can find, is the "Lange 21cm Mörser" built by Krupp in 1916.... Do you think this could be it?

Calibre: 21,1 cm
Barrel lenght: 232 cm
Weight in action: 6.680 Kg
Maximum elevation: 70º
Traverse: 4º
Muzzle velocity: 393 m/s
Shell weight: 113 Kg
Maximum range: 11.100 m

The 21 cm SK L/40 "Peter Adalbert", a Railway Gun (old naval)
Calibre: 20,9 cm
Weight in action 70.000 Kg
Maximum elevation: 45º
Traverse: 0º
Muzzle velocity: 780 m/s
Shell weight: 115 Kg
Maximum range: 25.500 m

The 21 cm Kaiser Wilhelm Geschutz (Gun), (known as the Paris Gun)entered service in 1918

Krupp 210H10

Post by Juha Tompuri » 16 Sep 2002 22:51

Dear mr Pena

Actually we`re "talking" about a same weapon. The Krupp 210mm mod 1910 is the original one and for instance "my" howitzer is just an improved (export) version of it. The data is very similar too:

Caliber 211mm
Barrel lenght 14,5cal
Shell weight 113 and 120 kg
muzzle velocity 227 or 394m/s
Range 10,2 km
Elevation +6- +70 degrees
Traverse +/- 4 degrees
W-in action 7530 kg

Thanks for everyone for the answers so far. I think that Victor said in one old thread about artillery that Romanian army had 210mm model 1916 Krupp artillery pieces - so I tried to figure out what guns could these have been...

Best Regards,

Mait.
