on June 10, the 27th heavy tank regiment advanced 14 km along the Vyborg highway
Formally speaking neither 26 nor 27 Guards HTR took part in combat on 10.06.44. The first engagement of the 27 GHTR was a "friendly" firefight with Soviet T-34 tanks on the morning of 11.06.44.

There was no combat on 10.06.1944 (but better to check original regiment's report for that day), but 27 OGvTTP started the advance.

Soviet 180-mm railway gun TM-1-180, captured by Finns on the Hanko Peninsula in December 1941, in battery position, Finland.

In 1945, taken back from Finns and repaired railway guns TM-1-180 of the former 17th battery from the Hanko Peninsula entered service with the newly formed 292nd battery.
Finns sold the five captured (from Hanko and Karelian isthmus) 1800 railway guns (31.12.1944?) with price of 136 122 000 Finnish Marks.
Also the (from Hanko) captured three 305mm raiway guns were sold for 161 425 000 Marks.
Guns were complete, in working order and with some ammo.
