    I thought this was nicely done - some good footage of the largest operational rail gun in history.

    Schwerer Gustav and Dora...magnificent and magnificent wastes of resources, albeit somewhat in hindsight.

    One wonders how the campaign in France would've unfolded if these giants had been ready in time for action against the Maginot Line.
    Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

        "...magnificent and magnificent wastes of resources, albeit somewhat in hindsight..."

        Somewhat. Germans may have felt justified by the expenditure at Sevastopol. Had DORA shown up outside Stalingrad in late August 1942 it would have posed an interesting threat to both the city defenses and assembly points on the east bank of the Volga.

        "...One wonders how the campaign in France would've unfolded if these giants had been ready in time for action against the Maginot Line."

        This is an interesting point. Had they been ready might the German Army contemplate, instead, a direct assault through the Maginot line? With their inmobility, pre-positioning might have been an intelligence indicator as to main effort. It also, therefore, raises the question of where might the BEF and French deploy their mobile forces. Postured forwardly against the Belgian border? Maybe not.
