Giant Mortar-Fareham
Giant Mortar-Fareham
Apparently this mortar has the biggest bore of any gun ever made. It was intended for use against fortifications such as the fort in which it is situated. It can be seen outside the Royal Armouries Museum at Fort Nelson near Fareham. Only two or three were made and they had problems with breakages. It was constructed from many parts so as to enable transportation. It was never used.
