    They were relics of the first world war although a few survived to see action in the second. They were an attempt to make use of the tank chassis, as the tank itself wasn't particularly good.

    Default That's nothin....

    The projectiles from DORA are almost bigger than that whole gun. 800mm I believe. They just recentlydug up a number of range fired projectiles. I believe DORA needed a crew of 1,300 people....
