Germany produced some massive pieces of weaponry in WWII, and few were more massive than the Morser Karl series of 60cm siege mortars. Each of the six mortars built weighed in at around 124 tons! The weapons could be self-propelled on their tracks for short distances (normally just for aiming), though they were generally transported by rail on a pair of bogies. Capable of firing a 2-ton shell a distance of 6.8km, the 60cm Morser Karl (Gerat 040) was first used on the Eastern Front against the Brest Fortress.

A 5-Piece Morser Karl Crew Set is also available to complement this model.

Karl-Gerat 040 Siege Mortar

Seven Morser Karl self-propelled siege howitzers were designed and built by Rheinmetall from November 1940 to August 1941. Due to General Karl Beckers leadership in the development of this gun, his men named the weapon after him. The 12-cylinder Daimler-Benz powerplant provided a Maximum speed of 6.2 miles per hour. The muzzle velocity was measured at 6,950 meters per ton and the entire gun was mounted to a thick massive baseplate to absorb the tremendous recoil. Only six of these hefty guns were ever produced and all saw action across the war's many fronts. Despite its size and available firepower, the Karl had not been decisive in any single engagement and the value of such a massive weapon was highly questionable.
