Schwerer Gustav (English: Heavy Gustaf, or Great Gustaf) and Dora were two German 80 cm K (E) ultra-heavy railway guns. Developed in the late 1930s by Krupp as siege artillery for destroying the main forts of the French Maginot Line, the strongest fortifications then in existence. The twin guns weighed nearly 1,350 tonnes, and could fire shells weighing seven tonnes to a range of 47 kilometres (29 mi).

Tucked away in a corner of Ft Lee, stands one of the few remaining WWII era Krupp rail guns. Nicknamed "Anzio Annie" by the allies, this K5 was used extensively by the Germans all throughout WWII, first in 1940 for the invasion of France, and later in the war as a defense tool against the American invasion of Italy. It was later captured by the allies after the invasion. The barrel of this gun is at an impressive 280mm, and was capable of launching 550lb shells over 38 miles.
