That is supposedly from the artillery and aerial bombardment against the finnish main line at Valkeasaari, June 9th and 10th 1944. I cant confirm this thought.

Damn that is one big ass rifle. How did they transport it around?

I already get tired of my Colt C7 sometimes, can't image having to run around with this mofo all day :D

You have several people carrying it and the equipment (ammo) involved. Usually two people were enough to carry the gun itself in normal marching conditions.

'La Moskowa' was responsible for knocking out following Panther, in the front of Théâtre de l'Odéon on Rue de Vaugirard, June 1944. This Panther was hit four times, but the crew managed to bail out.



'La Moskowa' was later knocked out in Vosges, November 1, 1944. Immobilized in the mud, the tank was hit several times by anti-tank guns, killing the entire crew.
