In the north of France, in the town of Audinghen, there is a museum that manages the bunker “Todt”. The bunker itself is already a solid appearance ... but the cannon that stands next to it ... that was what mattered to us ... A Krupp K5 cannon, made between 1937 and 1940. It fired a 255 kilo grenade over a distance of almost 70 km. The gun weighs 120 tons and is 32 meters long.
