Naval Gun Shells


Another item exhibited in MART Museum (Rovereto): without any indication of the scale, these gun shells seem to be normal ones. The point is that these are naval gun shells. For instance, the biggest one is a 30.5 cm/45 (12″) Škoda shell, used on Erzherog Franz Ferdinand, Radetzky and Tegetthoff war ships. To give you an idea, such shells are about 1,60 meters high!
