Germany produced some massive pieces of weaponry in WWII, and few were more massive than the Mörser 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 Mörser Karl (Gerät 040) was first used on the Eastern Front against the Brest Fortress. To increase the extremely short range of the weapon system, a 54cm gun barrel was subsequently manufactured and fitted to three of the Mörser Karls (now designated Gerät 041), which increased the range to 10.4km.

Dragon Armor has released a mightily impressive 1/35 scale model of the sixth gun to be built, which was named “Ziu”. This particular gun, “Ziu”, was famously employed in the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. The model is fully assembled and pre-painted, and is ready for immediate display…as long as collectors can clear enough space for it! It constitutes an impressive model thanks to its sheer size and bulk though fortunately it doesn’t weigh nearly as much as the original mortar! This Dragon Armor item is full of intricate detail, and it is presented in firing mode with the chassis lowered. The three-color camouflage scheme is particularly well done, and represents the work of true craftsmen. As a special bonus, a huge shell is included with this assembled model, which gives a sense of the sheer scale of this weapon. The real gun could attain a rate of fire of only six rounds per hour, and its strategic success was limited at best, but as a model, this 135 scale “Ziu” is unbeatable in its “shock and awe” effect!
