This is an 11in Krupp gun at the Oscarsborg Fortress, Norway. This gun, installed in 1893, and one other mount fired 2 shots into the German heavy cruiser Blucher as she entered the Drobak Narrows during the invasion of Norway in 1940 at a range of 1 mile. The first shot landed in front of the fore mast, creating a fire amidships. The second round struck below the 8in A turret forward, dismounting the turret and blowing huge chunks of the ship into the Fjord.

Norway's fjords offered natural hiding places for the German fleet, which draped the battleship Tirpitz with tarps and branches to blend in with the countryside and foil enemy reconnaissance. Still, the British Navy caught and sank 10 German destroyers in a major battle off Narvik in April.
