38 cm

We have devided this caliber into several types:

  • the 38.1 cm of the Italian "Littorio" class
  • the 38 cm of the French "Richelieu" class
  • the 38 cm as used in turrets designed for the planned German "O" class battle cruiser
  • the 38 cm gun "Siegfried", which is a special navy coastal version of the guns used on the German "Bismarck" class battleships

One of the 38cm barrels, once placed in Denmark, has found its resting place in the TĂžjhusmuseet at Copenhagen. The provided link will not show you the actual barrel, because it has been parked outside. (Mike, thank you for this info).
