Tsar Cannon (Tsar Pushka)

Tsar Cannon (Tsar Pushka) Review

This huge piece of artillery (pushka) has the largest caliber of any gun in the world, but like the Tsar Bell that has never been rung, it has never fired a single shot. Cast in bronze in 1586 by Andrei Chokhov, it weighs 40 tons and is 17½ feet long. Its present carriage was cast in 1835, purely for display purposes.
