    From the Wikipedia article:

    "The 15 guns Armstrong made, were used to arm two Italian battleships and, to counter these, British fortifications at Malta and Gibraltar."

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Military-Industrial complex in action. Sell your guns to one side, then to the other side to defend from the first sale.

    I have visited the gun on Gibraltar, entry to the museum is the crazy sum of 1

    Very impressive bit of engineering and the ultimate deterrent of it's day, never needed to be fired in anger.

    Puts my little 2" cannon to shame. But a lot cheaper to shoot.
