The picture shows a long-range siege gun used to bombard Paris during World War I. It was in service between March-August 1918. When it was first employed, Parisians believed they had been bombed by a new type of high-altitude zeppelin, as neither the sound of an airplane nor a gun could be heard. It was the largest piece of artillery used during the war by barrel length if not caliber, and is considered to be a supergun.

Identify the gun.
