Dora Gun.

Dora Gun was manufactured by the German company Krupp for the third Reich during World War II. Hitler had wanted a gun "able to pierce a meter of steel, seven meters of concrete, or thirty meters of dense earth": Link - Thanks Sammy and gahsoon!


There's also the V3, another large nazi cannon. While the bore was 'only' 15cm/6in it was 150m long, compared to the 36m of dora. It was designed to fire on london from it's position deep in a bunker in france.
