The 21 cm MORSER m10-16 was a powerful weapon that served Germany in both world wars. It was a heavy howitzer that could fire shells of 120 kg over a distance of more than 10 km. The weapon was designed by Krupp and Rheinmetall and had a barrel length of 14.5 calibers. The weapon was classified as a mortar (MORSER) by the German military, but it was actually a howitzer with a high angle of fire. The weapon had a horizontal sliding-wedge breech and a hydro-pneumatic recoil system. It had a box trail carriage that could be fitted with rubber-rimmed steel wheels for motor traction. The weapon also had a gun shield to protect the crew from enemy fire. The 21 cm MORSER m10-16 was used to destroy enemy fortifications, artillery positions and troop concentrations. It was one of the most effective heavy artillery pieces of its time and remained in service until the end of World War II.
