I'd heard about Iraq's "Supergun" program before but I hadn't seen that Wikipedia article, nor had I ever seen that much detail about the program. Thanks for the link, that was a very interesting read.

There is a smaller version of a super gun that is rusting away in Quebec some where, I think, Gerald Bull idea was to use the gun to launch items into space, on a side note our (mine and Canadian Army) grandfather served with Bull
