    Really old Canon

    Okay, it's a cannon.... not a Canon

    It is called the Tsar Cannon and it was built in 1586. It's considered the largest cannon in the world at sixteen feet long and weighing 85,000 pounds. Tsar Fyodor I (Ivan the Terrible's son) had it made.

    BTW, it has never been fired lol.

    Re: Really old Canon

    Not sure if its the biggest, I know some off the coast of California were extremely large but were never fired out of agression. It is definetly one of the most ornate and beautiful cannons I have seen. I'm a nerd I know....its my majors fault.

    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    It would be fun to see some of the details close up. I like the lion head under the barrel. The way it's shown it looks like the cannon balls just ploped out of the barrel and fell in a pile.
