has wheels and is cool, enormous cannons. 1st the Tsar Cannon, cast in 1586, the largest cannon by caliber in the world

March 9th, 2018 by admin

It is a monument of Russian artillery casting art, cast in bronze in 1586 in Moscow, by the Russian master bronze caster Andrey Chokhov. Mostly of symbolic impact, it was never used in a war.

During the French invasion of Russia, although Napoleon Bonaparte considered removing it to France as a war trophy.

The gun was meant to shoot 800 kg stone grapeshot rather than true, solid cannonballs.

Its bronze-cast barrel has an internal diameter of 35″

The cannon-style gun carriage, added in 1835, is purely decorative. This weapon was never intended to be transported on or fired from this gun carriage.

The 2000 pound cannon balls located in front of the Tsar Cannon were produced in 1834 as a decoration, too large to have been used in the cannon.

According to legend, the cannonballs were manufactured in St. Petersburg, and were intended to be a humorous addition and a symbol of the friendly rivalry between Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The General Electric Partio wasn’t awesome enough for having a portable stove, oven, rotisserie, and charcoal BBQ grill, all in one convenient cart

This one comes from the Palm Springs home of President Eisenhower, who called it “the most fantastic thing you ever saw.”

Designed by General Electric in the early 1960s, the Partio Cart sold for almost $800. It is an electric range and oven on one side and a barbecue on the other. Just imagine the little woman on the oven side and the man of the house on the other. The Partio Cart originally came with an umbrella and a cover
