I have recently came across information about a mortar, may I reiterate a massive mortar built in 1917 by SKODA at the Štorková engineering works in Brno. This massive 500mm mortar was tested by Germany and Austro-Hungary at the shooting range in Steinfeld and Husovice-u Brna.

One prototype was produced in 1917

The shell weighing in at 270 kg /595 lbs. 

 Range was 2000m/6561ft.

It name as I understand it was the Storek Mortar System.

If you have any information, please contact me or post it here.

All the Best
