Anyone have any examples of heavy artillery that was used in world war 1?

The Paris gun wasnt used in great effect though, it only killed about 500 people.. Germans were always about having the best equipment even if it meant having few quantity.. IE Panzers, Tigers, and Panthers..

It was primarily a psychological weapon though. I dunno about you, but the thought of a gun with an 80 mile effective range is pretty darn scary lol. Especially considering the technology of the time.
