How about sixteen inch guns like the US Navy Iowa class battleships had? One of them was in Sydney during the 1988 Australian Bicentennial Celebrations and I was over there for the Bicentennial Airshow at Richmond Air Force Base. I can't recall which of the battleships it was (it may have been the Missouri), but they fired off a few nine-gun broadsides off the Sydney Heads. We headed up to the top of the Manly Head to watch that (along with thousands of other people). The muzzle flash from nine of those big mothers was humungous (as was the noise)!! And the Japs built a couple of battleships with eighteen-inch guns!!!
