25 cm heavy mine thrower (heavy mortar). The development of the heavy mine thrower was influenced by events in the Russo-Japanese War (1904 - 05), particularly the siege of Port Arthur where it was the German manufactured Krupp 28cm howitzers that destroyed the Russian fortifications, allowing the Japanese infantry to overrun the Russian defences and begin shelling their warships anchored in the harbour. The 25cm mine thrower was a back-breaker and could devastate whole sections of a trench and penetrate deep into the ground, shattering all but the deepest dugouts.
