No, not the guns on the guy (although thanks to evil Anil the trainer, he’s got some), the gun behind us.
Weighing 50 tons, it is the world’s largest wheeled cannon, and is still in working condition. It takes four elephants to swivel it around if the enemy happens to be coming from another direction.
It’s only been fired once – for testing – in 1720. It fired a 110 pound ball that went 22 miles. The depression it made in the ground is now a pond. Our guide told us that in that test 200 soldiers lost their hearing and many birds died from the shock wave. So, the plan was, if it ever needed to fired again they would use a longer fuse and have all the soldiers jump into the nearby rain collection pond so that their ears would be under water thereby protecting their hearing. I guess the birds would be on their own. There are also legends that the soldier who fired it died on the spot and that seven other people and one elephant died, that expectant mothers in Jaipur had miscarriages and homes collapsed.
Fortunately, it has not been necessary to fire the cannon again. It is one big gun.
