There is a strongly guarded area to the east of St.Petersburg not far from new ring road. This is the Rjevskiyi firing ground. Nobody permitted to enter there. This shots are ones of the first published. There are two remarkable and unique guns on the firing ground: 16" prototype gun B-37 and 12" gun at the test "crane" type mounting.
