Only one gun was inoperational condition during the warfare. It shot over the Vuborg's Gulf to assault Soviet troops till the beginning of March 1940. It's barrel was so worn out in the end of the War that it was impossible to provide required accuracy without danger to nail down own infantry by friendly fire. In March 1940 Finns desmounted all armaments and equipment and undermined the battery.
