One of the world's largest artillery pieces makes Fort Lee home
FORT LEE, Va. (Jan. 13, 2011) -- Anzio Annie's 70-foot barrel sets on tracks at Fort Lee Jan. 13. Annie, a K5 rail gun named for the World War II beachhead, was moved from Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. to Fort Lee as part of the Ordnance School's Base Realignment and Closure-mandated relocation. Annie's gondola and two 12-wheel rail cars made its way to the installation in November. All components will be assembled and eventually displayed at Fort Lee.
