The 24 cm SK L/40 "Theodor Karl" (SK - Schnelladekanone (quick loading cannon) L - Länge (with a 40 caliber barrel)) was a German railroad gun that served on both the Eastern Front and the Western Front in World War I. Originally a naval gun, it was adapted for land service after its ships were disarmed beginning in 1915. One gun saw service in the Belgian Army after the war. After Belgium's surrender in World War II, the Germans used that gun on coast-defense duties for the rest of the war.
