The 280 mm mortar M1939 (Br-5) (Russian: 280-мм мортира образца 1939 года (Бр-5)) was a Soviet heavy howitzer used during World War II. This mortar was the Red Army´s heaviest field piece. Distinguished by the siege of Berlin, these weapons quickened up the Red Army´s assault on the German capital. Due to the heavy weight of shell (168 kg) the blast created a 10 metre deep crater. The weapon had low rate of fire due to muzzle overheating.

In FHSW the gun is available single or in battery of 2. The single gun can be transported with truck and can also move from himself. The blast so heavy, Tiger tanks can also not survive the blast.
