This is a (hopefully) complete list of weapons designed originally for Shipboard or Coastal defence used by the Wehrmacht, compiled by Antonio Pena with additional info from the other members of the forum.
The list includes the weapons designed originally for Shipboard or Coastal defence, made in Germany or captured. The coastal front between the French-Spanish border and the Norway-Finnish border was defended mainly with captured weapons, but the most important part of the pieces were not designed originally for that purpose.

A complete list of the weapons used to defend the "Festung Europe", will include nearly all the guns made in Europe from 1870 onwards, and are outside of the scope of this list, many of them are described under the chapters of Light and Medium, Heavy, Railway and Fortress artillery.
