Battery Hearn in Corregidor Island | Things to do in Cavite City-Cavite
Battery Hearn is home to the largest military gun in Corregidor Island. The 12-inch gun could fire 1,000-pound projectiles, at a range as far as 17 miles or 7.4 km. Another curious find in this battery is the large bomb crater sitting next to the gun. Located at the southwest of Battery Way, Battery Hearn was intended to defend the island from enemy naval threat from the South China Sea. Battery Hearn is named in honor of Brigadier Gen. Clint Hearn, who commanded the harbor defenses of Manila and Subic Bay in 1919.
