Found some mentions of Krupp large caliber naval gun projects, such as 45cm/52 gun from 1934, and 45cm/60 and 50cm/60 guns from 1942. Unfortunately I couldn't find any more info on them. Maybe someone here can help with it?

Krupp 53cm/52
Data of 50cm - 2000 kg projectile, 820 mps, but, I do not remember where and when I found it, perhaps this data is not reliable.
According to some reports, the H-42 and H-43 were supposed to have 48cm guns.
Wikipedia, referring to Siegfried Breyer's 1973 book, reports that Hitler wanted 24-inch cannons (61cm).
That is, in total, the Germans discussed the guns:
45 cm
48 cm
50 cm
53 cm
61 cm
For railway artillery, Krupp developed projects of 700, 800, 850, 1000 mm, a project of 800 mm ("Dora") was implemented:
Projected 52cm Lange Gustav:
