Title: Napoleonic Austrian cavalry guns
Post by: kustenjaeger on 12 September 2012, 10:02:59 AM
Greetings

I've just realised that there is no model of the Austrian 6 pdr cavalry gun (or indeed the cavalry howitzer).   These are pretty distinctive (with the box seat on the longer trail).  The limber for the cavalry gun is also different. 

There were a lot of cavalry batteries.  Each Corps usually had 2. 

A discussion of cavalry guns is available at http://www.napoleon-series.org/military/OrdnanceJournal/Issue1/1-01_Smola1827.pdf .  The Osprrey Vanguard on Austrian artillery (currently out of print) has a number of illustrations.  There are technical drawings available e.g. http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k4330358/f343.image (the plates in the surrounding pages have different Austrian artillery equipments).

Regards

Edward
