Early bit with the horses is rather beautiful.

Interesting to watch.
Guys read maps really fast.
A wire-laying horse (nice wargame feature)
The rifles are slung to drag on the ground.
A guy popped a wheelie with his horse.
Somebody dropped a candy wrapper.
The tandem Cassion for extra crew was neat (another nice wargame feature)
What was the number the guy chalked on the Breech of the gun?
These are howitzers correct?
Don't understand the load - they have shells with casing but also load something that looks like a cordite charge behind casing,
But after firing extract the casing?

It's a great video isn't it? ... and great observation.


The youtube description is the FK16 howitzer, but I think it's leFH18 10.5cm.

Cordite bags were often separate, like in WW2 ships.

Did not know that.
Watched the loading and firing a couple more times - I though the shell itself had a casing but it does not. Apparently the charge is held in a ring (or container) which is removed after firing. The whole procedure is neat to watch. Just noticed that the runner from each gun lies flat on the ground after delivering the (load status?) to the Battery Commander.

Most light field guns are "semi-fixed" ammunition, with separate shell and cartridge. The cartridge would contain the full charge which was adjusted by the gun number 1 (RA practice), the unused cordite being burnt to prevent an accidental over charge.

I loved the ESCI? Revell? 1:72 German horse artillery set. Ended up with a full battery of limbered and unlimbered guns.

Totally useless for the table, but a joy.

Love the video though. Especially the first bit before they get unlimbered.

And in my 1970's Chieftain and I'm fairly sure in the Challenger 2.

While looking for another reenactment video I found this one of Koniggratz (1866)  done in 2010. Probably old hat to those doing the period but interesting none the less:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtKpsGYoOxQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtKpsGYoOxQ</a>

The Austrians are clearly using muzzleloaders and the Prussians bolt action breechloaders (apparently not actual Dreyse Rifles, however).
What is amazing in the video is the enormous rate of fire difference between the two. Also likes the Uhlans  Smiley

Had to get you warmed up. Can't just dive in with the best!

You may find Centurions pop up in some of the other videos as well.   Embarrassed




Never took to the Chieftain myself. Great slopy, smoky thing. Always thought it look sort of foreign.
