It's often the response from Prussian opponents: "Oh Crap, they've got Krupps!"

Yep, when each turn you see more Krupps appear on a ridgeline, you know it's not going to end well, as I know from bitter experience Sad Wink

Fortunatrely in 1866 the Prussians were very loathe to throw their nice new Krupp guns head first into the fray. They also still used a large number of 12lb brass muzzle loaders. The Austrians came a cropper using attack colums against breechloading needle guns.
