During the ACW the mainstay of US fort artillery was the 11 inch columbiad, it was also the artillery of Monitor. Cheers.

Great job Reytuerto!... You've inspired me to undertake some work on the artillery at Dardanelles and Bosphorus in late 19th-early 20th centuries...

Thanx!... :D

Not one to nit pick, but I don't think cannons are considered vehicles and should belong in a seperate thread maybe. That's just me though.

Technically they aren't vehicles (though arguably only those static), but "historically" in FD there is no separation - "vehicles" practically means here anything that isn't flying or floating.

Good morning.

42 pounder was the standart heavy casemate gun in the coast fortifications of US Third System until the heavier columbiads of 1850s appeared. Here shown in the parapet mount.
Until the rifled gun, numerically the most important british heavy gun, for navy and fortifications, was the 32 pounder. The first one shown is a Bromfield Pattern gun in the most common casemate garrison carriage, Mk. I, not very different to the mounts of Elizabethan times. With the arrival of Palliser conversions, this and also other SBML old guns had a new life, in some case well after WWI, the second and third guns are examples of this conversions. And the last one is an intresting BL conversion for flank guns, the "caponiere gun", basically a huge shotgun, replaced by machine guns soon before WWI. Cheers.

I comment here much, but I'd like to say these artillery pieces are very interesting and I look forward to more to come.
