Re: FFL Artillery


i think the gun is a french "Canon de 65 M (montagne) modele 1906".

A gun developed before World War 1, specially for the use in montanious areas. Therefore the gun could easy be taken into pieces, so that mules can transport the gun-parts. :snow_capped_mountain:

Re: FFL Artillery

Another item to add to my wish list. If you create some of the other French colonial units I may need to get a second job. :grinning:
Some great ones in sets now!,but would like some cavalry , pack animals ,supply troops ,medical,
Agree on spanish ones or saphis plus some extra arabs.

Stay well strelets and everyone else

Re: FFL Artillery

Just an idea:

There are some nice mules in the old Airfix-Set of German Mountain Troops (WW II)...

If you like to build an FFL-Artillery-Uni this mules can be helpful...:
