Warlord Games Napoleonic Russian 10 pdr Licorne Howitzer With Crew
Count Arakcheyev's reforms had led to a standardisation of gun types so the army could rely upon a uniform selection of 6-pounder and 12-pounder guns and the 10-pounder and 20-pounder Licornes. In conjunction with the Karbanov gun sight (the most advanced of its time) Russian artillery was a match for any enemy.
The Licorne (or Unicorn in English) was a different breed of gun to its French howitzer counterpart. It was a uniquely Russian design, being a hybrid howitzer with a long barrel and chambering that allowed a flatter trajectory and improved range and accuracy. They came as quite a nasty surprise for Napoleon's veterans.
Contains 1 Metal gun and 4 crew.
