The Americans are getting some artillery to cover their advance through the battlefields of World War I for Flames Of War. Mortars and full on field guns are going to be echoing across the trenches once these get going…
The Americans were part of a massive counter offensive to try and stop the Germans who had put all their effort into crushing the rest of the Allies after Russian left the war. Bringing new technology, including the likes of these Trench Mortars, they were able to hold the line.
These mortars were designed to be used as close support for infantry advances. They were compact enough to fit in a trench and could be carried around with ease when the team needed to relocate. A nifty invention.
If you want some bigger field guns then see what you make of the 75mm mle 1897 gun. This was one of the best support guns ever made and not only do you get the gun teams but also a command team too directing their fire…
This piece of French engineering was devastating and its high rate of fire made it a deadly weapon to use against anything caught out in the open. It was the first gun in the world to combine a breech-loading weapon with an effective recoil system.
What do you think?
