"canon de 7"


Here is a nice drawing (dated 1871) of the shell and projectiles used in the “canon de 7”

And here are the details of the fuze


Great stuff.Please keep it up.


Did the gun use percussion primers held in the case, or did it use friction primers like the caseless howitzer guns?


This is the friction primer used for the ignition , the drawing of this primer is on fig 8,9,10


Yes, I am aware of that. But I also see that the case shown has what could have been a normal percussion primer. That’s why I asked.
