Blister de Swedish Leather Gun pour le jeu Pike & Shotte

The leather cannon, or leather gun, was designed from the desire to build a light and cost effective weapon that would help fill the gap between the portable musket an the more static heavy cannons in use at the time. The gun's odd name comes from the varnished leather that acted as a protective surface layer of the piece.

Swiss and Austrian engineers were believed to have been the first to develop the Leather Gun. King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, used them during the Polish–Swedish War  of 1626–1629. Leather guns also saw plenty of action during the English Civil Wars in the mid-17th century, especially in Scotland.

Gustavus Adolphus' tactics were based around the effective use of firepower, and whilst heavy cannon were effective during the early stages of a battle, they could not be moved from their initial deployment position. As such, the artillery could not respond effectively to developments in battle but this new, lighter style of cannon  now made this possible.

Pack contains 1 metal gun and 3 metal gun crew.

Note: Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
