Generally, field/siege carriage specs match to a given (or max) trunnion diameter since this is a primary piece of engineering criteria for the carriage. This is matched to tube weight. As I understand it the guns of Ft.

Wright were 32 pdr and greater. Siege artillery is heavy artillery primarily used in military attacks on fortified positions. At the time of the American Civil War, the U.S. Army classified its artillery into three hundred varied types, depending on the gun's weight and intended use. Field artillery were light pieces that often traveled with the and garrison artillery were heavy pieces that could be used either.

SIEGE CARRIAGE INFORMATION & SPECS There are three gun carriages for the service of siege artillery, viz: One for the pounder gun and Siege Rifle; One for the pounder gun and 30 pdr Parrott Rifle; One for the punder gun and the 8-inch howitzer; These carriages are similar to each other in their constructions, differing only in.

The word "line" in the designation refers to a measurement unit which equals inch. Curiously, the "model year" was not the year when the weapon was designed. The United States siege carriage of the 's had no extra trunnion holes, but a "traveling bed" was provided where the gun was cradled in position 2 or 3 feet back of its firing position.

A well-drilled gun crew could make the shift very rapidly, using a lifting jack, a few rollers, blocks, and chocks. The range and accuracy of the rifles startled the world. A pounder (inch) Parrott had an astonishing distance of 8, yards ( meters), just shy of 5 miles (8 kilometers), with pound hollow shot; the notorious "Swamp Angel" that fired on Charleston in was a pounder Parrott mounted in the marsh 7, yards from the city.
