Guns Of History Whitworth Cannon 12-Pounder, 1:16 Scale

by Guns Of History Wood & Metal Kit

1:16 SCALE U.S. CIVIL WAR WHITWORTH BREECH-LOADING 12-POUNDER

HISTORY


Designed by Sir Joseph Whitworth, the cannon that bore his name became a favored weapon of the Confederacy. Unusual in appearance as well as operation, the Whitworth was a breech-loader that fired an elongated 12-pound iron shell from a finely rifled 1,100 pound barrel. Accurate and easy to maneuver, it had a range of 4.5 miles and made a shrill, whistling noise which could be distinguished from all other cannon of the period. The Whitworth saw action at Gettysburg, Charleston, Vicksburg, Fredericksburg and many other American Civil War battlefields.
