About The Great War with 6 comments by BDIZZLE356 on Feb 4th, 2014

Canon de 155 L Modèle 1877

At the start of the Great War, the French Army had put an enormous amount of faith in their famous "75". It was indeed a formidable gun, but it soon became apparent that even this Gun could not perform all the tasks needed, especially when the war turned static and fixated around entrenchments rather than maneuver. Heavier guns were needed.

This forced the French Army to use older or even obsolete guns, in a desperate effort to fill the gap, and to provide the troops with much needed heavy Fire Support. That is the reason why the 155mm Cannon Mle 1877 was kept in service, despite its obvious age, shown primarily by its rigid mount on a "Napoleon-style" carriage. The lack of a modern system of Recoil meant, among other things, that the gun had to be relaid after each shot, greatly reducing the rate of fire. The Mle 1877 could shoot a 40kg (881b) shell up to a maximum range of 9.8km, which was quite acceptable. The Breech was of the De Bange screw type, and the gun was fired using a Friction Device.





Canon de 155 C modèle 1917 Schneider

The 155mm Howitzer by Schneider, was the principal heavy howitzer piece of the French Army during the Great War. It started as a private enterprise, the design being made by Schneider to get a contract to equip the Russian Imperial Army with artillery. The gun itself proved to be an excellent piece, and when the War broke out in 1914 it was soon accepted by the French Army as well, who needed these types of modern, heavy howitzers.

can someone make a Boer war mod please, that would be good

at first the British would be rubbish
then the Khaki and Lee Enfields would arrive and they would be awesome, you could even put Churchill in it

the Boers would just be good the whole time
(take off projectile tracers and the Boers would be even better)

Hey i think that CA could use some guidence right now, all they need is what the people think of them and how they could improve.

Also true Rome is the best, followed by Shogun 2. Also if you are not impressed look-up Darth Vaders mods, damn impressive i dare say

One word WELLINGTON. He never lost a battle he personally commanded, there were at least 50, and the only battle they ever fought, WELLINGTON, not Napoleon, won. I'm not saying that it wasn't partly due to the Prussians or that napoleon is a bad general by any means, I just think you go much too far to say Napoleon is "the best general in history".
