Frundsberg Artillery musters

As the KuK forces in Italy were short of artillery the Frei Stadt had loaned its newly raised flying artillery to the Emperor at very advantageous terms. The battery is dressed in the latest fashion with a tarlton helmet and laced shell jacket. The ordinary gunners are provided with overall to protect their breeches when riding.

Backing them up will be some batteries of Austrian reserve artillery who have been remustered (and rebased) after many years of inaction. The gunners are still awaiting the delivery of their ordnance.

Action against the French is expected shortly.

Don't tell me, the Russians are sending the ordnance.

I like the red and yellow striped carriages.

Nice work! I agree on the striped carriages.

Elegant artillery. I do like the Tarleton helmets, they give a touch of class to a unit.
