NAVAL SMOOTHBORE, 18TH CENTURY

Guns of History by Model Shipways • Precision Cast Metal Parts

1:24 SCALE U.S. CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY

BRIEF HISTORY
The 18th century naval smoothbore deck cannon was a flat trajectory weapon with a point blank range of 300 yards. It used any of the period projectiles: solid shot, hot shot, bombs, grape and canister. Standard ammunition was occasionally supplemented by whatever scrap materials that were on hand, including bolts, chains, nails, even pieces of kettles.

The gun was mounted on a wooden carriage made of elm, which was both splinter resistant when hit by opposing gunfire and stout enough to withstand the shock of the recoiling gun. Various tackles enabled the gun crew to position the weapon. With unpredictable seas tossing both target and gun, accurate gunnery at a distance required an expert gunner, a well trained gun crew and a bit of luck. As a result, evenly matched ships tended to sail alongside each other and blast away until the more battered one struck her colors and surrendered.
