In Response To: Re: Howitzer *LINK* ()

Thanks Oliver.

First, I admit that my wording was innapropriate, but I'm far from being a specialist in this matter !

The circumstances : one rwead that, during the bombing of Vienna (11/12 May 1809), 12.000 "obus" were fired. As Savary said that there were 32 howitzers used, and as the bombing continued approximatively 6-7 hours, I was wondering if these numbers were compatibles with the type of howitzers used. :O

The same Savary wrotes : Il y avait en permanence 10 à 12 obus en l'air.

Best Regards

Robert
