That is good news.
>So they went from 25 to 10/11 which is still much more than any other nation.
No I was referring just to field artillery. This does not include the myriad of wheels for the siege, garrison and coast guns. Which I think may well be more than the 25 that was counted.
Field Guns [3 wheels]
Rostaing Gun, 4-pdr, 8-pdr and 12-pdr
Mountain Guns so 6 wheels.
4-pdr, 8-pdr and 12-pdr each with two solid wheels
The garrison guns on Gribeauval Carriages each with two different size wheels [M1754 carriage] so 12 wheels
Long 4-pdr, Long 8-pdr, Long 12-pdr, Long 16-pdr and Long 24-pdr
M1732 Valliere limber etc...
Siege guns [2 wheels]
Long 16-pdr, Long 24-pdr
So just for M1777 Gribeauval guns we have 24 wheels let alone the different vehicles. Now excluding the truck wheels we are down to 12 wheels and 12 truck wheels.
The M1786 reforms reduced this to the same wheels as the field guns and possible one size of truck wheel [need to check that]
Coast Guns Manson M1786 Iron guns on Meunier carriages [I think they had the same size truck wheel]
18-, 24- and 36-pdr
As Don has said it is rather complex as to when is a wheel a wheel. Let alone what constitutes part of the Gribeauval System.
