Salute cannon??? for AJ2
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

i think they bought/built is as a toy noise maker... it is real, as in real noise maker of a mountain howitzer, only fires blanks and built the carriage to look relatively historically correct... the tube is a re-pop (and is sleeved). the wheels do not military, they look like wagon wheels. what is up with the prolong? that looks like a sailor who cant tie a knot...

(all i can ask is, if you were going to put forth the effort to build the thing in the first place, then why not just built it right?)

Geez,....Shawn!!

To think I thought I was a bit too critical at times. Mr. Green

I noticed the sleeve,....but I must admit to being a bit under-educated on home defense artillery.... Laughing

(Load the charge, add assorted nuts, bolts, & nails....BAM....lol

I am sorry Don, I didnt mean to sound so critical. I probably saw/responded at the end the of my day. I shoot civil war arty live, I just wrote what I was thinking upon viewing the pics. That tube wasnt cheap and the time/effort/materials that they put into the piece were nothing to sneeze at... I dont consider myself a stitch counter, but you can tell when it something is farb...
With my dumb luck, the piece probably belongs to a shooter/competitor I already know! Sorry, no insults intended.
