Prussian Artillery


Before 1805, Prussia spread its artillery pieces - usually 6-pounders - among its infantry with each battalion having its own large gun.

Changes to the system meant that by the 1806 Campaign against Napoleon Bonaparte, the battalion guns had been boosted by four foot-artillery regiments and a horse artillery regiment.

The reserve foot units had heavier weapons, two 10-pounders and six 12-pounders, while the horse artillery used six 6-pounders and two 7-pounder howitzers.

In 1813, Prussia made a huge effort to improve its field firepower and went from just over 200 cannons to 400 cannons in six months.

Prussia's cannon carriages, wheels and limbers were light blue while the metal pieces were painted black.
