Armstrong 100-ton gun (WIP)

This is a test piece from my animation that will show how the Armstrong 100-ton 17.7 inch Rifled Muzzle Loaded (RML) gun was operated in the late 1880’s. It is modeled on the gun at Fort Rinella, Malta. The only other gun is at the Victoria Battery, Gibraltar. It fires a 1-ton shell for over 6 miles, using a charge of 450 pounds of prismatic brown gunpowder. Thanks to Wirtartna, Malta for their assistance.
