British Royal Field Artillery 18 Pounder & Crew by Britains

A British Royal Field Artillery 18 Pounder Gun and Crew is a beautiful new set soon to be released by Britains and I have mine on pre-order.  I love the new direction Britains is going and I firmly believe they now produce models equal to if not better than many of their competitors. 

By July 1916 this weapon played a key role in the bombardment of German trenches and fortified positions during the Battle of the Somme. A well-trained crew could launch 20 shells a minute at enemy positions with the 18 pound projectile travelling up to a range of 8,000 yards.
