30 Years' War Regimental piece and carriage.
This is the only preserved Swedish regimental cannon. It is a 1/4 scale model from 1632. It probably shows the apperance of the slightly modified design being manufactured that year. Gustavus, Siegroth and Torstensson tinkered with the design so each new batch manufactured was slightly different. In the end Torstensson introduced an improved design which was somewhat heavier but lacked the problems found in the Siegroth design.
