The Carrot Cavalry formed into two ranks charge the Gun.

Like Captain Mercer at Waterloo, the cannon is double loaded canister over shot with #12 pellets over BB solid shot. One video is at regular speed and one in slow motion plus a few photos.

One of the troopers in the 1st rank was cut in two by the solid shot and the trooper in the 2nd rank was killed by the solid shot as well. The canister hit all six front rank men or horses except for one.

Obviously that vile engine must be outflanked.

That was very cool. Interesting to see the grape vs round shot (so to speak) damage differences.

I think this series of postings has been truly inspired. Really witty, but also with an excellent message carried. Well done indeed.

What is the reload time?
That could be crucial if the surviving carrots pass morale v
