I was wondering if the Napoleonic Russian artillery caissons and field forges were similar in appearance to the French ones? I have yet to see any drawing of Russian ammo caissons or field forges.

Besides the obvious color difference?

As a start, look at the Perry 1812 Russians. They have quite range of Russian artillery equipment which is quite different from the French equivalents.

Gentlemen. I thank you for the help. I did not realize until I saw the Perry miniature that some other country other than France used "Sprung" ambulances. and it was the Russians to top it off. Go figure.
