Hello everyone,

After their defeat in 1866, the Württembergs adopted the Krupp cannons.

But according to Gerhard Bauer and Markus Stein, only the cannons not the carriages, in fact the old Württemberg carriages of English model were adapted,so that the new breech-loading Krupp guns could be used.

My question is: What model were these old Württemberg carriages of English model?

The carriages of the Württemberg cannons in 1870-71 belonged
SBML 9 pounder 13 cwt of 1801, Armstrong 12-pdr.rifled breech-loaders (RBL) or RML 9 pounder 8 cwt?
