DELUXE 18th CENTURY EL TIGRE FORTRESS AND NAVAL CANNON SKU: 413 DENIX This 18th century (1/5th scale replica) model of the Spanish cannon, "El Tigre" was primarily used as a fortress gun though some ships of the line were sturdy enough to employ them. Since these cannons were not used as field artillery they were often heavier and shorter. The steps in the carriage were used to adjust the angle of fire. An impressive 18 inches in length overall, this beautiful 1/5 scale reproduction is truly a remarkable display for your home or office. Features an ornately designed 17 1/4 inch metal barrel with antique brass patina finish and metal furniture.
