    1864...

    for 1862, you'll need to find out what type of artillery you want, e.g mounted, light or heavy. they all had different manuals.

    you cant forget that 2 years made a massive difference in this time, it was the height of the industrial revolution after all.

    Hmm... so for all of us artillery companies, would we need to choose one type of artillery to specialize at? Or would we have access to each type?

    Also, the manuals were both very interesting and informative. Thanks for posting them here.

    I imagine that will be up to the admins of the server you are playing on.

    The question is, how many types of cannons will be available in the game.
    Cannons, mortars, howitzers, heavy siege artillery etc.

    Only the types that were present in the Maryland Campaign, for now. When we expand, and different equipment will be required for that expansion, then it will be added.

    Like Hill already said, the artillery which was used at Antietam.

    If you check the reports from that battle, you have tons of different pieces, like 10lb Parrots, 6lb Smoothbores, 3-in Ordnances, 12lb Napoleons, 12lb Whitworth, 12lb Howitzers, Hotchkiss RML's, and others.
    So they will be represented ingame
