Napoleonic Russian 10-pdr Licorne howitzer 1809-1815 with crew firing
The Licorne (or Unicorn in English) was a different breed of gun to its French howitzer counterpart. It was a uniquely Russian design, being a hybrid howitzer with a long barrel and chambering that allowed a flatter trajectory and improved range and accuracy. They came as quite a nasty surprise for Napoleon’s veterans.
