Russian artillery gets a Schuvalov secret howitzer

A special edition from Matthias-Manske figures is now the half-pud unicorn ("odinorog"), one of the new batch of artillery pieces, designed by Shuvalov. It is crewed by a corps of bombardiers with the typical, particular helmets.
Russians included a variety of unusual or experimental guns in their field artillery park. The Shuvalov howitzer had an oval rather than a round bore.
More about it later, I have to start with painting!
