Featured battle : Ciudad Real

Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars

Date : 27 March 1809

Sabastiani, commanding the French IV Corps had been sparring with the Spanish for a few days. He saw an opportunity and sent his cavalry plus Milhaud's Division of the Reserve Cavalry Corps in against the Spanish cavalry and scattered them. An opportunist but effective move.

Bofors 40mm light Anti-Aircraft Gun

The 40mm L/60 automatic anti-aircraft gun was designed in Sweden by Bofors in 1928. It became so successful it was simply known as a 'Bofors gun' and in various guises has been used by many armed forces up to the present. This particular example dates from 1937 and is mounted on the original 4-wheeled light carriage and could achieve120 rounds per minute and a ceiling of 4,600m.
