Garrison and ship carriages differed from field mounts in that the cannon they supported were intended for use in permanent installations, whether aboard a naval man-of-war or in the emplacement of a fortress. Thus, the carraiges were heavier and stockier than those of the mobile field pieces of the period. The wheels, consisting of two but more often four in number were solid and smaller in diameter, their purpose being to take the recoil after firing and to permit the hand-spikeman to make minor changes in direction. Our medium and large-sized models (#573 and #574) have moveable wheels with carraiges of cast alloy. The wheels of #571 and #572 are cast as solid
