Four pack mules in artillery harness, designed to carry the DeBange 80mm Mountain Artillery gun (A-1). The mule on the left carries the barrel, the next mule carries the carriage and wheels, and two carry ammunition. Set consists of 4 mules, four ammunition boxes and two spare packs.
This method of transporting the mountain guns was used by the Alpine batteries in North Africa and in France right up through WWII.
Although these mules wear the French harness, the harness varied but little among countries--these mules could carry any load for any country.
The mules pictured are loaded with the deBange Mountain Gun (A-1) in addition to the ammunition boxes and spare packs.
NOTE: All figures are sold plain (not primed or painted) and without the bases shown.
