Polish 9-Barrel Flintlock Volley Gun
.....On display at the National Museum in Krakow, Poland......
That’s really unique. Gonna have to learn some more about it.
Probably heavy and slow to load, be good for the first 9 shots though! Unless they all went with one trigger pull!
Sure looks like they all go off at the same time,
and I think I see an attachment at the bottom
to hook up to a mount - probably Very Heavy.
It's a volley gun. They all go off at the same time.
It was an anti-personnel weapon serving much the same purpose as canister shot out of a cannon against massed troops, but not as effective and much more complicated.
