Two Crowns US Infantry gun is US?

Recommended Posts

Could not move it as well, I tried to get the truck driver to run to is truck and reverse so maybe I could tow it but he never made it back. Never saw it fire but saw impacts from which I assume it was engaging targets way up there.

I know that Bootie posted a video of "Two Crowns", or ten bob as we called them if we were ever lucky enough to have two. I can't remember all the details but you might want to check it out and see what kind of luck he had with the Mountain Gun. It does have a 5 minute pack up time which is something to take into account if you try to move it.

In the Allied orders for that scenario it advises you to *un-deploy* the weapon before startup in order to avoid the long pack-up time so you can immediately shift its location. Some weapons systems in CM have painfully long pack-up times, like the TOW missile launcher in CMSF2.

I just watched Bootie's four 'Two Crowns' videos detailing the battle on his Youtube channel. It was a fun watch. It was especially fun hearing the sound of desperation in his voice near the end (chuckle chuckle).

IIRC support weapons have set-up and pack-up times in their info window at the bottom info window.  Was that not the case with this gun?

It is the case with this gun. I don't own "Rome to Victory". And found out about it's 5 minute pack-up time from Bootie's "Ten Bob" videos.
