Hotckiss Automatic Cannon
Hi Folks - I am working on a scenario taking place in Nicaragua in the 20's. My superior officer, so to speak, the main scenario designer - is telling me that in the battle we are working on (Las Cruces) there was a Hotchkiss Automatic Cannon, (this is a five barrelled cannon developed in the late 19th Century and used by Britain, the US, and several other countries in the first decades of the 20th Century). The force I am trying to equip is the USMC. I have tried to find this gun not only in the US arsenal, but that of several other countries and I am stumped! Just have not found it. So...
If it is hiding in one of the OOB's, please point me in that direction!
But if it's just not part of SP WW2, can someone help me modify an existing gun to at least simulate the Hotchkiss. What I mainly need is a rate of fire, in SP numbers, that equates to 40 rounds per minute for the real gun. Also - if anyone knows how much ammo was typically carried with these guns, please do let me know.
Thanks so much!
