Royal Gun Salutes mark special royal occasions. On these days salutes are fired from locations in London and other authorised stations in the United Kingdom and the Union flag is hoisted on government buildings. The number of rounds fired in a Royal Gun Salute depends on the place and occasion. The basic salute is 21 rounds. Gun salutes are usually fired at midday unless otherwise stated below. Salutes are not fired on Sundays, so if the date falls on a Sunday, the salute will take place the next day. The Queen’s Birthday Please note that in the gun salute will take place on the following day, on Monday 22 April.
Royal Gun Salutes
The present invention relates to a method for increasing the firing range of air-defence and artillery shells of the type which for reasons concerning firing technology have a rear surface which is at right angles to the shell axis, i. The invention also includes a design of air-defence and artillery shells that corresponds with the said method. It is well known that the rear surface that is at right angles to the axis of the shell while being desirable at firing, has an adverse affect on the shell in the case of long-range firing due to the airflow along the rear edge of the shell causing turbulence which in its turn results in low pressure and drag to the rear of the shell thus limiting the maximum range of the shell.
The base-bleed technique has been much used in recent years to increase the range of air-defence and artillery shells without having to increase muzzle velocity and thereby the size of the propellant charge to a level which the gun in question would not withstand. The base-bleed technique is based on allowing gas to flow out from the rear surface of the shell preferably during the release of heat, and the flow rate of the gas in such a case shall be at a level that enables the gas flow to eliminate most of the low pressure and the drag caused.
Although the base-bleed device is similar to a supplementary rocket motor with its propellant loaded interior chamber and its central flow outlet, its function is totally different from that used in shells which are fitted with supplementary rocket motors known as sustainers to increase firing range.

Preparing for the Attack on Vimy
Artillery played an important role in many battles during the Civil War, and reflected how advances in technology could fundamentally change how wars and battles are fought. Please consider these quick facts about artillery to expand your knowledge and think more deeply about the role technology can play in changing history. While relatively mobile compared to siege or naval guns, field artillery pieces were still incredibly heavy.
The guns, therefore, could fire further and much more accurately than the older style of smoothbore cannon. Caisson carriages, which carried extra black powder, were also prone to explode if hit by an enemy shell, as one Confederate gunner who fought at Gettysburg attests. This quickly triggered a Union response, and the two sides fired on each other for over 90 minutes.

Eurostar’s problem with artillery shell collectors
The present invention concerns an artillery-shell rammer with a carriage provided with a shell-accommodation trough aligned with the weapon’s chamber behind the barrel and having a shell positioner at the rear, wherein the carriage travels back and forth on a rail along a track paralleling the axis of the barrel and is coupled to a drive mechanism that accelerates it toward the barrel, and wherein means of braking the carriage are provided at a prescribed distance back of the barrel.
The principle of a free-flight shell rammer is that a shell outside the weapon can be accelerated to the extent that, once it has left the accelerating system, it will continue moving in free flight due to the kinetic energy provided thereby and accordingly rammed into position. The accelerating system employed in the free-flight shell rammer disclosed in the aforesaid publication, and in CH as well for example, includes a carriage.
A shell is laid in the carriage and is accelerated along with it. Upon attaining sufficient velocity, the carriage is braked. The shell flies through the weapon’s breechblock and into the chamber and rams in at the barrel’s grooves.

An unexploded artillery shell dating from World War II was discovered under a runway at Pulkovo airport in Saint Petersburg and safely removed, an airport spokeswoman said on Friday. The shell was found on Thursday as work was being carried out on the runway and bomb disposal experts were called to Pulkovo, the city’s main airport, to dispose of it, spokeswoman Olga Antipova told AFP. The northern city, known at the time as Leningrad, was besieged for nearly days by Nazi troops between September and January , causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of residents.
Heavy fighting between Nazi forces and Soviet troops took place then at Pulkovskiye Vysoti, on the outskirts of Leningrad where the Pulkovo airport is located today.

Artillery is a class of heavy military ranged weapons built to launch munitions far beyond the range and power of infantry firearms. Early artillery development focused on the ability to breach defensive walls and fortifications during sieges , and led to heavy, fairly immobile siege engines. As technology improved, lighter, more mobile field artillery cannons developed for battlefield use. This development continues today; modern self-propelled artillery vehicles are highly mobile weapons of great versatility generally providing the largest share of an army’s total firepower.
Originally, the word “artillery” referred to any group of soldiers primarily armed with some form of manufactured weapon or armor.
