Big Red Guns
These are eight inch artillery from the Soviet Union. These heavy guns were used in batteries of four guns.
Each battery fires smoke to adjust their artillery fire.
The various flags, supplies and fire direction centers for my Russian guns.
Each battery gets a letter combination of R for Russian and a second letter for the particular battery. Without their supply dump, the guns cannot shoot.
Without their fire direction center the guns cannot fire indirect fire, only direct fire at targets that are visible from the guns.
