Descripción

'ou essai surl'etat actuel des moyens de la force maritime; sur une espece nouvelle d'artillerie de mer, qui detruirait promptement les vaisseaux de haut-bord; sur la construction de navires a voile et a vapeur, de grandeur moderee, qui, armes de cette artillerie, donneraient une marine moins couteuse et plus puissante que celles existantes; et sur la force que le systeme de bouches-a-feu propose offrirait a terre, pour les batteries de siege, de places, de cotes et de campagne'. Henri-Joseph Paixhans 1783 - 1854. He graduated from the École Polytechnique, fought in the Napoleonic wars as an artillery officer and became the representative ( Député ) for the Moselle department between 1830 and 1848. In 1823 he invented the first shell guns, which came to be called Paixhans guns ( or "canon-obusiers" in the French Navy ). Paixhans guns became the first naval guns to combine explosive shells and a flat trajectory, thereby triggering the demise of wooden ships, and the iron hull revolution in boat building. Paixhans also invented a "Mortier monstre" ("Monster Mortar"), using 500 kg bombs, which was used to terrible effect in the Siege of Antwerp in 1832. He was also a naval theorist claiming that a few aggressively armed small units could destroy the largest naval units of the time, making him a precursor of the French "Jeune École" school of thought.
