The Union Hale Rocket Launcher

This is the Union's Hale Rocket Launcher, something I haven't seen on other Civil War Wargaming sites. This one started life as a straw.  These were used throughout the war with very little success.
They were not very accurate.

  1. Love the work - would never know it started out as a straw! It is a nasty looking weapon - regardless of it's actual accuracy or impact on the battlefield. I love seeing your continued work. Regards, Dean

    "Yes dammit! Now come on the Rebs are coming!"
