The Rodman gun is any of a series of American Civil War–era columbiads designed by Union artilleryman Thomas Jackson Rodman (1815–1871). The guns were designed to fire both shot and shell. These heavy guns were intended to be mounted in seacoast fortifications. They were built in 8-inch, 10-inch, 13-inch, 15-inch, and 20-inch bore. Other than size, the guns were all nearly identical in design, with a curving bottle shape, large flat cascabels with ratchets or sockets for the elevating mechanism. Rodman guns were true guns that did not have a howitzer-like powder chamber, as did many earlier columbiads. Rodman guns differed from all previous artillery because they were hollow cast, a new technology that Rodman developed that resulted in cast-iron guns that were much stronger than their pred

  • Los cañones Rodman fueron diseñados por el capitán del Ejército de los Estados Unidos, Thomas J. Rodman y se destacaron en la Guerra de Secesión.
  • Het Rodmankanon was een groot kaliber kanon uit de periode van de Amerikaanse Burgeroorlog ontwikkeld door Thomas Jackson Rodman. De kanonnen waren ontwikkeld als bewaping voor kustforten om vijandelijke schepen de toegang tot havens en andere strategische objecten te ontzeggen. De Rodmankanonnen waren uiterlijk identiek met uitzondering van het kaliber.

  • Le canon Rodman est un type de columbiads de la guerre de Sécession, conçu par l'artilleur de l'Union (1815–1871). Ces pièces d'artillerie lourde étaient conçues pour tirer aussi bien des boulets que des obus ; elles étaient destinées aux batteries côtières. Elles ont été coulées en calibres de 8 pouces, 10 pouces, 13 pouces, 15 pouces, et un de 20 pouces. Hormis la taille, les canons étaient tous de conception identique, de forme tronconique, dotés d'une grande cascabelle aplatie avec une roue dentée pour rectifier la hausse. Contrairement aux autres columbiads, les canons Rodman étaient dépourvus de magasin à poudre de type obusier ; mais leur principale différence avec les pièces d'artillerie antérieures tenait au fait que leur canon était alésé dans la masse : le développement de cett
