The Swedish field artillery, as a branch of the army, was created during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) by the great military reformer, King Gustav II Adolf. Following the Dutch model, he introduced the unification of the calibers of guns.
Also, Gustav II Adolf created the regimental artillery, which was to operate in the battle formations of the infantry. These reforms provided excellent results.
In the battle of Breitenfeld (1631), the field artillery of the Swedes was one of the most important factors that ensured the victory of Gustav II Adolf.
Swedish guns were produced with excellent workmanship, especially in cast iron. Christopher Polchem, a Swedish scientist and industrialist, created sights for the weapons and elevating screws perfect for using in a prone position.
