Abstract:

This handbook has been prepared as one of a series on Carriages and Mounts. It presents information on the fundamental operating principles of equilibrators, on that part of the artillery assemblage which overcomes the unbalance of the tipping parts, or in the case of an azimuth equilibrator, compensates for the effect of tilt of the mount. Comparisons of various types of equilibrators are presented with guides for the selection of the desirable type.
