Perry's firing and loading crews come together with Swedish 4-pounder guns. My problem: Regiment Rall had 3-pounders at Trenton. They were lost there when the regiment was crushed and surrendered.
So I can use my Hessian gunners with their 4-pounders for any other Hessian unit (up to now I could, however, not verify whether they had this calibre at all).

The NCO in charge of the piece is clearly discernible by his white and red hat pompon.
An alternative would be the British 3-pounders by Hinchliffe that are drawn by limbers.
