Platforms are an important component of the gun emplacement. In addition to providing a level surface to fire a gun, a platform prevents the gun from sinking or recoiling into the ground. Platforms are constructed of wood, joists are set into the ground and then wooden planking put down to create a floor. In order to reduce the recoil force exerted on the gun carriage, the platforms are usually raised in the back. This slowed the recoil and aided in returning the gun to firing position. Mortar platforms were constructed in the same fashion but they were level, not raised in the rear. The platform for 32-pound gun on a marine carriage was 15 to 18 ft. long (Pousson:1996).
See Gun Platform.
