We call trinquival* to the front game of a tank with a very long rudder: it is used to drive artillery and other effects at short distances. There are large and medium ones. The big ones are pulled by horses and the smallest and lightest ones are pulled to the arm. They are used in warehousework, workshops and military parks.


The Trinquival that we have in the Fortress of La Mola (or carriage for bearing cannon or mortar barrels) was used to transport the barrels to the artillery depot when it was necessary to carry out any repair, or to do any special cleaning.

Corresponds to the 1869 model and was manufactured in Trubia in 1871. It is the second one that was built. Its weight is 4620 kg.

Currently, this is the only one to be conserved in Spain.
