Building on an idea first proposed by Viscount Cardwell, the government has revealed a new machine of war wherein a field gun is housed inside a boilerplate armored box.  The armoured gun box in mounted on an innovative off-rail, steam powered wagon based on George Stephenson’s later railway locomotive designs. The technological marvel is referred to as a St. George’s Chariot, in the hope that it too will be an effective dragon slayer.
