Uh oh... Why is the breech leaking vapor?

Isn't it always like that after firing? Then the shell comes out?

Generally, gun breeches are the most heavily engineered part of any artillery piece. And a fair amount of that effort does go into ensuring that the breech does not leak. Leaking breeches will mean lost power, accelerated erosion and primer corrosion and injury hazards to the gun crew. Also, in most war artillery footage videos, large amounts of vapor only leaves the breech once it is opened manually for reloading. Substantial amounts of vapor leaving the breech as the gun fires is indicative of a degraded gun, or of an improperly closed breech.

What guns did you base these on? Look like M777.

I believe I borrowed from the M777 and from old škoda guns

Ah artillery, the bane of every sane RTS commander. This reminds me of my battles with friends in Wargame: European Escalation which features realistic ranges on units...So guns like these can shell across the map sometimes...and boy is it a sight.
