Wooden Cannon by Imperator-Zor Wooden Cannon by Imperator-Zor
This cannon is made out of an tree trunk which has been bored out had a vent drilled into the backside. It also has a few iron band attached around it to improve it's strength and a smaller log attached to it's underside to serve as a basic trunion. Such cannons as this can be made fairly quickly if there are logs available by people who don't have dedicated foundries and can fire both roundshot and grapeshot at enemy formations to blast them apart. However even with iron bands reinforcing them they are also fragile and can only be fired a handful of times before being worn out to the point that they are as much a danger to their crews as their targets. As a rule after each battle they are cut from their carriages, broken up and used as firewood.
