Sligthly lower velocity than its bretherine hispano cannons it may throw off aim somewhat. It has a good high explosive filler and a fast rate of fire allowing for strafing.

Summarize and briefly evaluate the weaponry in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark pros and cons as a list.


  • High rate of fire
  • Large explosive filler


  • Lower muzzle velocity than its predececor hispano cannons may throw you off in aiming.


Devloped by the british from the hispano cannon serries it featured a higher rate of fire whilst being ligther shorter. Homewer it had a lower muzzle velocity and required manual cocking.


An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
