Long Tom Artillery is the largest conventional tube artillery piece in MW:LL. It is mounted on the Mobile Long Tom Artillary Tank.

Overview

The Long Tom Artillery Cannon fires its shells in an indirect arc, dropping them down on top of enemy units with devastating dffects and enormous splash radius up to 45 meters (see table below for more details). Direct hit from LT shell is almost certain death for light assets, and if you happen to be within the splash radius then a trip to the nearest repair bay might be the best option.

Artillery is the use of war devices that can far exceed the range of conventional personal and BattleMech weapons, and is primarily used to support an additional force. Due to the highly explosive nature of artillery, most artillery weapons cause not only substantial primary damage, but also secondary damage to adjacent areas, that is to say Mass Bombardment.
