ARTILLERY CANNONS

R&D Start Date: 3000 (Lyran Commonwealth), 3030 (Clan Wolf)

Prototype Design and Production: 3012 (Lyran Commonwealth), 3032 (Clan Wolf)

An alternative approach to artillery weapons, artillery cannons are smaller, snub-nosed versions of the common tube artillery pieces. While useful for area-effect attacks, artillery cannons suffer from a sharp reduction in range compared to their standard cousins.
Though well past the prototype stage, artillery cannons have yet to begin consistent, full-scale production.

Canon

The Sniper Artillery Cannon is a scaled down version of the Sniper Artillery Piece capable of direct fire. When mounted on BattleMechs, combat vehicles, and AeroSpace Fighters, it provides artillery support at much closer ranges than its cousin. Essentially a snub-nosed version of the Sniper Artillery Piece, the Sniper Artillery Cannon fires a shell at an enemy location like an autocannon. Unlike an autocannon, the artillery cannon's targeted location isn't an enemy unit but a physical location (hill, tree, depot, etc.)
Artillery Cannons are classified as ballistic weapons, rather than artillery weapons.
