Cannons

Why aren’t modern militias and guerrillas using cannons?
>cheap and repairable
>concealed for stealth
>mobile by vehicle and foot
>obliterates anything it hits
>versatile ammo
>immune to EW and tracking software.
Theres millions of them that are underutilized. Why hit someone with a howitzer when you can get the personal satisfaction of seeing them turn to red mist by 12lb iron.

    Because recoilless guns are far superior.
    Try to move anything heavier than 20-30 kg and you'll understand without words.

      I doubt a recoilless is better than a cannon pal. Go try firing an rpg at a pirate ship and see how well that goes.

        a gorilla would not have access to an RPG or a cannon. frankly a gorilla on the seas would be a stupid idea in the first place.

          You guys are ignoring the fact that pirates can go on land. Yes, a gorilla could be on a ship and maybe that ship gets boarded by pirates, or maybe the gorilla is trained to shoot a cannon on a ship. But, statistically it's more likely gorillas and pirates would fight on land, maybe some place like Gorilla Island, I don't know. So land-based gorillartillery vs. pirates is more likely.

        Shaped charges are something like 5x more effective than the equivalent weight of solid shot.

          Anonymous

          Wikipedia tells me that a modern shaped charge will penetrate armour grade steel to a depth of up to seven times the diameter of the charge, which would make it a lot more than 5x more effective than a cannonball of the same size if I'm any judge - especially against a wooden vessel

    I don't understand why Civil War-era muzzleloading blackpowder cannons like the one in OP's pic aren't used for hunting elephants and snow geese. You wouldn't have to get dangerously close to the elephant, and you could get snow geese on the ground from a mile away. If you used smokeless powder instead of blackpowder you might get two miles. If you used like a mini cannon one person could carry it. A cannon would work on all game, you'd just need to load it lighter, like 1/3rd the powder and an aluminum cannonball for pheasants and rabbits, etc. With light loads you'd ruin less meat because you wouldn't shoot holes in it, the cannonball would basically club it, like hitting a rabbit with a sledgehammer, thus preserving the meat. And if SHTF you could load it with match heads from the store, or hairspray like a potato gun but vastly more powerful because it's a cannon.

                Of course it doesn't, because you don't have any guns, duh.

    Dude, don't let all the obvious grabber leftist homosexuals here convince you that you should support russia to contradict them. Russia is a dead corrupt state that results from a leftist takeover. The soviets had so many oblivious western leftists convinced they were the utopia. Now, the neo-soviets have convinced oblivious conservatives that they are a nation of based tradpilled anti-degenerates. They are none of that.

      how much does it weigh?
      how are you propelling it?
      how are you at that angle to the front of an MBT without being evaporated first?
      how do you do a follow-up shot?
      how long is the reload?
      what happens to the MBT's buddy who's going to evaporate you?

        >how much does it weigh?
        enough
        >how are you propelling it?
        propellant
        >how are you at that angle to the front of an MBT without being evaporated first?
        cannons are smaller than a whole tank and they don't glow as much
        >how do you do a follow-up shot?
        why would I need to?
        >how long is the reload?
        doesn't matter at that point
        >what happens to the MBT's buddy who's going to evaporate you?
        >implying there isn't another cannon (because cannons usually appear as batteries) lying in wait to fire a proper salvo
        Now sit down and think about your folly.

          not one firing a cannon ball that big and that dense to do that kind of damage. consider your own folly, anon. at least wait until Landships are in vogue

            A giant cannon being used to disable a tank would logically need to be some kind of hidden single shot trap at close range, something camouflaged in a large amount of material, or fired from surprise at a high angle towards a pre-sighted in location.

            I doubt such a large cannon as in that simulation would be required to mission kill MBT, or at least throw a track.

    They did on a couple occasions actually (not including hell cannons because those are more like mortars or something) watch the first 1:15 seconds

    And to answer your question, recoiless rifles are far more efficiant for what the rebels were doing

    There are no militias or guerrillas currently operating who
    1. come from enthicities that ever built cannons (technological interest and skill is genetic)
    2. Dont have access to more modern weapons

    It's an organic reaction to 6 fricking years of RUSSIA STRONK shit from Armatard and co, only for the world to witness the absolutely hilarious disaster that was the 2021 invasion, but still witness Russians STILL simping for a rape filled conscript army
