As the Steelhead Mercenary Company evolved into a larger outfit, capable of fielding full armies for hire, it saw the need to develop an artillery division. This cannon is the mainstay Steelhead artillery weapon, providing blasts of concussive firepower to complement withering volleys of riflemen and the charge of halberdiers. The heavy explosive charge packed into cannon ordnance is quite capable of knocking anyone caught in the blast to the ground, disrupting the formations of advancing soldiers and leaving even those who survive its lacerating shrapnel shaken. TRADE POINTS: The Steelhead mercenary companies are rolling out the big guns with the addition of the Steelhead Cannon Crew in April. This unit specializes in bringing direct long-range damage to any of the numerous armies it can be included in. A target directly hit by it suffers extra damage, and any targets caught in the blast are knocked down. The Steelhead Gunner (PIP 41156) is a perfect match for this unit, making it even more effective.
