The Cannon

The artillery was for decades the most powerful weapon an army could have. In the last century however, it has had to stand back to make room for tanks, airplanes, missiles and lately smart weapons. Yet, the cannon remains as a symbol of power and strength. It is considered a brave action to let oneself be shot out of a cannon. In addition, this dick trick is visually much more interesting than to stage a stelth air craft that bombs at night from 50,000 feets.
