Recommended Posts

A 24-pounder cannon from the swedish HMS Vasa (1628). I couldn't find any blueprints for the beuty though.

That looks to be a Gunnade. Wrong carriage form for a Carronade.

This book has also some chapters dedicated to guns, but English only though:

how effective range these weapons???

Depends on a lot of factors. For example caliber of the gun, how much powder is used, quality of the metal, quality of the forging of the guns and so and so on. But i believe somewere between 200m and 1000m on land and also depends what type of canon.

here is a list of how far cannons could shoot the numbers i used are effective range on ships not maximum range and also i take in account the amount of gunpowder used for certain type of projectile and quality besides what i have earlier mentioned
