Carronades were the first cannon technology to be put aboard ships. Considered obsolete by the Procyon and Imperial Navies, they still see use by the pirate clans because of their ability to deliver tremendous damage. Unfortunately their poor accuracy, and slow speed make them useful only in close ranged battles.
Pros: High damage, Likely to cause severe fires.
Cons: Short Range, low velocity.
Mounts: Light, Medium, Heavy
Notes and TriviaEdit
- Carronades cost points, rather then give points, if you seek to replace LaserBall Cannons with Carronades.
- Due to their obsolete status many civilian vessels are equiped with Carronade weaponry. This is another reason why Carronades are widely used by the pirate clans.
- Carronades were a type of smoothbore cannon used by the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom from the 1770s to the 1850s.
