Very powerful cannon with great range, damage and accuracy. Punishing against defences and companies. Can fire solid or explosive shots.
This fearsome artillery piece is the pinnacle of late Medieval siege-gun engineering. With greater range, damage and accuracy than all the siege guns that come before it, no enemy emplacements can stand up to its fearsome bombardment, nor can enemy soldiers withstand its explosive shots. Generals should fear the gaze of the Basilisk!
