Light cannon designed for use against soldiers rather than walls.
The serpentine is so named, because its long slender barrel resembles a snake. This piece is designed for attacking enemy soldiers, rather than walls. Its long thin barrel gives it good range and accuracy, and its small calibre ammunition makes it quicker to reload than heavier pieces.
