Cossack artillery

Yeah, it's not the biggest gun ever. But don't be fooled.

A well-positioned, expertly-handled piece can be quite effective, and without the logistical hassle of the bigger ones.

Oh, sure, a giant cannon may look imposing, but once the action starts, no amount of size can compensate for the complacent sloppiness or incompetence that such a big gun often inspires. And that's assuming the unwieldy piece has even been brought up in time to participate in the encounter...

In conclusion: it's not the size, it's how you use it.
