Many people have heard of the cannon. They may think that its main task in the past war was “anti tank”. In fact, the main task of the cannon is not anti tank. With the development of technology, as a branch, there is a professional anti tank gun. Today’s tank gun should also be regarded as another branch of the cannon.
When the cannon stagnated in the 1960s and began to withdraw from the ground artillery group, the anti tank function was naturally lost. Some of its functions were embodied in the shore defense gun, anti-aircraft gun, naval gun and aviation gun, which were integrated into the howitzer, and are still in use and constantly developing. With the passage of time, it is not surprising that the cannon, an ancient cannon, has disappeared into the long river of history.
