The Long Tom Artillery Cannon is a scaled-down version of the Long Tom artillery piece designed for use as an onboard indirect-fire weapon. Capable of being mounted on 'Mechs, combat vehicles, and aerospace fighters, the Long Tom cannon is a snub-nosed version of the artillery piece of the same name. The Long Tom artillery cannon fires its shells in an indirect arc, dropping them down on top of enemy units.[1]
