The Cannon or Field Cannon is an artillery unit in American Conquest, best utilized in sieges. Cannons are built at the Fortress and can be upgraded at the Town Center. All European factions have access to Cannons after building an artillery depot at the Fortress.
The cost for every new Cannon on the battlefield increases by 40% multiplicatively.
Attack Ground: Fire at a designated location.
Prepare for fire: The Artillery-crew executes the windup animation early, preparing to shoot instantly.
Fire Grapeshot: Fire a devastating close-range shot that damages all units in front of the Cannon.
The cost and creation time of Cannons can be drastically lowered by researching the Foundry mechanization and Develop new metalworking methods-technology chains in the fortress.
The Foundry mechanization technology chain doesn't discount the shown values, neither additively nor multiplicatively. The advertised discount of 35% is misleading because:
Wood does not receive a discount
The discount value of iron is 26.2%
The discount value of gold is 30%
The discount value of coal is 46%
Develop new metalworking applies multiplicatively.
