BABY CANNON ADDED TO U. S. FIELD ARTILLERY (Nov, 1933)
All the world trembles in fear at the sight of fierce American weaponry.
Well at least all the babies and midgets do.
BABY CANNON ADDED TO U. S. FIELD ARTILLERY
Latest addition to the artillery of the United States Army is a midget cannon, just large enough to take a .22-cal-iber cartridge. It is built exactly to scale, one inch to 100 inches, and reproduces, in all essential details, the larger guns. It enables artillerymen to practice sighting, elevating, and firing, without the expense of costly, large-caliber ammunition. By calculating the trajectory of the projectiles, the gunners’ work is simplified.
