Sub-cannons are sets of “small”, easy to use and service ship weapons that can be fire quickly. Often loaded with a slug or ball, sub-cannons have less accuracy at range and inflict less damage than their bigger cousins due to the smaller projectile, less propellant, and often possessing a shorter barrel. In exchange these weapons are reloaded and fired rapidly allowing sustained barrages of projectiles.
Sub-cannons are rated by inch diameter of the barrel and go up in 2 inch increments. All sub-cannons are capable of firing across turns (many time per round) and have a multiplier of X20 with a range 7 and can hit up to 2 elevation above or below. All cannons can use consumable ammunition.
