Description

A gun is a muzzle or breech-loaded projectile-firing weapon. There are various definitions depending on the nation and branch of service. A “gun” may be distinguished from other firearms in being a crew-served weapon such as a howitzer or mortar, as opposed to a small arm like a rifle or pistol, but there are exceptions, such as the U.S. Air Force’s GUU5/P. At one time, land-based artillery tubes were called cannon and sea-based naval cannon were called guns. The term “gun” evolved into a generic term for any tube-launched projectile-firing weapon used by sailors, including boarding parties and marines.
