Called "hand guns" to distinguish them from cannons, these are the earliest form of personal firearm utilized by troops of the Holy Roman Empire. Consisting of a rudimentary metal tube mounted on a wooden pole and awkwardly ignited, this basic design left little room for aiming. These weapons caused more panic than actual damage to enemy troops who were shaken by the noise and smoke made when firing. Given their short range, their firers need to be heavily armored and able to look after themselves in close combat.
