Historical Info Edit
A field gun is an artillery piece. The term was first used to describe smaller guns that could be taken with an army while marching. In battle the field gun could be quickly moved about the battlefield as needed. Guns installed in the fort, siege cannon and mortars were too large to be moved quickly, and would be used only in a long siege.
