This technology allows the small-scale production of artillery, and reduces the upkeep costs of firearm-equipped units.
Cannons are a most destructive force indeed, but not a brave and noble way of fighting! But, as enemies have cannons, only a foolish tribe would not seek to protect their land and people. The strength of the tribes may be in stealth and surprise, but a new weapon of such power demands new ways.
Historically, the use of cannon by Native Americans was rare, as the European settlers carefully controlled their artillery pieces. They were given away rarely, for a tribe with heavy guns would be a threat indeed. In 1661, the Maryland colonists, supplied their allies, the Susquehannocks, with men, ammunition and a cannon with which to defend their village against Iroquois attack.
Research of Cannon Casting grants access to artillery by allowing construction of a Foundry.
