For really long range with standard 8 inch calibre this is quite suitable.

Actually a 12 inch battleship gun with an inserted 8 in tube.
Brings terror to your enemies at more than 130 km range.
Also easy to take apart and move to different position.
Onward noodly pirates!

Oi should find a way of uploadin' some pictures of me home-cooked double-chambered Moon Unit air-powered "cannon". She was the queen of 420 rounds, and self-loading as well.... ye just had to flip a few valves and touch a flame to 'er. Absolutely deadly.

Oi've got plans for me next top-secret weapon, wot Oi'm calling the Tiki Toilet; it'll be self-loadin' and self-firing.

Yarrrr...

That toilet sounds absolutely terrifyin'. O'im not sure if Oi should asks what ammunition you be firin' there. But if it's what Oi think it is, O'ill surrender me garrison without delay.

It might also get the thumbs up from Green Peace for recyclin biowaste.

Arrr Cap'n Dave. Ye be leadin' 'im into a false sense o' security. We both know that our crews - 'aving been brought up on an almost constant diet o' fish head stew - won't be afeared of a few biodegradables. They's might even welcome the change.

That is unless your cannon happens to be a Krupp, which sounds a bit like that toilet gun.

Get a load of this baby.
