A Snub Cannon is a type of projectile weapon which fires "snub" shells. These shells have a rounded nose which use a combination of sabot and self-forging warhead technologies to generate tremendous kinetic energy upon impact. The drawback is a very sharp drop in speed and accuracy with distance, making it a short-ranged weapon mostly used for demolition or tank-hunting.
