The Long Tom Cannon is a heavy artillery piece made famous by the Long Tom Carrier SPG. The Long Tom was later adapted for use on 'Mechs. This weapon does a whopping 30 dammage over a decent sized splash, and can anhilate most light 'Mechs with one direct hit. However, the Long Ton weighs a truly massive 30 tons (as much as a Spider!). A ton of ammo gives only five shells, so missing can be costly. Even the Atlas can only carry one of these fearsome weapons.
