Generally implemented in defensive missions, the arsenal of the Artillery Korps includes howitzers, anti-tank and anti-infantry variants. These huge weapons are mounted upon a standard chassis, designed by the manufacturers, Steiner Industries. The incredibly heavy weapons are drawn into the battlefield by various tracked vehicles, including variants of the Vorreiters, or Saurian beasts of burden. The most common gun fielded by the BAK is the Dragonfire RK-36 Hellfire Multi-Launch Rocket System (MLRS). Capable of firing volley after volley of fragmentation rockets with relative ease, it is a truly devastating long-range anti-personnel weapon. The crewmen can change the MLRS’ trajectory and how tightly packed the rockets will land; as such the full payload, of up to eight rockets, can affect a much larger area than the average mortar or grenade launcher. Less common is the MKVII Feldblitzer Howitzerkanone, a short barrelled howitzer cannon with an eye-wateringly long range and surprisingly impeccable accuracy for a weapon of this type. Its 105mm barrel can fire two kinds of ammunition, the Feldblitzer Granate 35lb High Explosive shell and the Feldblitzer Schrapnel 28lb anti-tank shell. The former is best used against lightly armoured targets or infantry, whereas the latter shell is devastating against highly armoured targets. Finally there is the 403-8 Feldkanone 125mm Fieldgun, a weapon that is commonly implemented despite its archaic nature. It is cheap to manufacture, but it is the most unwieldy of all the Artillery Korps weapons. The designer of this weapon, Markus Krupp, failed to include a good recoil system, which makes the gun very unwieldy, even for the well-trained Bauhausian crewmen. The 403-8 Feldkanone fires armour piercing case-charge shells, which, when used against armoured targets, penetrate the outer armour and explode internally, with a maelstrom of shrapnel, which is usually enough to halt a vehicle in its tracks as the crew are lacerated by shrapnel.
