Artillery is often what makes you win a battle.

That is why the Republic created some cannon with different sizes so they are adapted to any battle fields.

In urban war, medium and light artillery are needed and the Republic engineers developped the AV-7, a medium cannon that is adapted to any kind of fields and can easily be moved. With its four legs finished by claws, the cannon is well maintened in the land so the gunner can be very accurate and fire from any position.

This kind of cannon was seen during the battle of Christophisis and offered the victory to the Republic army.

Here are some pics of the cannon :

I did not have a lot of time these few past weeks but I wanted to participate. Sorry if the pics are not as good as I would have liked.

feel free to give me any feedback, I will try to ameliorate this MOC when I'll have more time

That is one nice looking cannon, which I assumed it load 155mm rounds into the chamber.  :tongue: I like the sturdy look of those legs, which give it a much firm look on the ground.

I've always wanted to build this, since I saw the movie. You captured it almost perfectly, the legs are a little small though, but other than that, it looks like you took it straight out of the Clone Wars!
