If you use of the term “cannon” which is an interchangeable with “gun” as words borrowed from the French language during the early 15th century, from Old French canon, itself a
borrowing from the Italian cannone, a “large tube” augmentive of Latin canna “reed or cane”.Recent scholarship indicates that the term “gun” may also have its origins in the Norse woman’s name “Gunnildr”, which was often shortened to “Gunna”.The earliest recorded use of the term “gonne” was in a Latin document circa 1339. Other names for guns during this era were “schioppi” (Italian translation-”thunderers”), and “donrebusse” (Dutch translation-”thunder gun”) which was incorporated into the English language as “blunderbuss”.Artillerymen were often referred to as “gonners” and “artillers”.Early guns and the men who used them were often associated with the devil and the gunner’s craft was considered a black art, a point reinforced by the smell of sulfur on battlefields created from the firing of guns along with the muzzle blast and accompanying flash.
In military use, the term “gun” refers primarily to direct fire weapons that capitalize on their velocity for penetration or range. In modern parlance, these weapons are breech-loaded and built primarily for long range fire with a low or almost flat ballistic arc. A variation is the howitzer or gun-howitzer designed to offer the ability to fire both low or high-angle ballistic arcs. In this use, example guns include naval guns. A less strict application of the word is to identify one artillery weapon system or non-machine gun projectile armament on aircraft.
The word cannon is retained in some cases for the actual gun tube but not the weapon system. The title gunner is applied to the member of the team charged with operating, aiming, and firing a gun.
