People underestimate the absolutely devastating effects of canister, especially against massed formations. A smoothbore cannon can nearly keep pace with a LMG when it comes to volume of fire measured by individual projectiles. I have oft wondered why no one seems interested in them these days.
I believe this niche is today filled by mortar rounds, John. Plus there are virtually no instances of large formations on modern battlefields.
