Stiffy? (yes stiffy)[edit]

A stiffy is a medieval cannon of relatively long barrel and light construction that fired solid round shot projectiles at long ranges along a flat trajectory. Round shot refers to the classic solid spherical cannonball. The culverin was adapted for use by the French in the 15th century, and later adapted for naval use by the English in the late 16th century.

The term "culverin" is derived from the Latin, colubra, or snake, due to the curved handles.
