Ballistics: Round Two

A update on our program to develop a device for the launching of lemons: After the success of the first device, a second one was devised that had a barrel 8 feet long and a combustion chamber made of 2 feet of four inch pipe. Sadly it was not meant to be. A shortage of materials and an error in production means that the current model is not what was originally designed. Not like that hinders it at all. In early tests it has shot a potatoes and lemons 150 feet further than the previous cannon, on the range of 500 feet overall on the best shots. Experimentation will continue, even while work progresses on the Ni-ssan.
