The 15th and 16th centuries were marked by significant historical events, including the Age of Exploration, colonial expansion, and conflicts that reshaped the world. Artillery units played a pivotal role during this period of exploration, conquest, and military innovation.

Battles and Wars:

Italian Wars (1494-1559): The Italian Wars were a series of conflicts involving multiple European powers. Artillery was instrumental in these wars, participating in battles such as the Siege of Florence (1529-1530).
Conquest of the Americas: Artillery played a crucial role in the conquest and colonization of the Americas. Cannons were used during campaigns like Hernán Cortés' conquest of the Aztec Empire (1519-1521) and Francisco Pizarro's conquest of the Inca Empire (1532-1533).
Tactics and Strategies: Artillery units were renowned for their firepower and strategic importance on the battlefield. Their tactics involved:

Siege Warfare: Artillery was essential in siege warfare, used to breach enemy fortifications, city walls, and castles. Cannons were used to create breaches through which troops could assault enemy positions.
Field Artillery: On open battlefields, cannons were employed to provide long-range fire support. Artillery crews would position themselves strategically to maximize their impact on enemy formations.
Fortification Defense: Artillery units also played a defensive role, protecting fortresses and city walls by repelling enemy assaults and sieges.
