The loop also made rapid dock-to-ship transfer of the weapon safer and quicker. The stout U.S. Carronade is physically shorter than many of the cannons of its time. This design reflects tight shipboard quarters and allowed fast relocating in the space provided. Trunnions are below center. *Carriage not included*
