        Only against the IG's 125cm ranged arty. I don't
think anyone else can beat the Cannon's 90cm range (equal,
but not beat). Everyone's arty is going to disadvantaged
when you're playing against IG.

        But that's only against IG. No one else has 125cm
ranged arty, AFAIK.

        50 pts for Cannons (Hvy Brg, 90cm range), and I
think Contagions cost 38? pts (Disrupt, 90cm range). I
would probably prefer a normal barrage that could fire
every turn as opposed to the heavy barrage, especially at
that price, but oh well...
