'This is the icon of a falconet'
The Falconet is a simple artillery piece that is, together with the Culverin, the lightest and cheapest artillery cannon in the game that is available to the European civilizations. The Falconet is a useful cannon in battle because it is effective in countering enemy infantry, but the artillery is not as useful at besieging the enemy buildings compared to, for example, the Mortar, however they can do the job quickly in small groups. The Falconet can be upgraded into Field Guns.
