Torumekian Edit

Grenade Launcher [1] was mentioned but the visual was actually a rifle grenade.


Mortars [2] are used by the Torumekian Third Army during the siege of Sapata. The mortar shells are lit first then launched, not armed like modern shells.

Dorok Edit

Heavy auto-cannon [3] originally mounted on a Dorok Flying Jar was salvaged by Nausicaä but she couldn't bring herself to use it against the wounded Ohmu larvae.

Cannon [4] on a Dorok Air Monitor is shown using shells, as well as siege guns.
