Howitzer versus Gun - What's in a name?

If you really want to get precise with it 8)(not many do) Howitzers barrel is more than 15times the bore. IE 100mm(4 inc) howitzer has about 1500mm barrel . Gun has barrel length more than 25times the bore. Thus same 100mm piece would mean at least 2500mm barrel. Usually gun or cannon is more than 30 times the bore. Then gun-howitzer is at about 20 times the bore. Anything under 15xbore is mortar. Hope it helps.

In the U.S. Navy the 16" "Gun" is called a "Rifle".
