First country to put a man on the moon.
Wait, we're capitalizing "porn star" now?

What about her lawyer who was lauded by left wingnut media outlets as a hero and possible future presidential candidate before he turned out to be such a sleazebag that he's now rotting in prison for stealing from his other clients and trying to extort a megacorp.

I believe that is a French 75 and the mortar hadn't been invented yet. Picture is from WWI.
Wikipedia states:

History​

Mortars have been used for hundreds of years. The earliest mortars were used in Korea in a 1413 naval battle when Korean gunsmiths developed the wan'gu (gourd-shaped mortar). Choi Hae-san (1380–1443), the son of Choe Mu-seon (1325–1395), is generally credited with inventing the wan'gu. In the Ming dynasty, general Qi Jiguang recorded the use of a mini cannon called the Hu dun pao that was similar to the mortar.

The first use in siege warfare was at the 1453 siege of Constantinople by Mehmed the Conqueror. An Italian account of the 1456 siege of Belgrade by Giovanni da Tagliacozzo states that the Ottoman Turks used seven mortars that fired "stone shots one Italian mile high".


US Army 13-inch mortar "Dictator" was a rail-mounted gun of the American Civil War.
