That is a 6 pounder smoothbore Napoleon. Actually, you could penetrate a LolTraktor with that thing.

Penetrating a loltraktor is really not going to be that much of a challenge, if you shot a pack of butter at it with a slingshot it would probably lose the commander.

Considering the muzzle velocities and shot weight used in those cannons, the LolTraktor would stand little chance of surviving at combat range.

Some data:

LeichTraktor maximum armour: 14 mm, for both turret and hull.

The cannon itself could be either a: 6 pounder smoothbore or a 12 pounder of the same type - pretty hard to tell from the picture, I don't have any good reference for size comparison. But the muzzle velocities for those two are:

6 pounder: 6.1 pounds (2.77 kilos) projectile at 1440 to 1500 feet per second, at a range of somewhere to a 1000 meters.

12 pounder: 12.3 pounds (5.58 kilos) projectile at pretty much the same velocity and range.

So, in my humble opinion, it would have torn a LolTraktor to pieces.

but it would take something like 15-30 seconds to reload

Only with gold ammo.
