Rifled barrel

#1
Simple concept for advanced cannons.
A rifled barrel doubles the accuracy bonus versus a normal barrel, but every 1m of rifled barrel lowers muzzle velocity by 5% because ‘friction’. A 4m rifled barrel would lower shell velocity 20% but take an accuracy from something like 0.6 to 0.45 over a normal barrel.

Why add this? So slower shells can receive an accuracy bonus without having a massively long barrel. The velocity change would be detrimental to shell AP and time to target of course.
